Leicester vs Arsenal Prediction & Analysis
Leicester recorded a 1-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Brentford. They are also on a three-game winning run, and only once have they lost in their last seven fixtures.
Going on, they have been completely unbeaten at home, save for their defeat against Manchester City, and they also happen to be the only team they have failed to score at home in league games, this whole year.
On the other hand, Arsenal had registered a 3-1 win at home against Aston Villa, and then they followed it up with a 2-0 win at home against Leeds.
Moreover, they had scored two or more goals in five of the past six games, and after their slow start, they have now climbed to the tenth spot. In addition, they need a surplus of just three points to get to the top-four.
Judging these observations, as well as past h2h stats, expect a high-scoring affair this Saturday.
