The Gunners fell to a 1-0 loss away to Manchester City last weekend. Despite the loss, it was an overall improved performance at a venue where they have suffered in recent memory, with the club's players having seemingly bought into Mikel Arteta's philosophy. 
 
Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has been impressed by the club's performances of late and believes the North London club are on the right track. 

"I think when you compare the first game after the lockdown, how we played here and lost 3-0 without any chances and how we played today, there’s a big, big difference. We are on the right track and today we lost this game, but next week we have to win and be confident in our play like this," said Leno. 


For the fans
  
 
Leicester also head into this coming weekend's round of fixtures on the back of defeat. The Foxes thumped Manchester City 5-2 late last month, but that victory now seems a very long time ago with a 3-0 defeat at home to West Ham United followed by a 1-0 loss to Aston Villa. 
 
“You're always disappointed when you lose games. You're never happy. But there's enough in that to show with the players we have missing, the guys that came into the team have done well tonight," Rodgers said in the aftermath of their loss to Villa at King Power Stadium. 

“Like I say, it could have been a very easy point and we moved on. But we need to learn to close that game out and if you can't win it, you try and make sure you don't lose it.”
 
Leicester have been dealt another major injury blow with Caglar Soyuncu ruled out until the new year, but striker Jamie Vardy should be fit in time to face Arsenal.

Vardy scored a late equaliser for Leicester in a 1-1 draw in the corresponding fixture last season. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had opened the scoring for the hosts.
