Our prediction: Leicester v Arsenal

Leicester have this season proved capable of handling the Thursday-Sunday fixture schedule a Europa League campaign brings, and they should edge this encounter with Arsenal.

Jamie Vardy bagged the winner when these sides met at the Emirates in October in a smash-and-grab display. Don’t be surprised if the striker once again pops up with a goal here.

Arsenal still haven’t found the right formula going forward and Mikel Arteta may opt to start Nicolas Pepe despite his ineffectual display against Manchester City. The Gunners could struggle to get past midfield marshal Wilfred Ndidi.

Our prediction: Leicester 1-0 Arsenal (17/2 at bet365)
