Live in-play betting – 

Defending champions Leicester City visit Arsenal at the Emirates with one thing in mind, to try and cause a major upset.

Liverpool’s loss to Crystal Palace has blown the top four race open, and Arsenal will feel they still have an outside chance of getting into the top 4.

If they can win their remaining matches beginning with this encounter, that dream might just come true.

Arsenal are currently 7th in the league, 7 points behind 4th place Manchester City, who have played 1 game more.

They are also 9 points behind 3rd placed Liverpool, but they can topple the Reds if they can win their 3 outstanding matches with high goal margins.

The Gunners have won 2 of their last 3 home games in the league, the other ending in a draw.

Leicester City will consider themselves safe from relegation this season, but they saw their impressive five game winning streak ended in cruel fashion when Everton defeated them 4-2 three weeks ago.

Since then, they have failed to win any of their last 3 games in all competitions including a loss that saw them crash out of the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

Leicester City have earned only 4 points from their last 8 away games.

They drew their last away match against in-form Crystal Palace which may be sign that they are back in form.
