Unai Emery: Germany's loss of Mesut Özil is Arsenal's gain

"We will see", said Puel, when asked about Arsenal's title chances.

The 21-year-old has progressed through the youth academy to become a first-team regular at the King Power Stadium and has been an ever-present in the Premier League for Claude Puel's side this season.

The centre-back has not played since rupturing his Achilles in Arsenal's Europa League semi-final, second leg against Atletico Madrid in May, forcing him to miss France's successful World Cup campaign.

"We are one team with a very high level and very high demand for us", he said. "To stay with them, we need to do better and get better at different things". It [playing on Monday] has the advantage for more time to prepare the match - that's one positive. Many former players and greats have warned Arsenal of the ramifications of letting Ramsey go.

'We need to be calm with him.

"I want his performance [to be just] like the other players", the Reds' head coach continued.

Against Leicester, he has the ideal chance to continue building on his form and help Arsenal extend their winning run to ten games.

Arsenal will be grateful that the worldwide break did not leave its lasting effects on most players, barring Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who sustained an injury on Greece duty.

"When the players stop for these games, maybe it can do the focus more for us, with training and improving on things". I prefer to play Saturday or Sunday.

After, we are going to play Thursday, we are going to play Sunday also, two matches very quickly after Leicester.

Leicester City meanwhile have lost three of their last five games including a 2-1 defeat to Everton a fortnight ago.

"I'm sure with the help of the fans and everyone at the club we will be able to do it".

Lacazette endured a hard first season with Arsenal, but has five goals in 10 games this term.

There is a growing confidence and belief around the Emirates that they could achieve something big this season. He is always available for the team.

"He started with me".

If Arsenal's form hits a red patch and the Gunners start struggling to string wins together, that could be what forces the club to dip into the winter market for signings.
