Arsenal will be aiming to leapfrog Leicester City in the Premier League table when the sides meet at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Leicester began the campaign with three victories in a row, including a 5-2 drubbing of Manchester City, but have lost their last two – both to nil.
Having won nine and lost none of their last 11 league matches on home turf, they are 10/11 (1.91) favourites with bet365 to move clear with a victory here.
However, Brendan Rodgers’ men have come out on top in three of the previous five league meetings against this opposition and can be backed at 14/5 (3.80) to do so once again in this one.
The last encounter between this pair at this ground resulted in a 1-1 draw back in July, and you can get odds of 11/4 (3.75) on them sharing the spoils once again.
Rob Holding, Pablo Mari, and Calum Chambers are all ruled out, while Willian, Dani Ceballos, and Reiss Nelson are doubtful.
Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Pereira, Daniel Amartey, and Wilfried Ndidi remain sidelined, although Jamie Vardy could be back in action following injury.
Having failed to score in their last two league matches, the Foxes will be desperate to have Vardy back in action for the trip to the capital.
However, it is hard to back them even should their top scorer return to action considering they have only won twice in 10 league games on the road, while Mikel Arteta’s team is a force to be reckoned with in their own back yard.
Indeed, Arsenal proved too strong for Leicester when they met at the King Power Stadium just a month ago in the Carabao Cup, and look well worth the 10/11 (1.91) odds to extend their strong home record with another victory in this one.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
