Arsenal vs Leicester City
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 22nd October 2018
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium, London.
The Emirates stadium will be full to capacity as the Gunners host the Foxes for the ninth round English Premier League fixtures this Monday night.
Arsenal is currently enjoying an excellent performance after six consecutive outright EPL wins. This has seen them settle in the 4th place of the league standings with 18 points.
After losing their first 2 opening matches of the season, the Gunners have put together a fantastic run of 6 straight wins.
They managed to hammer the Cottagers with 5 goals to 1 just before the international break. This home fixture is a great chance for the Gunners to continue their unbeaten streak.
Unai has not yet cleared the doubt concerning the return of Petr Cech in this matchup. Danny Welbeck is back in training after a minor injury during his engagement in England’s squad during the international break.
Leicester failed to secure a win at home against Everton before the international break. This was a huge backward slide after impressive wins against Huddersfield and Newcastle United.
This will definitely be a hard game for them since they will be facing a fierce and stronger side.
The Foxes will be without Demarai Gray and Matty James who are both sidelined due to injury. Moreover, Wes Morgan will be on the bench as he serves a two-match ban.

Arsenal vs Leicester City: Prediction
Arsenal will take advantage of the fact that they are playing at their home ground. This will compel them to impress their fans at home by bagging 3 points at the end of the match.
With their current team form, they should get a victory in this home game.
On the other hand, Leicester will aim to sustain their superb performance against the Gunners. However, they are not having a good away performance of late and may not achieve this.
It is possible for both teams to score in this one since Arsenal has been very vulnerable to concede this season.
