The opening day of the season Arsenal started without a long-time mentor Arsene Wenger, who made a decision to step down after another sloppy year.
Unai Emery took over his place but also failed to lead the team over to the Premier League leaders: now Arsenal take the fourth berth in the table to record 18 points in 8 meetings.
The team executed an excellent counter-attacking display – 19 goals in 8 games. However, they still have some evident defence problems – 10 conceded shots. Anyway, Emery’s men now appear as an unquestionable favorite against Leicester: bets for the hosts are around 1.5 to 1, and bets for away team are 6-6.5 to 1.
Last season was not the best one for Leicester City when they managed to grab the ninth spot in the Premier League, which is inconsistent with their ambitions.
Current opening season for the Foxes was also far from perfect: they are only tenth in the interim table with 12 points to their credit.
Claude Puel’s men perform quite dubiously: the team scores really a slashing number of goals – 14 shots in 8 games, but display hideous defence performance – 12 conceded shots.
Leicester are going to engage in an intriguing meeting with Arsenal being not in the best mood since earlier they gave the way to Evertone 1-2.
We predict Both to Score for Arsenal vs Leicester City to succeed:
- Arsenal have an excellent line-up in attack, therefore score so many goals.
- Leicester City also may boast the attacking skills, but defence possibilities are far being reliable.
- Last two head-to-heads ended with both teams having scored some really good points.
We’ll see a spectacular clash beyond any doubt. Both teams will certainly score goals in each others gates and not even once.
