Good evening and welcome to the Emirates Stadium where Leicester City take on Arsenal, behind closed doors, in what could prove to be a huge game in their season. Elsewhere this evening, Palace will play host to Chelsea (18:00) in a game that could see the Foxes dropped to fourth with a win. And on Thursday night Manchester United will take on a struggling Aston Villa, hoping that dropped points by Leicester this evening will lift them level on points. Meanwhile, tonight's opponents Arsenal are down in seventh and will be keen to guarantee themselves a spot in the Europa League for next season. Mikel Arteta's side have Burnley, Sheffield United and Tottenham breathing down their neck with only five games left to play in the Premier League.
