Arsenal take on Premier League champions Leicester City hoping to turn around a disastrous start to the season losing 4-3 at home against Liverpool.

Mesut Ozil has been included in the provisional squad set to lock horns with the Foxes but he faces a race against time for match fitness.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger rested Ozil against the Reds and will probably feel justified in his decision considering Aaron Ramsey – who was not totally fit – who did play ended up getting injured.

Ozil has been on an extended break due to his Euro 2016 duties but the Germany intentional of Turkish origin could make an appearance against Leicester at some stage even if he does not start.

 

Provisional squads
Leicester: Schmeichel, Zieler, Chilwell, Fuchs, Morgan, Huth, Rodriguez, Wasilewski, Simpson, Schlupp, King, Mendy, Drinkwater, James, Amartey, Gray, Kapustka, Albrighton, Mahrez, Musa, Okazaki, Vardy, Ulloa.

Arsenal: Cech, Ospina, Debuchy, Bellerin, Holding, Koscielny, Chambers, Gibbs, Monreal, Coquelin, Elneny, Xhaka, Cazorla, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez, Campbell, Walcott, Akpom, Giroud.
