Leicester vs Arsenal: Premier League preview


A

resurgent Arsenal travel to Leicester on Saturday lunchtime, buoyed by a recent run of good form that has seen Mikel Arteta’s side go unbeaten in eight games.

In what has been one of the most promising weeks of Arteta’s reign in charge of the club, the manner of their performance during last Friday night’s win at home against Aston Villa spoke of a team growing in stature.

For their part, Leicester haven’t looked entirely convincing. Having already conceded on 15 occasions in the league thus far, an Arsenal attack to have scored at least twice in their last four outings across all competitions must be licking their lips.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Leicester vs Arsenal is scheduled for a 12.30pm BST kick-off on Saturday October 30, 2021.

The match will take place at the King Power Stadium in Leicester.

Leicester vs Arsenal team news

Luckily for Arsenal, Ben White is expected to be fit for the game after being substituted with illness during Tuesday’s win over Leeds in the Carabao Cup.

Arteta also hopes that Martin Odegaard, Pablo Mari and Kieran Tierney will return, though Granit Xhaka remains sidelined.

Jamie Vardy is available for Leicester after returning to training, but the Foxes are still without Wilfred Ndidi, Wesley Fofana, Marc Albrighton and James Justin.

Leicester vs Arsenal prediction

With Leicester shipping goals this season and Arsenal looking prolific, as well as rigid in defence, it’s not hard to imagine the away side running out winners in what would be a big statement.
