Don’t underestimate Arsenal as they face the high flying Foxes.
Arsenal travels to the King Power Stadium looking to end their recent poor run of form and it promises to be one of the toughest tests they have faced this season.
Unai Emery’s side has had their season disrupted by a lack of form, an unhappy fan base and internal strife with Granit Xhaka being stripped of the captaincy.
Arsenal comes into this fixture after another underwhelming performance away at Vitoria in the Europa League midweek. While Emery didn’t field his best players in that game, a win would have helped to lift the mood around the Emirates. It certainly would have given their confidence a boost ahead of the clash with Leicester tomorrow.
After winning six of eight games, Arsenal head into this match with no win in their last three Premier League matches. They have taken the lead in their last two league games yet ended up dropping two points.
Away from home, Arsenal have not won any of their last four league games. They have, however, lost only two of those games and could get at least a point here as well.
Leicester City are in fine form ahead of this clash. Brendan Rodgers has done a great job and his team now sit third in the Premier League and looking like a formidable force once again.
The Foxes have won their last four games in all competitions and will be confident of securing all three points on Saturday evening.
However, it has to be remembered that Arsenal drew 2-2 with Tottenham, held Man Utd at Old Trafford beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 on their ground and despite all the negativity surrounding the club, does have a very good squad.
I say this in almost every preview and it remains true, if the players play to their true abilities and Unai Emery gets his team, tactics and formation right then they will win.
I understand why many Arsenal fans are nervous ahead of this game and rightfully so but there are also good reasons to be positive, as an example, the results I mentioned earlier.
I can see the lads coming away from Leicester with something, most likely a draw but I would not rule out a win either.
Predicted Score 1-1
