LEI vs ARS Dream11 Prediction: Leicester City and Arsenal face off in the pick of the EFL Cup third-round ties at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday night. The only all-Premier League tie of the round is a meeting between two sides each with 100% records so far this season, and it will be interesting to see what kind of teams Brendan Rodgers and Mikel Arteta field here. Even with significant rotations to the pack though, there is plenty of strength in depth in both camps and both goalkeepers are in for busy evenings given the attacking talent likely to be on show. The Foxes have performed well in this competition over the last few years having reached at least the quarter-finals in the last three seasons and home advantage may just give them the edge in this one. They have won their last three matches against Arsenal at the King Power Stadium fairly comfortably and, although this match is likely to see both teams score.
