Arsenal v Leicester Betting Tips & Predictions

Arsenal are aiming to build on an impressive opening weekend win when they face Leicester at the Emirates on Saturday.

Leicester blew a two-goal lead at home to Brentford last weekend and continue to see some of their key players linked with moves away. 

Looking for their first victory of the new campaign, Brendan Rodgers’ side head to north London with some positive recent memories, having taken four points from their last three matches away to Arsenal. 

Both Teams To Score: Yes 

5/6 (888Sport)

Norwich, Watford and Leeds were the only teams to keep fewer clean sheets than Leicester in 2021-22. The Foxes were also seventh in expected goals, and their attack proved to be in decent form with a couple of goals last weekend. 

Arsenal’s defence was solid against Palace, but their back line was porous towards the end of last season. The Gunners didn’t keep a clean sheet in their final 10 league matches. 

Leicester are inherently attacking and will create chances. Both teams to score represents good value at this price. 

Anytime goalscorer: Jamie Vardy

14/5 (Sportingindex)

Arsenal simply cannot stop Jamie Vardy. The former England international has 11 goals in 14 appearances against the Gunners. 

While Mikel Arteta’s side are more disciplined defensively than previous sides, they will still be vulnerable to Vardy’s pace on the break.

Vardy to score anytime is a no-brainer. 

Winning Margin: Score Draw

5/1 (Bet365)

Goals are pretty much guaranteed when Leicester are involved. The Foxes often up their game against the top teams, which was demonstrated last season by taking points off Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea. 

Just six teams drew more matches than Leicester in 2021-22, and only one of their 10 draws was scoreless. 

Draws have been rare between these sides over the last few seasons, which contributes to the 5/1 price on a score draw. Leicester, of course, are coming off a 2-2 last Sunday, however, and have the players to get something from the Emirates.
