Paul Merson has warned Arsenal that they could get “found out” by Leicester City if they fail to adapt their game against the Foxes on Sunday.

The Gunners are preparing to welcome the Premier League leaders to Emirates Stadium as they look to secure victory and reignite their title hopes.

Arsenal are currently third in the table and know that a victory against the Foxes would move them to within two points of top spot heading into the final 12 games of the season.

However, Arsenal have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League since the turn of the year and had only won one of their last four games before last weekend’s 2-0 win at Bournemouth.

And Merson is concerned that the north London side could struggle against Claudio Ranieri’s men if they fail to score an early goal.

Writing in his column for the Daily Star, Merson said: “I just think Arsene Wenger will play his normal game and they’ll get found out. They won’t change for Leicester.

“Arsenal are set up perfectly for Leicester. They will have loads of the ball and there will be lots of space for Leicester to attack.

“Forget what happened at Leicester when they went there and sat back. They won’t do that at the Emirates.

“If Arsenal score early they could run away with it. But the longer it stays goalless the more chance Leicester have.”
