Arsenal vs Leicester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Arsenal came in with a brilliant second-half performance to pick up a 5-1 victory over Fulham in the latest London derby for Unai Emery’s men. Alexandre Lacazette’s opening goal may have been cancelled out by Andre Schurrle just before half-time, but Arsenal lashed out their opponents in the second-half with a string of goals – through Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2). Leicester City’s three-game unbeaten streak ended with a 2-1 home defeat against Everton. The visitors took the lead after just seven minutes through Richarlison, but Ricardo Pereira’s equaliser came just before half-time. The crucial moment in the match came in the 63rd minute when Wes Morgan was sent off for a second yellow card and Gylfi Sigurdsson came up with winner just 11 minutes later.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Leicester have a pathetic record when it comes to away games against Arsenal. The last time the Foxes picked up an away point against Arsenal was in 1995 when the Gunners were playing at Highbury. Arsenal have had an interesting pattern over the last six matches with the club drawing at half-time and winning at full-time. It is extremely rewarding to back a continuation of this trend and it is a serious possibility considering that Leicester have been losing at half-time in just two of their last six league games.

Alexandre Lacazette has been responsible for running the show at Arsenal. His hold-up and link-up play have been excellent, and he already has four goals and two assists in just eight league games. I would back Lacazette to score anytime.

Draw at half-time and Arsenal win at full-time – 7/2

Alexandre Lacazette to score anytime – 11/10

Arsenal saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Arsenal Preview

Unai Emery is slowly starting to establish his credentials at Arsenal and it appears that the Gunners may no longer be considered as just a threat for the top four places. The Gunners are only two points behind the trio of Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea. Since the back-to-back losses against City and Chelsea, Arsenal have gone on a nine-game winning streak in all competitions. The confidence given by those results was quite apparent in the win over Fulham. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are the top scorers with four goals each.

Arsenal Team News

Mesut Ozil (back) is doubtful for the game. Laurent Koscielny (Achilles tendon), Sokratis (ankle), and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are out of the game.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester City have been doing well enough to remain in the vicinity of the Europa League qualification spots, but manager Claude Puel will know the importance of a string of victories in order to compete with the likes of Bournemouth and Wolves. The return of just two wins in the last five games is not good enough for a Europa League qualification spot. Leicester need to find a way to improve their defence, which has kept just one clean sheet in the last six league games.

Leicester City Team News

Wes Morgan is suspended for the game. Demarai Gray (ankle) and Matthew James (Achilles tendon) are unavailable for the club due to injuries.
