Leicester and Arsenal to put on a show
Leicester City are probably ever man’s second team following the 2015-16 miracle season. Can they repeat the feat by upsetting the odds again? Have a read of our preview here:
Things you love to see
If you can’t remember where you were when Leicester City officially won the Premier League title then you haven’t lived. It was the moment that hope returned to football fans right across the country and especially so for those toiling to finishing anywhere between 17th and 5th every season.
Sides like West Ham, Everton and Wolves will know that one season of excellent recruitment in which other big clubs don’t quite hit full throttle, could see them bag the biggest prize in English football. Leicester are highly unlikely to repeat their miracle season this year given the form of both Liverpool and Manchester City, but they can dream of finishing in the top-four especially with Tottenham, Man United and Chelsea not at their best not to mention Arsenal.
They have a nice balance and are seeing their forwards hitting the back of the net on a regular basis which gives them a platform to win games of football.
Vardy is the first player to score 10 Premier League goals this season - the last time he was the first player to reach 10 in a season was in 2015-16, when they went on to win the league.
The form of the former Fleetwood striker is great to see and he has certainly enjoyed his time under Brendan Rodgers so far. Vardy has hit 19 goals since the former Celtic boss took charge – five more than any other player.
With Leicester in great form – winning five of the last six and keeping a clean-sheet in three of them – this is a perfect time for them to take on Arsenal.
Unai Emery a disaster for the Gunners
When murmurs from the crowd suggest that the Gunners were better keeping Arsene Wenger in charge, you know things are not going well. That is not a slight against the former Arsenal manager, but nearly everyone had come around to the thinking that his time was up when he did finally leave.
With Emery’s side managing just two wins in the last nine games, it is fair to say that the supporters are not happy. The Gunners may not be losing many but they are six points outside the top-four and also six behind the Foxes heading into this one.
Leicester vs. Arsenal Betting Tip
Neither of these sides are goal shy so backing this one to finish with over 2.5 goals at odds of 4/7 is our pick here.
