Match Preview

Arsenal | WWLLWW

Arsenal will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 0-2 Premier League triumph against Crystal Palace.

In that match, Arsenal managed 44% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. The scorer for Arsenal was Gabriel Martinelli (20'). At the other end, Crystal Palace had 10 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Marc Guéhi (85' Own goal) scored for Crystal Palace.

It has been seldom in recent games that Arsenal have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Arsenal have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 8 goals in the process.

Leicester City | LWWDWD

Last time out, Leicester City drew 2-2 in the Premier League tie with Brentford.

In that game, Leicester City managed 55% possession and 14 shots on goal with 5 on target. For Leicester City, goals were scored by Timothy Castagne (33') and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (46'). At the other end, Brentford had 8 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. Ivan Toney (62') and Josh Dasilva (86') scored for Brentford.

Leicester City have been effective going forward leading up to this encounter, having scored 16 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Brendan Rodgers will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Leicester City have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 5 of those same games. We shall soon see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.

Going into this encounter, Leicester City are unbeaten in their previous 2 away league matches.
