Leicester vs Arsenal
Arsenal’s problems away from home are now common knowledge and they face another tricky Premier League test when visiting Leicester on Sunday.
The Gunners lost at King Power Stadium last season and return there on a run of eight defeats in 14 road trips in all competitions.
We’re taking 7/4 for that travel sickness to strike again, with the Foxes fancied to prevail in our opening Leicester vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester could still challenge for seventh place and a possible spot in next season’s Europa League after a 2-2 draw at West Ham made it 16 points in eight games.
City twice came from behind at London Stadium, with Jamie Vardy and a stoppage-time effort from Harvey Barnes earning them a share of the spoils.
Brendan Rodgers, who only took over the Foxes in February, said: “My job, my objective when I came here, was to look to try and challenge for a European place.
“It may be too soon for us this summer, we’ve only been together a short period of time and it would be nice to get a pre-season.
“But whenever it comes, we’ll accept it and embrace it – and it’s hopefully something we can do in my time here.”
Vardy has scored three times in as many games against the Gunners and 4/1 for him to break the deadlock stands out from the Leicester vs Arsenal odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Evans, Pereira, Maguire, Gray, Maddison, Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Vardy.
Leicester will have an unchanged squad. Daniel Amartey (ankle) remains out and unlikely to play again until next season, while Matty James still lacks fitness.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal’s away-day woes continued to hamper their hopes of securing a top-four finish when Wolves beat them 3-1 at Molineux on Wednesday.
Ruben Neves, Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota all netted before the break and the Gunners could only respond via a late Sokratis Papastathopoulos header.
Unai Emery said: “We didn’t recover quickly enough from their first goal, but in the second half we had recovered our game plan and we were better.
“We needed to be more calm and try to impose ourselves on them, but they were better than us and were more strong in their game plan.”
Arsenal have now tasted defeat on six of their 10 Premier League road trips since mid-December, despite scoring in eight of those matches.
Let’s finish off our Leicester vs Arsenal betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 2-1 home victory.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Papastathopoulos, Koscielny, Monreal, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Torreira, Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, Xhaka, Lacazette.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a doubt for Arsenal due to a sinus procedure. Denis Suarez (groin) will also be assessed, while Aaron Ramsey (hamstring) and long-term absentees Danny Welbeck (ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) are out.
West Ham 2-2 LEICESTER – Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes
