Leicester‘s visit to Arsenal this weekend will see two of the Premier League’s most influential players go head to head in a game that could have a major say on the race for the Premier League title.

Riyad Mahrez and Alexis Sanchez are capable of deciding a game in their side’s favour and have done so on plenty of occasions already this season.FBL-ENG-PR-SWANSEA-LEICESTER

Mahrez was key for Leicester in the crucial 3-1 victory against Manchester City last Saturday by scoring at the Etihad. The win now has many people considering the side as serious title contenders with some backing them to go all the way.

Mahrez has played a fundamental part in the Foxes spectacular season by netting 14 goals and providing 10 assists and has outshone Sanchez on the whole this campaign. 

But Leicester are aware of Sanchez’s talent and will be hoping to avoid a repeat of their previous game against the Gunners. On that occasion Sanchez’s brilliant hat-trick saw Arsenal win 5-2 at the King Power Stadium in September.  

Sanchez is a key part of Arsenal’s side – and has scored six goals in 15 league appearances this season – but struggled to make an impact in the 2-0 win over Bournemouth after returning to the side following a hamstring injury.  Arsenal v Stoke City  Premier League

Both players have been subject to transfer rumours this season with talks of a larger contract for Sanchez. Leicester are also keen to tie Mahrez to a new contract. Both teams are keen to keep hold of their star players.

Arsenal have won 12 and lost none of the last 18 Premier League matches against Leicester City and are in desperate need of three points in order to remain in the title race.  This Super Sunday is set to be crucial in deciding who can win the title.
