Week 7 of the Premier League brings forward a tempting match that will take place on the grounds of King Power Stadium. The Foxes will make an attempt to make Arsenal’s stay on the field as rough as possible with no respect to their world renowned reputation.
Leicester performed pretty well and they showed they can adapt to the opponent’s playstyle and even dictate the tempo of the game according to their will. On the other hand, Arsenal suffered tough losses on their last two matches and 3 points on this away match seems like their only option. However, one thing is for sure, we’re going to see an exciting match on Saturday.
The tenacious Leicester City in the last 5 matches has a result of 2 wins and 3 draws, including the cup matches against fierce competitors. Their start in this season of the Premier League is probably the best in recent history with being on the 4th place, 1 place ahead of their upcoming opponent.
If they manage to overthrow their guest on Saturday the 3rd place on the table is reserved for them. Being among the top performing teams in the Premier League is certainly a huge confidence boost for them and they will put super-human effort to become the better of the two teams. This must be considered as a crucial factor. In addition to this their top scorer Riyiad Mahrez will be a part of the team on Saturday. He’s Premier League’s top scorer at the moment topping the list with 5 goals. We’ve seen how Leicester crushed Aston Villa with 3 late goals coming back from a 0:2 result. The Leicester squad can certainly surprise us all.
Maybe Leicester’s outstanding results are due to the schedule of the Premier League. They still haven’t encountered any of England’s titans. With the Gunners being their next opponent their overall capabilities will be put to the test.
Injured: Matthew James, Nathan Dyer.
The Gunners had a turbulent start of the season both in the Premier League and in other competitions as well. The devastating loss on their away match with Dinamo Zagreb was a hard blow for their morale before the encounter with Chelsea. They were crushed on both occasions. However, they managed to go home with a victory after the match with Tottenham. It seems like they can finally get a hold on themselves and start winning those crucial 3 points.
A lot is on the line for Arsenal considering they are the favorites in this match. Although they seem to be overwhelmingly better than Leicester the numbers are not in their favor. We are totally aware of Arsenal’s inconsistent results, they can be vicious when playing against top tier teams and yet when they’re playing with some underdog they fail to deliver what their fans expect.
Their strikers haven’t showed their best yet, nor can we compliment on their defense. With only 5 goals scored and their net shaken 5 times as well it’s difficult to imagine that this team is one of England’s finest. However, it’s too early to make any general assumptions for the rest of the season. On Saturday they have a tough game to play.
Injured: Jack Wilshere, Danny Welbeck, Tomas Rosicky, Francis Coquelin.
On one side we have Leicester, a brilliant underdog that can catch its opponent off-guard. On the other side there’s Arsenal whose fame precedes them. If we consider the current table situation we can confidently assume it’s going to be a tough match with a lot of emotions and goals scored on both ends. Arsenal’s inconsistent defense gives us the right to predict Leicester will score with the Premier League’s top scorer being the most probable candidate.
Nonetheless, Arsenal is known for making games interesting. The dynamic playstyle they worship usually results with a lot of goals on their side too. It’s easier to predict the number of goals than who will be victorious on King Power Stadium.
We’re going with a prediction both teams to score and over 2.5 goals. The odds average around 1.95 or 20/21. We expect to see at least two goals scored by Arsenal and one on Leicester side. Arsenal’s mistakes will not go unpunished.
In the past whenever these teams had an encounter it ended with a draw with both teams scoring. This match shouldn’t be an exception to that rule. All factors point to that direction.
