It's familiar territory. This is what Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is saying about their Tuesday match against Leicester City, a collision they have to endure after a valuable defeat to perennial nemesis Tottenham -- via a Harry Kane point.

"Every year we were under threat until the last game... Every year we've managed to do it," he said in a pre-match press conference, according to the International Business Times. "We have a good opportunity to show that we have the strength to deal with that pressure and that we have the quality."

The Saturday shortfall of 2-1 at White Hart Lane ended a five-game winning streak and placed Arsenal two points away from the current Top 4, the report said. The match versus the bottom team is their attempt to secure a berth in the Barclays Premier League's semifinals. View the rankings here.

The International Business Times noted that for 17 Champions League seasons now, Arsenal has engaged in cliff-hanger matches and emerged among the Final Four.

They wish to continue on in that plot at the Emirates Stadium when Leicester City pays them a visit, said Premier League.com.

To secure a win, according to Talk Sport, Wenger would use £35-million summer signing Alexis Sanchez after he was absent for two games, on a hamstring injury. However, the report noted that he might be coming off the bench instead of starting.

However, Sanchez should be with Theo Walcott in the starting midfield to keep the opposition at bay and the attempts at the goal going, said Metro.

"If you respond well, it's very good," Premier League.com quoted Wenger as saying.

BBC.com noted that Wenger will show no mercy on the road to an unbeaten run, the only way to break into the Top 4.

Leicester City comes from a 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace at home, Saturday.

"For myself as the manager of the side who are bottom of the Premier League, what I can't do is hide from the facts... The facts are that we are where we are and, so far, we have not been beaten in a game where we've been absolutely roller-coastered," said manager Nigel Pearson, according to the Premier League.com report.

Pearson was in an altercation with Palace midfielder James McArthur, said the International Business Times, adding that there were claims that he was sacked.

He will be missing goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, Zouma Bakayogo and Chris Wood, it added. Defender Robert Huth will be back from suspension to possibly help.

However, one fact from Premier League.com suggested that it will be an uphill climb -- Leicester City has not won the past 18 Arsenal encounters.

The International Business Times is betting on a 3-0 for Arsenal, which also has crucial matches against two teams in the Premier League and two more in other tilts over the next 16 days.

Watch the game at 2:45 p.m EST (7:45 p.m. GMT) on NBC Sports Premier League Extra Time.
