Arsenal to Win

For our first Leicester vs Arsenal prediction we're backing an away win. Arsenal have won five of their last six meetings with the Foxes in all competitions, running out 4-2 winners at the Emirates earlier in the campaign. Leicester have lost two of their last five league games and now go up against the top team in the Premier League right now. Arsenal returned to winning ways last time out against Aston Villa after going four games in all competitions without a single victory.

Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score

Our second Leicester vs Arsenal prediction concerns goals scored during the 90-minutes. There is a good chance that we could be treated to at least three goals in this weekend's clash with both teams getting on the scoreboard as well as that is how two of the last four meetings between these two sides have finished. Both teams have scored and over 2.5 goals have been produced in three of Leicester's last five matches as well as in three of Arsenal's last six outings, adding further weight to our prediction.

Let's take a look at the latest markets and odds ahead of Leicester vs Arsenal.

Leicester: 4/1 (5.00) – 20%

Draw: 16/5 (4.20) – 27%

Arsenal: 3/4 (1.75) – 57.1%

*all odds provided are the best price at the time of publication and come from various bookmakers and therefore the probabilities won't always add up to 100%.

Arsenal are the clear favourite to win away at Leicester this weekend and we can't really argue with that. If you fancy backing a First Goalscorer in Saturday's match then the Arsenal duo of Saka and Nketiah are both priced at 13/2 (7.50) – 13.3%, while Odegaard has odds of 15/2 (8.50) – 11.8% but if you want to back a Leicester player to score first then Vardy is priced at 10/1 (11.00) – 9.1%.

Leicester vs Arsenal Lineups

Leicester

Leicester made the trip to Old Trafford on Sunday and ended up well beaten at the final whistle. The Foxes couldn't find a way to score and conceded two goals to Marcus Rashford and another to Sancho as they lost the game 3-0. Leicester look set to be without Evans, Bertrand and Justin this weekend due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Ward (GK), Castagne, Faes, Souttar, Kristiansen, Mendy, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Ịheanachọ & Tetê

Arsenal

Arsenal didn't have the best of starts away at Aston Villa last weekend and trailed at the break 2-1 with Saka scoring Arteta's sides goal. However, the second forty-five went the way of the Londoners with Zinchenko equalising just after the hour mark and an unfortunate own goal from Martinez making it 3-2 to Arsenal in stoppage-time. There was still time after that own goal for Martinelli to score a fourth goal for the visitors, wrapping up a 4-2 victory and taking the Gunners back to the top of the table.

Predicted Lineup: Ramsdale (GK), Gabriel, White, Saliba, Xhaka, Jorginho, Zinchenko, Ødegaard, Saka, Trossard & Nketiah

Player to Watch: Bukayo Saka

Saka top scores for the Gunners in the league this season with 9-goals and the 21-year-old is also the club's main creative force with 8-assists to his name.

The Arsenal wide-man has been in decent form in front of goal of late, netting four times in his last eight league games, and we're backing the left-footed forward to put in another top performance when Arsenal make the trip to the Midlands this weekend.

Stopping Saka is very tough, he has pace and power in abundance and can score from outside the box as well as inside, so the Leicester defenders have a tough job on their hands.
