Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that a high level of focus is a necessity in order for us to overcome the challenge that is Leicester City on Tuesday night.
Following a disappointing performance and subsequent result against Spurs, we really have to bounce back against a team fighting for their lives.
Alexis Sanchez is set to return to the squad, but Wenger is demanding high levels of concentration if we are to overcome a side which gave us some trouble earlier on in the season at the King Power Stadium.
“[Leicester] look like a team who plays in the Premier League and fights to survive in the Premier League,” Wenger told Arsenal.com.

“That means it demands a complete focus from us and that we respond very strongly to our defeat on Saturday.”
With eight of our last 14 Premier League games at the Emirates Stadium, home form will be crucial to the outcome of our campaign. Nine of those 14 fixtures are also against teams in the bottom half of the table – teams we’ve become renowned for overcoming in recent years.
Just as we won three consecutive league games for the first time this season, the team must conjure up another sustained run of form.
