All the team news from the King Power Stadium as Arsenal arrive in Leicester
Sunday 31 August 2014
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger names Alexis Sanchez in his starting line-up to face Leicester City as Yaya Sanogo replaces the injured Oliver Giroud up front.
Esteban Cambiasso, on the other hand, starts on the bench for Leicester City after completing his free transfer from Inter Milan earlier this week.
The visitors hand starts to the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla while Jack Wilshere and Lukas Podolski are available should they be required.
Meanwhile, Nigel Pearson sticks with the eleven who performed so admirably during the 2-0 away defeat to title-favourites Chelsea last weekend.
Riyad Mahrez and Jeffrey Schlupp, who have impressed down the flanks for the Foxes, have the chance to add to their decent start to the Premier League season. Danny Simpson, signed from QPR yesterday, isn't eligable.
Leicester City: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky, Mahrez, King, Hammond, Schlupp, Nugent, Ulloa.
Arsenal: Szczesny, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil, Alexis, Sanogo.
