Leicester v Arsenal Betting Preview, Odds & Tips

  • Venue: King Power
  • Channel: Sky Sports

Did punters see Arsenal being turned over in the week by Wolves and beaten 3-1? Some commentators have suggested who wants fourth place sarcastically as Manchester United and Arsenal appear to be slipping points in a wobble.

The Foxes are still able to snatch 7th position as their highest possible finish, which would get them a place in Europe next term and could spark a shock as a side seemingly with the greater need. Of course Arsenal have in their mindset the winner of the Europa League will be promoted into the Champions League next sessions.  This will not only help their status but get them back to a competition they have been regulars in for a number of seasons.

Team News

Daniel Amartey is out of the side, where Wes Morgan missed out also due to a family issue, but is set to return.

The news wire suggests Harvey Barnes could step in to the starting eleven.

Confirmed absentees are Holding, Welbeck, Bellerin, Ramsey and  Suarez with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missig the 3-1 loss midweek, and may return.

Unai Emery could name Mustafi ahead of Ozil and revert to a more defensive set up.

Potential Leicester Starting XI: Schmeichel, Perieria, Morgan, Magire, Chilwell, Maddison, Ndidi, Tielemans, Barnes, Vardy and Gray

Potential Arsenal Starting XI: Leno, Mustafi, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Torriera, Maitland-niles, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi and Lacazette

The Verdict

Arsenal would have got the grilling in the dressing room after a heavy loss to Wolves 3-1 in the week. Leicester will feel the Arsenal side are rattled and a potential to take the game. The Gunners however will know only points here can stabilise the side into looking to secure 4th spot as a minimum. Leicester are in the chase for 7th place, so all is to play for as implied with the match odds.

You have to account that the Gooners have won just two in five on the road, with the hosts seemingly able to hang with the bigger sides in the league. Leicester have lost a few more than they would have liked this term at the King Power. However, three wins in the last five can give some momentum.

I liked the consideration for both to score, although the 1/2 did not inspire in respect of a tip. However the enhanced price of both to net and the game to see three or more goals in the game at Bet365’s 5/6 s possibly the angle here.

With Leicester with lessor pressure to The Gunners leaves them vulnerable under attack. Arsenal will thrive under the pressure and will need to see goals in the process rather than a stalemate. With the visiting side seeing 11/16 games over 2.5 goals, there is a sporting chance here percentage wise.
