Check a complete match preview and betting prediction for tonight’s match.
Arsenal still dreams about a place in Premier League’s top-4
Arsenal’s recent success put the team closer to the league’s top-4. After 2 consecutive losses in Premier League’s return, the Gunners were able to bounce back with 3 consecutive wins. The team scored 8 goals and didn’t concede during that span. The 2-0 win against Wolverhampton last round tells how good the team has been performing lately.
Arsenal lost just 3 Premier League games at the Emirates and won the last four.
Arteta will not have Chambers, Leno, Pablo Mari and Martinelli available for tonight. Mesut Ozil is expected to remain out of the team.
Arsenal predicted lineup
Martinez, Bellerin, Mustafi, David Luiz, Kolasinac, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Leicester lost the last 9 away games against Arsenal
A cruel tradition for Leicester. The team was performing well above expectations this season, being second for quite some time in the Premier League. However, the Foxes couldn’t keep their good performances, especially after the break.
With just one win since the return of the competition, Leicester will now have to fight hard to stay in league’s top-4.
The Foxes have the second-best defensive record in the league and the third-best offensive record playing away from the King Power Stadium. With 21 goals, Jamie Vardy leads the league’s top-scoring list and he’s Leicester’s primary weapon for tonight’s match. If Leicester loses tonight, the team can finish the round outside the top-4.
Brendan Rodgers has important players unavailable for tonight. Chilwell, Maddison and Ricardo Pereira are all out injured. Amartey and Ayoze Perez are also recovering from injuries.
Leicester predicted lineup
Schmeichel, Justin, Evans, Soyuncu, Fuchs, Ndidi, Tielemans, Praet, Barnes, Iheanacho, Vardy.
Arsenal are living a good moment and a win tonight can put the team well in the hunt for an european spot. Leicester has very important players unavailable and that reduces their chances. We expect Arsenal to win tonight!
