In-form Nigerian midfielder, Alex Iwobi will hosts his compatriots Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfried Ndidi as Arsenal battles Leicester City tonight in a Premier League tie at the Emirates Stadium.
Iwobi, who has made five appearances and scored one goal in Premier League for the Gunners this season will battle Mesut Ozil for the starting shirt.
He is however no doubt to make the bench should the manager hand Ozil the starting role.
Iwobi was a star performer in Super Eagles’ doubleheader win over Libya in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers last week.

On the other hand, the duo of Iheanacho and Ndidi are expected to be on parade for the Foxes as it has been a mixed start to the campaign with four wins and four defeats from their opening eight games.
Both players have starred for the former Champions in all eight Premier League games. While Ndidi completed 482 passes, Iheanacho has netted one goal to his credit.
Meanwhile, the Gunners have found their form under Emery to keep up with the pace set by their top-four rivals, but welcome a Leicester side that could climb up to eighth in the table with a victory of their own.
The last time Arsenal won 10 games on the bounce was when a run of 12 ended in October 2007, and with matches against Leicester, Sporting Lisbon, Crystal Palace and Blackpool to come, it is entirely possible that they could surpass that marker during their current run.
Victory would see the Gunners leapfrog their North London rivals Spurs into fourth on goal difference – and a big enough win could even see them overtake Chelsea in third – putting them just two points behind the leading pair.
