LEI vs ARS Dream11 Prediction
Leicester City will be welcoming Mikel Arteta's Arsenal side to the King Power Stadium for the third round of the EFL Cup. The fixtures are relatively simpler when it comes to the earlier stages of the League Cup, but the two quality Premier League teams will have an early go at one another in order to advance further in the competition. Though there are some quality players from both ends, we can expect Leiecester and Arsenal to give it their all in the cup games, considering Liverpool and Manchester City's dominance in the league. Talking bout recent performances, Brendan Rodgers' men have registered wins over West Brom 3-0 and Burnley 4-2. Meanwhile, Arsenal have been going through a terrific run and have won their opening fixtures in the league over Fulham 3-0 and West Ham United 2-1. Both clubs have momentum on their end and we can expect nothing short but a cracker of a game. With that being said, here is the Dream 11 Prediction for the cup tie.
