Date, time and venue

Arsenal vs Leicester is scheduled for a 7.15pm GMT kick-off tonight (October 25, 2020).

The match will be behind closed doors at the Emirates Stadium with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

The Gunners are behind their guests only on goal difference, having taken nine points from the first available 15 and won both their home matches so far.

The Gunners are level on points with the Foxes going in to the game, but will be boosted with the news that Brendan Rodgers’ side are without a number of key players for the game in north London.

Dani Ceballos and Willian were both injury doubts ahead of the game but they trained at London Colney yesterday and look set to be included.

Highly-rated £28million defender William Saliba was also involved in first team training and could be set for a place in the matchday squad.

Meanwhile, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang looks set to the lead the line after a successful goalscoring cameo appearance against Rapid Vienna on Thursday.
