Leicester vs Arsenal: Foxes ‘can pile more misery’ on Emery



During Leicester’s 2015/16 title winning season the Foxes amassed 22 points from their opening 11 league games.

Fast forward four years and they’re a point better off at the same stage of the season. Unfortunately for them Liverpool are flying and any hopes of a second Premier League title are pretty slim.

That said, victory over Arsenal on Saturday teatime would lift Brendan Rodgers’ side up to second.

Things couldn’t be going much better for Rodgers, the same can’t be said for Unai Emery who is under serious pressure to bring Champions League football back to the Emirates.

Six points off the top four. One Premier League win in five. A defence leaking goals for a fun. The Granit Xhaka saga.

And an inability to hold onto a lead, you wouldn’t trust this lot to walk your dog. The problems are piling up.

Four games on the bounce the Gunners have taken the lead, but failed to see the game out. It’s 6/1 for Leicester to come from behind and draw.

Most Arsenal fans will tell you Emery hasn’t improved Arsenal one bit, and to be honest they’re not wrong.

The only positive is new captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has 9 goals to his name, with four of those coming away from home.

He’s 8/5 to score anytime.

Jamie Vardy is the Premier League’s current top goal scorer and he’s scored in each of Leicester’s last two wins over the Gunners. The former England striker is 10/3 to open the scoring.

The Foxes were 3-0 winners the last time these two sides met in Leicester and it’s 19/1 for the hosts to win by the same scoreline.

Leicester’s home form this season is close to perfection.

They’ve dropped just two points all season at the King Power Stadium and that was in their opening game of the season against Wolves.

Add to that Arsenal’s poor away record then it’s hard to look past the Foxes to bag all three points, they’re evens to do exactly that. The draw is 14/5 and so too are Arsenal.
