Leicester City vs Arsenal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leicester City suffered more disappointment towards the end of the campaign as the team lost 2-0 at home against West Ham. The foxes were once again went disappointing in the game and fell behind when Joao Mario scored in the 34th minute. Mark Noble’s extraordinary long-range effort doubled the advantage for West Ham in the second half. Arsenal gave a fitting farewell for Arsene Wenger after beating Burnley 5-0 at the Emirates. A brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sandwiched goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Sead Kolasinac, and Alex Iwobi to make the day extremely special for Wenger.

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

Betting Tips and Predictions

Leicester have had a poor reason run against Arsenal after losing five out of the six games. However, the King Power Stadium has posed a lot of difficulties for Arsenal in the past. The gunners have only picked up two wins in the last six visits to this stadium. Arsenal are without a win in the last four away matches across all competitions. In fact, the gunners have lost all of the away league games in 2018. Leicester may not capitalise on this form since they are going through a similar phase of their own. I would back a draw.

Claude Puel has seen his team go three matches without a goal. However, the likes of Jamie Vardy would relish playing against Arsenal, who have conceded more than 2.5 goals in all but one away league game in 2018. I would back a game with over 1.5 goals from Leicester.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester City have been unable to invoke any kind of an improvement in form despite the club going on a terrible turn for the last few weeks. The foxes have little need to pick up their momentum in the last few weeks of the campaign; players do not want to pick up unnecessary injuries especially with the World Cup ahead. It is highly unlikely that Leicester will be showing an improvement and upturn in results in the last two games. Jamie Vardy remains stuck on 17 league goals for the campaign and he has been unable to score in the last three games.

Leicester City Team News

Kasper Schmeichel (ankle), Alexander Dragovic (shoulder), Matthew James (Achilles tendon), Wilfred Ndidi (hamstring), Shinji Okazaki (ankle), and Fousseni Diabate (illness) are unavailable for Leicester City.

Arsenal Preview

The impressive 5-0 victory will not be sufficient for Arsene Wenger, who will look to go out on a high by winning the last two games. The success from these two games does not mean much for Arsenal, who are almost certain to finish above Burnley after the emphatic victory during the weekend. The gunners have a six-point advantage over the clarets but the team has the advantage of a greater goal difference. Arsenal are unlikely to try out young players in the remaining two games. Despite the campaign promising so much even in the midway positions, it will be a disastrous season for the club.

Arsenal Team News

Laurent Koscielny (Achilles tendon) and Mesut Ozil (back) are the two first-team players unavailable for Arsene Wenger.
