Leicester made it back-to-back victories last weekend with a 2-1 victory at Brentford while in midweek they progressed to the last eight of the League Cup. Eight points from their last four games has moved the Foxes up to ninth and back in the hunt for that fourth Champions League spot. At the King Power Stadium, they have lost just once in the league this season and that was against Man City.
Arsenal are unbeaten in eight in all competitions as they beat Aston Villa 3-1 last Friday in the Premier League and beat Leeds 2-0 in midweek in the League Cup. They are in tenth spot and level on points with their opponents here. Away from the Emirates, they have won just once which came at Burnley, drawing at Brighton and losing the other two.
Leicester vs Arsenal: Match Stats
Both these teams are having few problems finding the back of the net at the moment with seven of the nine Leicester league games going over 2.5 goals. Three of the last four Arsenal matches have also gone over 2.5 goals so backing this to be the score makes sense.
Youri Tielemans netted last week against Brentford which was third of the season and bookmakers have been slow to catch on to his shift in role this season. He is averaging 2.2 shots per game the second-highest in this Foxes side so backing him to score at any time looks the play.
