Arsenal will look to maintain their 100% winning record this term when they lock horns with Leicester City in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Following an impressive end to the 2019/20 campaign, Arsenal have been on fire in the new season, winning each of their three matches in all competitions so far, including a win over Liverpool in the Community Shield (albeit via penalty shootout).

In the Premier League, they are coming on the back of two consecutive wins over Fulham and West Ham United. However, on Wednesday, they will face a tricky test against Leicester City in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

On paper, at least, the Gunners have appeared quite unlucky to be drawn against a club like Leicester in the third round. But, they have been in tremendous form under Mikel Arteta, with defensive solidity emerging as one of their biggest assets.

That said, Leicester City, unlike West Ham and Fulham, boast the services of one of the most lethal attacking units in the league, having already scored seven goals in their opening two matches in the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers’s men will also have the home advantage on Wednesday, so it won’t be surprising to see them dominate the proceedings, with Arteta employing a more defensive tactics. And here, at The Hard Tackle, we will run the rule over the two sides ahead of this enticing match-up in the Carabao Cup this midweek.

Team News & Tactics Leicester City

Brendan Rodgers has confirmed, ahead of the game, that he is going to ring in the changes, with the Northern Irishman keeping one eye on the important fixture against Manchester City on the weekend.

Cengiz Under was signed from AS Roma recently and the Turkish international will be hoping to make his debut for the Foxes, although he is unlikely to be a part of the starting lineup. Demarai Gray is set to occupy his role at left wing, with Marc Albrighton starting on the opposite flank.
