The Foxes are tipped to win the game as the Gunners are in bad form on the pitch, while there are also a number of recent off-field incidents they’ve had to deal with.

Manager Unai Emery was forced to strip Granit Xhaka of the captaincy following the midfielder’s stunning outburst at Arsenal fans during a draw against Crystal Palace last month.

Arsenal are six points off the Champions League spots going into the game and failure to win will leave them with a mountain to climb.

Emery’s status as manager has come under threat with Rodgers tipped to replace him if the club decides to part ways with the Spaniard.



And former Liverpool boss Rodgers dismissed any notion of him taking over at the Emirates Stadium.

He told Sky Sports: “People link me, at times, to top clubs – I’m already in a top job.

“This is a fantastic club, a great job for me and in this moment with the ownership we have, the players I have, I’m absolutely loving every minute of it.

“All the gossip and speculation, whether it’s for you or against you, is part of the game.”
