Jamie Redknapp has bad news for Mesut Ozil ahead of Arsenal-Leicester clash

Ozil Arsenal 5

The pundit has been previewing the north London side's Premier League clash with the Foxes.

Jamie Redknapp believes Leicester midfielders N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater will be bad news for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil on Sunday afternoon, according to Sky Sports.

Indeed, Redknapp feels Arsenal will achieve a narrow win against Claudio Ranieri's men but has warned that Ozil certainly won't have things his way at the Emirates.

And he thinks Kante and Drinkwater will be breathing down the German's neck throughout...

Redknapp told Sky: "To break Leicester City down, Arsenal will need to move the ball quickly. They'll have an extra man in midfield, so should have passing options, but whenever Mesut Ozil picks the ball up he'll be aware Kante and Drinkwater will be breathing down his neck. They'll need to move it rapidly and precisely.

"I'm predicting a narrow Arsenal win - but it will be a really good game with plenty of goals."

Leicester will certainly be looking to counter anything Arsenal do - both in midfield and, generally, when it comes to their counterattacking football.

It would almost be too much to expect Arsene Wenger - as a Premier League and Champions League manager - to actually try to adapt to his opposition...

The pattern of Sunday's game will be predictable. Arsenal will dominate the ball but it's how Leicester counter and how the Gunners fare in the final third that will decide the outcome at the Emirates.
