Arsenal make a trip to the King Power Stadium where they take on Leicester City after successive Premier league defeats has seen them lose sight and grip on a top-four finish.
Like Arsenal, Leicester are also locked in a battle of their own, a four team race for seventh place finish which could well turn out to be enough for the final Europa league qualifying spot.
However, the Foxes have tripped off a little, losing by a goal to Newcastle United and following that up with a draw at West Ham United.
Since the appointment of Brendan Rodgers, Leicester have climbed up two places on the standings. Five wins, one draw and two defeats is how they have performed so far under the former Celtic manager.
Finishing seventh on the log by season’s end will be a goal for Brendan. With Arsenal and Chelsea left to play, he will be willing to push for great upsets against these ‘Big Six’ clubs.

Arsenal were doing just fine some matches back but two defeats in three league games has since their campaign turn on its heads.
The advantage they hold at the moment is that two of the teams embroiled in the top-four race – Manchester United and Chelsea – will be facing off at Old Trafford themselves.
Going even further back, it is three defeats from four games. The issue of concern for Emery would be his side’s defensive display against Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Prior to that, they had gone seven games conceding only one and all of a sudden have shipped in a mammoth six in two matches.
They look to be returning to their poor defensive performances but another loss at Leicester City means that the North London club may be looking at winning the Europa league as their only possible route to qualifying for Champions League football next season.
