Leicester City are fresh off Europa League elimination at the hands of Slavia Prague. The disappointment will be high around the King Power Stadium after a poor, scoreless display over the course of 180 minutes against the Czech team. Slavia Prague went through thanks to a 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night. Now, Brendan Rodgers must dust off his team and prepare them for a big Premier League clash against Arsenal at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
The Foxes are unbeaten in four straight Premier League games against the Gunners. Their last two matches in the league at the King Power Stadium finished in wins. Confidence will be high especially with Arsenal losing three of their last four games in the league.
Unlike Leicester City, Arsenal are coming off of a Europa League last 32 second leg win. They defeated Benfica 3-2 in the second leg with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang popping up to preserve the team’s hopes of going deep in the competition. Now, Mikel Arteta aims to get his side winning games in the league, which has been difficult to do.
Arsenal are coming off of a 1-0 home loss to Manchester City and are winless in four of their last five Premier League matches. Can they get an away win against Leicester City?
Leicester City vs Arsenal Betting Odds
Leicester City took 11 points from their last 18 on offer in the league and have won back-to-back matches against Liverpool and Aston Villa. The Foxes got timely goals in both fixtures to claim all three points in the race for the top four.
Leicester City go into matchday 26 in third place and six points above fifth-placed Chelsea. Rodgers’ team capitulated in the second half of last season and failed to make the Champions League. With no more Europa League football, the Foxes can now focus their attention on making the top four.
Leading sportsbooks have Leicester City at odds of 31/20 to win at home for a third straight game against Arsenal. They have taken 19 points from 36 possible at home in the division. Arsenal go into matchday 26 at odds of 19/10 to win according to leading sportsbooks. The Gunners are on a two-game losing streak away from the Emirates courtesy of losses to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa. The Gunners were outscored 3-1 during those two games.
The reverse fixture between these sides at the Emirates ended in a 1-0 win for Leicester City. Jamie Vardy’s 80th-minute goal gave Leicester City the victory in a closely contested game. Arsenal are 11th in the Premier League and nine points off of fifth-placed Chelsea ahead of the weekend. It is unlikely that Arteta will get them into Europe through league position. The teams are at odds of 49/20 to end the match in a draw.
Leicester City vs Arsenal Team News
Arteta goes into the game with just one injury and that is to defender Rob Holding. He could return to the team this weekend following a concussion. The manager could have a problem with fatigue to his key players. The Gunners played a must-win, high-intensity game against Benfica in midweek away in Greece.
Due to travel restrictions to and from England, Arsenal’s home game was played in Greece. The travel could play a part on player fatigue as Leicester City’s midweek Europa League match was played at home.
Rodgers has six players on the injury list ahead of the weekend. James Maddison is a doubt to play due to a groin injury. He suffered the issue in the days leading up to the team’s Europa League second leg match versus Slavia Prague and played no part in the midweek fixture. Reports this week claim that Arsenal should/are looking into the signing of Maddison. The midfielder is having a good season at the King Power Stadium and one of his most consistent yet.
Dennis Praet is still ruled out until April. Defender Wesley Fofana is on the sidelines until next month with a thigh injury. Ayoze Perez and James Justin are also ruled out with the latter finished for the season. Defender Wes Morgan is also ruled out with a lower back injury suffered a month ago.
Leicester City vs Arsenal Predictions
Both teams to score: YES @3/4 - BET NOW
Leicester City have been good against Arsenal in recent Premier League meetings, but how will the disappointment of Thursday night’s Europa League elimination affect this team? Four of the last eight matches in all competitions between these clubs finished with both teams scoring goals. Leicester City’s last two Premier League games ended with both teams finding the back of the net.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score anytime @9/5 - BET
Is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starting to warm up? The truth is that the striker has been a massive disappointment since signing a new mega-contract at the Emirates in the lead up to this season. He now has 13 goals in all competitions under his belt. Eight of those goals have come in the league. He scored twice in the Europa League last 32 second leg versus Benfica on Thursday night and has the hot hand.
Over 2.5 goals scored @1/1 - BET NOW
Four of the last eight meetings between these clubs ended with over 2.5 goals. With the way both are scoring and conceding goals at the moment, there is the chance that over 2.5 goals will be tallied when they meet on Sunday.
Three of Leicester City’s last five games in the league, including their last two matches, ended with more than 2.5 goals tallied. Three of Arsenal’s last six games in the Premier League finished with over 2.5 goals tallied. Their midweek Europa League win over Benfica also saw more than 2.5 tallies. The Gunners won that fixture 3-2.
Can Leicester City rebound following the disappointment of Thursday night? That loss to Slavia Prague could open the door for them to slide down the table and drop points. The race for the top four is competitive with nine points separating Leicester City and seventh-place Everton. Sunday’s game will have major implications on the race for Champions League qualification.
