Leicester City take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Monday in the Premier League hoping to put an end to the Gunners nine-game win streak.

The Foxes have amassed 12 points for their first eight matches this season.

Claude Puel has a few injury concerns heading into the clash with Demarai Gray, Matty James out injured due to an ankle and Achilles injury, respectively.

Additionally, captain Wes Morgan is suspended after receiving his second red card in three games.

The deteriorating form of Morgan has given £19m summer signing Caglar Soyuncu the chance to make his debut.

The Turkey international has yet to make an appearance for the Foxes despite joining on transfer deadline day.

Puel revealed that Soyuncu is now ready to make the team after settling in.

It remains to be seen whether the 22-year-old will start with Johnny Evans and Harry Maguire available but he gives Puel options as he can also play as a full-back.

Ben Chilwell and Daniel Amartey are likely to get the nod as full-backs.

In the middle, it would not be a surprise to see Wilfred Ndidi and Nampalys Mendy in central midfield.

The attack is expected to be comprised with Jamie Vardy upfront, Maddison and Pereira on the wings and Iheanacho as the No 10.

The Foxes have not defeated Arsenal away from home since September 1973.
