Arsenal welcome Leicester to the Emirates on Tuesday night.

Looking to put the disappointment of the weekend behind them quickly, Arsene Wenger admitted that Alexis Sanchez could be back for this game but it is likely that he will be on the bench if he is passed fit.

With just a few days rest since the last game it is possible that we will see Wenger make a few changes as he looks to rotate and keep his squad fresh for the run-in but the boss will also be wary of needing to get a result and the effect making too many changes can have.

Nacho Monreal has played well recently but could be rested for Kieran Gibbs while the same is likely to happen with Hector Bellerin and Calum Chambers.

Francis Coquelin could also get a breather with Mathieu Flamini coming in for him.

Danny Welbeck could also replace Olivier Giroud after the later experienced a lot of action on Saturday designed to separate him from his ankles.

Here’s how we think we might lineup for the game on Tuesday night, with a debut for Gabriel in the heart of the defence to give Laurent Koscielny’s Achilles a break:
