Leicester City vs Arsenal: Preview and Predictions
This is one fixture everyone has been waiting for all week, and it is finally here.
Brendan Rodgers will host Unai Emery and his team at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. Since their 2-1 defeat at Liverpool early last month, Leicester has won four matches across all competitions, scoring a total of 16 goals in four matches.
Leicester this season in the league have 7 (W), 2 (D), and 2 (L). They are currently third in the Premier league table with 23 points from eleven matches played so far. They will aim to maintain this top form when they play against Arsenal.
Arsenal are now the new ‘draw masters’. No matter how many goals you see Arsenal score, they always manage to lose their lead! that has been Arsenal’s new form this season.
In their last four matches, we have seen Arsenal struggle so hard to take all-three points, but somehow, they end up losing it. It must be very frustrating to constantly drop points in such manner.
With Arsenal’s poor defending, its going to be very difficult to stop the fast paced attackers at Leicester.
Arsenal will be without Dani Ceballos due to a thigh injury, Xhaka may likely going to miss as Unai is yet to decide the fate of the midfielder who was stripped of his captaincy few days ago
