Arsenal will be keen to bounce back in the Premier League after last week’s notorious loss against the cheats from Chelsea, but have not been given the easiest of games today against an unbeaten Leicester side.
Claudio Ranieri has got his squad performing brilliantly and are currently two points ahead of the Gunners and are joint top in the goalscoring charts with 13 along with West Ham. Arsenal have scored 5 and conceded 5 in their first six League games. Leicester have scored in every match this season, but have also failed to keep a clean sheet either. But history is definitely on Arsenal’s side as Leicester have not beaten Wenger’s men in 17 games spanning the last 20 years.
It is also a fact that Ranieri has only beaten Arsenal once in 14 attempts, and he is unhappy that his team have had to fight back after conceding first lately. “Coming back from behind might be exciting, but it is not good. I would prefer to get in front and try to stay there.” He told the BBC.
“It’s not easy to score goals when you go behind in matches. We must concentrate and be more careful because I think to beat Arsenal we must play the perfect match, and also have some very good luck.
“Arsene Wenger can put Alexis Sanchez in goal and Petr Cech up front and Arsenal will still have a great team.”
Arsenal will be without Gabriel and Coquelin, but Mertesacker is back and Wednesday’s hero Matthieu Flamini is likely to get the DM role, so it will be a very strong side. I am sure Walcott will be chosen ahead of floundering Giroud…
Predicted Line Up:
Monreal – Kosciely – Mertesacker – Bellerin
Cazorla – Flamini
Ramsey – Ozil – Cech
I know that Leicester are no pushovers, but our players are getting stronger every weak. I’m going with history and reckon the Gunners will find their scoring boots and win 3-1
