English Premier League

Not often Leicester start a Premier League game sitting above Arsenal and judging by current form, the Foxes have everything to pile further misery on Emery’s team.
- Leicester are unbeaten at home in Premier League this season (4 wins, 1 draw)
- Brendan Rodger’s side is the joint best defense in the league after conceding 8 goals from 11 games so far.
- The Foxes are third in the table with a six-point lead over fifth placed Arsenal.
- Emery’s men are win-less in last three Premier League games (2D, 1L).
- The Gunners haven’t won an away game since matchday one (2D, 2L).
Leicester City vs Arsenal Head-to-Head
The teams won their respective home matches in last two Premier League seasons.
All four games saw Over 2.5 goals scored, three of them recorded BTTS and Over 3.5.
The corresponding fixture at King Power Stadium was a 3-0 win for the Foxes.
Leicester City vs Arsenal Prediction
Leicester kept their good form going with a sublime 2-0 away win at Crystal Palace to make it three wins on the bounce and stay at third in the Premier League table.
Home form has been sublime for Brendan Rodgers’ men who now notched up four wins on the bounce since a goal-less stalemate with Wolves on matchday 1.
More interesting stats in the form of goal galore at King Power Stadium with each of the last four league games at this ground witnessing Over 2.5 goals. Leicester average 3 goals per game during the period netting over 1.5 in each of them.
Meantime, Arsenal are coming on the back of a 1-1 draw against Vitoria Guimaraes on midweek, stretching their win-less run in all competitions to 4 games.
Emery’s men are also win-less in their last three Premier League games across all venues, lost to newly promoted Sheffield United and drew Crystal Palace and Wolves at home.
It is inevitable to say that their Premier League campaign so far has been hot and cold, especially on the road, the Gunners drew 2 and lost 2 since a narrow 1-0 victory at Newcastle on matchday 1.
As mentioned at the start, Leicester are the team in better shape and their goal scoring prowess will be a real threat to Gunner’s defense.
However, one cannot rule out the threat offered by Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. Couple this with Leicester’s inability to keep clean sheets against quality attack, we can expect a thrilling encounter at the King Power Stadium this weekend.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 3-2 or 4-2 full-time score-line at the final whistle.
