Wenger Backs Arsenal Over Leicester; Fears Mahrez, Rules Out Cazorla

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that the club are looking forward to securing the three points in Sunday's Premier League clash against leaders Leicester City at the Emirates.

Arsenal will hope to do the double over Leicester and also cut the Foxes' lead from five points to two, when both teams meet on Sunday.


Speaking ahead of the game, Wenger said in his pre-match press conference that the winner of the league is undecided yet.

He also singled out Riyad Mahrez for his performance so far this season.


"I don't deny pressure. It is the kind of game we relish and look forward to," Wenger said.

"We have to get the momentum back. We want to find consistency in our results for the season.

"I believe there is still a long way to go. Leicester are in a strong position. They are more convinced with their quality. Their belief has been strengthened."

"Mahrez creates chances in tight areas. He is a provider and scores."

He hailed Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri for what he has achieved so far with Leicester.

"I am pleased he is doing well. He has done well where ever he has gone."

Wenger went on to give information about who will be available for the game, and the injury front.

"We will have the same squad for Leicester but there is still two days to go."

"I can't count on Wilshere and Cazorla for the next few weeks. Welbeck, fitness wise he is there, he just need to get competition ready."

And on the availability of Per Mertesacker for the match, Wenger said: "He has played many games. He is a leader but I have three centre backs to adapt."
