Arsenal vs Leicester City Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Tuesday, 7 July 2020. Kick-off 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET at the Emirates Stadium.
The Foxes are placed third in the table at the moment. But they could be overtaken by the Blues this game week, as Frank Lampard’s men (who are trailing by just one point) have an easier opponent this game week.
The Gunners meanwhile are in possession of the final direct-qualification ticket to the Europa. But the Blades are just two points below them, and on top of that, they have a game in hand. Suffice it to say, a win is a must this Tuesday for both Mikel Arteta’s men as well as their counterparts.
Considering the recent form of the Gunners as well as the recent struggles of their opposite number, along with the impressive h2h run of Arteta’s men at this venue – Arsenal are expected to deliver the better performance.
However, Brendan Rodgers’s men have an insane level of competitiveness, and they are determined to finish in the podium. Moreover, they had dominated the very latest overall h2h clashes as well. Likely, expect goals from both teams.
Arsenal vs Leicester: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 2-0 win for the Foxes.
- They had also recorded a 5-0 combined scoreline from the past two games, and scored a total of nine goals from the last four match-ups.
- 16 of the preceding 19 wins had gone to their counterparts though.
- Since 2000, the hosts have won every single meeting at this stadium.
- Since 1997, the hosts have scored two or more goals in 100% of clashes at this venue, disregarding two fixtures.
Arsenal vs Leicester: Prediction
The Gunners recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against the Wolves. The win will surely be a confidence-booster, as it had come against one of their direct competitors for the Europa.
In the meantime, Rodgers’s men secured a 3-0 win at home the past game week, against Crystal Palace.
However, it needs to be noted that the Foxes were winless in nine of their preceding twelve overall match-ups, and they are winless in their latest five road trips.
They had also lost all of their h2h clashes at this venue since 2000, and have conceded two or more goals here in all of their visits, barring two games. On top of that, at present, Arteta’s men are on a four-match winning run in overall games, and they had also won ten of their former fourteen fixtures.
Moreover, they also do have a 100% unbeaten record at home, disregarding a single loss in the Europa League. Considering these factors, expect Arsenal to avoid a loss at the least.
However, note that the Foxes are in danger of losing their third spot, and with them prioritizing a Champions League ticket, a win is a must this Tuesday. In addition, they are on a two-fixture winning run against this rival, and had scored nine goals from the past four such clashes.
Taking into account these stats, expect either team to score goals this game week.
