City have endured a tough run of form over recent weeks, but they remain in ninth place in the table as they welcome Arsenal to King Power Stadium on Wednesday (7:45pm kick-off).

The north London outfit are undergoing a period of transition as Arsène Wenger prepares to leave the club after 22 years, but Morgan says the Foxes will focus on themselves - and not the occasion.

“Obviously, we know Wenger’s leaving and they want to give him a good send off by picking up wins in their last couple of games, so we want to try and spoil the party,” he told LCFC TV.

Morgan's Arsenal Focus

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan looks ahead to the Premier League visit of Arsenal to King Power Stadium on Wednesday.

“They had a good result in the last game [a 5-0 win over Burnley] and we know that when Arsenal are on form then they can be pretty devastating.

“We have to be wary of their strengths but at the same time, we have to be confident in our own ability and exploit their weaknesses.”

On the topic of City’s recent fortunes in the Premier League, a source of frustration everyone, Morgan added: “We’re here to win games and we’re here to perform.

“In recent weeks, that’s not been the case. We’ve found it a struggle to find our route to goal and pick up wins and pick up points.

“It’s something we need to work hard on and put right. There’s only a couple of games left but we’ve got to try and finish the season strong and hopefully we can take some momentum into next season.”

Leicester are yet to taste success against Wenger’s men in the Premier League era, a statistic which Morgan would like to set right before the Frenchman departs Emirates Stadium in the summer.

“They’ve struggled away this season so far and we’ve never beaten Arsenal so far in the Premier League so it’s something that we should try and use to our advantage,” the skipper added.

We’ve still got a couple more games to play and we can’t just give up, we’ve got to keep going until the end. The fans deserve it.

“They’re not as confident away as they are at home and we want to make sure we put the pressure on them and exploit their weaknesses, put things right and pick up a win.”

After Wednesday's King Power Stadium outing, the Foxes head to the capital to tackle Tottenham Hotspur and Morgan says both fixtures present exciting opportunities.

"We’re trying to figure out where things have gone wrong and we’ve got to keep fighting," he continued.

"We’ve still got a couple more games to play and we can’t just give up, we’ve got to keep going until the end. The fans deserve it."
