Liverpool v Arsenal Mesut Ozil v N'Golo Kante

Mesut Ozil will find it difficult to find space to create chances from during Arsenal’s clash with Leicester City according to Harry Redknapp.

The former Tottenham manager has tipped the Gunners to win but says Ozil must be aware of Kante and Drinkwater who will be looking to close him down at every opportunity.

“To break Leicester City down, Arsenal will need to move the ball quickly,” Redknapp told SkySports.

“They’ll have an extra man in midfield, so should have passing options, but whenever Mesut Ozil picks the ball up he’ll be aware Kante and Drinkwater will be breathing down his neck. They’ll need to move it rapidly and precisely.”

The north London based side are five points behind the league leaders and know a defeat could see them slip eight points behind the Foxes.

Leicester City go into the game on the back of a three game winning run including a 3-1 victory over Manchester City.

Arsenal have only managed to win one of their last five games and are in danger of slipping down to forth place.

Ozil been in impressive form this season with six goals in all competitions as well as 16 assists in the Premier League.
