Saturday Night Football in the Premier League provides action from high-flying Leicester City as they take on Arsenal at King Power Stadium.
The Foxes have been in sensational form this season, with many making comparisons with the title winning season squad and form. Brendan Rodgers is getting the best out of his players, including Jamie Vardy, who is in some of the best form we have ever seen the striker in. Leicester have only lost two games this season in all competitions, both away to Liverpool and Manchester United. With an unbeaten record so far at home, the Foxes will look to continue their record against Arsenal. A win would equal the five league wins in a row Leicester achieved under Craig Shakespeare. It would also extend the gap between Leicester and Arsenal to NINE points. Can the Foxes maintain their top four spot?
For Arsenal, patience is running thin with the fans towards Unai Emery. The successor of Arsene Wenger has struggled to take Arsenal back to a competitive level. With their fourth draw in a row on Wednesday, Arsenal’s win record under Emery is steadily decreasing. The Gunners have two wins in their last nine Premier League games, and just six in their last 18 dating back to April last season. Without the goals of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal could have been further down the table. The defensive frailties are still on show, as Arsenal have only kept one league clean sheet all season. Unai Emery has a remarkable record of never appearing in a 0-0 as Arsenal manager as he approaches his 50th league game in charge.
Leicester City (4/11* to Win): Leicester are only without long-term absentee and out-of-favour midfielder Matty James. We expect a similar, if not the same line-up as last time out for Leicester against Crystal Palace.
Arsenal (17/2* to Win): Arsenal are without Dani Ceballos after the Spaniard picked up an injury last time out. They rested a few key players during midweek, including David Luiz, Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. We expect those three to start for Arsenal, whilst Emery may go with Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Joe Willock as the midfield trio.
Anthony Martial netted the only goal in the game last time out between the sides in October.
