Leicester City vs Arsenal: Predictions
Brendan Rodgers’ side will be hoping to bounce back after their disappointing exit from the Europa League during the week after falling to Slavia Prague in a 2-0 second-leg defeat. However, Rodgers will now be able to put all of his focus on the league now with no more midweek Europa League games to consider.
Arsenal fought back to claim their place in the last 16 of the Europa League in a dramatic 3-2 victory against Benfica in their second-leg clash. However, the Gunners have slipped to 11th spot in the league after only picking up one win in their last five.
The Foxes sit pretty in third place, joint on points with Manchester United in second and Rodgers’ side has only one defeat to their name in the league since early December. The return of Jamie Vardy has boosted the side but they are expected to be without star midfielder James Maddison.
Arsenal’s recent form has meant they have failed to capitalise on their local rivals Spurs who are struggling themselves but the Gunners have struggled defensively with only one clean sheet in their last nine games across all competitions.
Leicester City vs Arsenal: Match Stats
Leicester fans will be looking for a response from their side following the shock 2-0 home defeat to Prague on Thursday. Recent history is in the favour of the Foxes as their visitors have not won in their last three league trips to Leicestershire and enter this game having won six out of sevens times immediately after their Europa League games.
Arsenal have been boosted in recent weeks by the return to goalscoring form by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who netted his first Premier League hat-trick against Leeds just two weeks ago. The Gabon-international netted twice on Thursday in the victory over Benfica and the 31-year-old will be expected to add to his tally on Sunday at the King Power Stadium.
