Arsenal vs Leicester City Preview

Arsenal vs Leicester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Emirates Stadium

Date: 22nd October 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Arsenal continued their ascension towards the top of the Premier League table just before the international break by thrashing Fulham 5-1.

That result helped them to reach 4th in the league table and all but banish the memories of back to back losses they suffered at the start of the season.

The Gunners have also impressed in the Europa League after winning their first two group games, while progress in the Carabao Cup has also been secured.

They come into this game off the back of a 9-game winning streak in all competitions, and they will be full of confidence ahead of this game against the Foxes here.

Leicester City may have been beaten by Everton just before the international break, but Claude Puel’s men are one of the most consistent scorers in the Premier League this season.

They have scored in all 8 of their 8 league games so far despite having played against the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.

The last time the Foxes failed to score was at the beginning of May, and that should bother Unai Emery.

Arsenal have kept just 3 clean sheets in their 11 competitive games this season and that should excite the likes of Jamie Vardy.

Vardy has scored 6 times in his last 6 games against the Gunners, and he has a reputation for showing up in big games having scored 27 goals in 46 games against the top 6 teams.

Bookmakers make Arsenal strong odds-on favourites to come out on top while goal markets suggest this will be a high-scoring Monday night football match.
