Leicester City will play their first English Premier League game of the year on Wednesday when they host Tottenham Hotspur.

The first game in matchday 10 of the English Premier League season sees Leicester City host Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.

There is nothing separating these two teams, who have both won 4 games, lost 3 and drawn twice.

Leicester are in ninth place with 14 points, level with the Gunners but boast a better goal difference than Mikel Arteta’s side.

Arsenal are unbeaten in eight in all competitions as they beat Aston Villa 3-1 last Friday in the Premier League and beat Leeds 2-0 in midweek in the League Cup.

Leicester’s fourth win on the bounce in all competitions came in Wednesday’s EFL Cup contest with Brighton- although they had to rely on their penalty prowess to progress after a frustrating 2-2 draw on home soil.
