Arsenal can’t seem to get out of their own way right now, at least on the road. Which is annoying, because two of Arsenal’s last three games this season, including today’s, happen to be away from the Emirates. I’m tired of saying “this could be a tricky match”, because in all honesty, these last few matches shouldn’t have been tricky, but here we are, staring down the barrel of another game that on paper looks relatively straightforward, but that Arsenal will no doubt make a whole lot harder than they need to.
After having an unspecified sinus procedure earlier in the week, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s back and ready to roll, according to the club, so other than the usual long-term injured, Arsenal are at full strength, as are Leicester City.
Arsenal can’t afford to drop any more points, so starting today they’ll have to dig deep and find something that they haven’t had in a while if they want to get something out of a game away from home. Time is running out.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: If this game goes south, Arsenal Women are playing at the same time - and unlike the men, Arsenal Women are consistently good! They’re in first place and a win today means they’re champions. If you’re in England, the game is on BT Sport 2; if you’re not, I cannot legally tell you how to see this game, nor should you discuss how one would do such a thing, but rest assured it can be done, should the men do what the men have done of late.
