Leicester vs Arsenal prediction
The Foxes have won their last 4 games in all competitions, including Premier League wins against Manchester United and Brentford. Life under Mikel Arteta is starting to look promising for Arsenal, with the Gunners unbeaten in their last 8 games.
Both teams enter the game confident having each won midweek Carabao Cup fixtures to continue respective runs of good form.
As is often the case, Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will have a large say on the result. Vardy has scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal – 11 in total – than he has against any other side. He sits second only to Wayne Rooney (12 goals) for the most Premier League goals against the Gunners.
Arsenal lost just once in 24 matches against Leicester City between 1995 and 2017, 22 of which were Premier League games which Arsenal either won or drew. The single loss came in a January 2000 FA Cup fourth round replay which the Foxes won 6-5 on penalties.
Things have tightened up since then, with the Foxes winning 4 of the last 7 Premier League meetings while in the last 5 matches across all competitions, both teams have won twice and shared a draw.
If history is anything to go by, a winner will be found. Only 5 of 21 meetings between these teams this century have been draws. We'll back the home team in a game that's almost too hard to split.
