Arsenal boss Unai Emery has suggested that Mesut Ozil could feature against Leicester tomorrow.
The experienced playmaker has been a peripheral figure at the Emirates in recent months.
He started against Wolves last week but had previously been on the fringes of the squad.
But with pressure piling on Emery – and the fans eager to see more of the ex-Real Madrid man – Emery has hinted that Ozil will get another chance to impress.
“He’s training well and I think he’s now being consistent in the training, he’s also helping and he’s also positive,” he said.
“I am thinking about him for tomorrow, for the possibility to play.”
Leicester are flying high in the Premier League this season.
They are currently third, having won just one of their last four.
Brendan Rodgers has been tipped as a potential replacement for Emery in north London.
The 46-year-old insists he has sympathy with his counterpart, though.
“When you’re a manager you always have empathy for another manager,” he explained.
“You understand the pressures, you understand the climate we work in.
“But as a manager you really focus on what you can control.
“Unai is a proven coach, he’s an experienced coach, so he’ll be focusing on the performance of the team and not get involved in all the background noise that goes on.”
When asked about the speculation linking him to Arsenal, Rodgers explained that Leicester is his sole focus.
“People link me, at times, to top clubs – I’m already in a top job,” he added.
“This is a fantastic club, a great job for me and in this moment with the ownership we have, the players I have, I’m absolutely loving every minute of it.
“All the gossip and speculation, whether it’s for you or against you, is part of the game.”
