Arsenal Present A Difficult Task, Says Ünder

Leicester City's Cengiz Ünder is looking forward to the challenge of coming up against Arsenal this Sunday evening (7:15pm kick-off).
More on this story...

- Premier League action returns for Leicester City with an away fixture at Arsenal
- The game is scheduled to be a 7:15pm kick-off at Emirates Stadium on Sunday night
- The Foxes are expecting a very tough encounter against the Gunners, according to winger Cengiz Ünder
- Everyone is eager to get back to winning ways after two consecutive league defeats, he adds

With the Premier League clash being played less than 72 hours after City's 3-0 UEFA Europa League victory over Zorya Luhansk, it will require a big effort from the squad to go again for this weekend's game, according to Ünder. 

The Foxes loanee has been speaking about the qualities within City's team, which he believes can help them to gain the advantage at Emirates Stadium. 

"It's going to be a tough game against a very big club," Ünder commented in his pre-match interview with LCFC TV.

"It will be very difficult because it's an away game, but we are a good team with some great players here as well, so I'm sure we're going to do really well.

Arsenal are a good team who play good football, they had great players in the past like Thierry Henry, he was an amazing player. I think they are a different team now to that great team they had before.

"It is important to get something out of this game and I believe we will do our best to do that."

Having previously admired the Gunners from afar, Ünder may now get the chance to face the north Londoners, as the two clubs meet for the second time this season.

He is anticipating a competitive game against the team who went into the weekend sitting just one place below the Foxes in the current league standings.

The Turkey international continued: "Arsenal are a good team who play good football. They had great players in the past like Thierry Henry, he was an amazing player.

"I think they are a different team now to that great team they had before. Also (Leicester City First Team Coach) Kolo Touré used to play for them and now he's with us, so I'm sure we can learn a lot of things from him about Arsenal.

"I expect it to be a very exciting game against them this weekend."

Ünder Feeling Settled In 'Friendly' Foxes Camp

Midfielder Cengiz Ünder speaks to LCFC TV about his early weeks at the Club ahead of Leicester City's trip to Arsenal on Sunday.

Following three wins out of three to start the Premier League season, the Foxes have fallen to defeats in the last two home Premier League games played at King Power Stadium.

Ünder says there is an eagerness within the squad to bounce back from those disappointing results and put in a positive performance when they travel to face Arsenal.

"We had two bad defeats lately and we're not happy with that but what we need to do is forget about those games and concentrate on the next game," he added.

"Me personally and all my team-mates are doing that right now and we will be doing our best against Arsenal to play to the best of our ability and play at our maximum.

"I hope that it will be a good game. Like I said, we need to forget about those two defeats, stay positive and concentrate on the next game."
