Two top-half hopefuls go head to head this weekend in the Premier League. Arsenal play host to Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday. The match kickoffs at 7:15 pm.
Both sides will be heading into the match after coming from successful wins in the Europa League last Thursday night. Their last encounters in the Premier League ended in straight defeats to Manchester City and Aston Villa.
Brendan Rodger’s side has a poor record against Arsenal at home. Their last win against the Gunners dates back to 1973. It counts a straight record of 27 visits to Highbury and Emirates, resulting in 20 defeats.
The Foxes have played many away Premier League matches against Arsenal without ever winning than any other opponent in the league. Before their recent 1-1 draw, the side struggled with 12 losses.
Artera will feel motivated to welcome Brendan Rodgers to the Emirates. Their last encounter saw the Gunners edge out Leicester in the Carabao Cup in a dramatic 2-0 loss. Despite sitting below their opponents in the table after five games, Arteta has the upper hand when it comes to injuries.
The Gunners are confident heading into the match with nine wins in their last 11 games with only one loss. The last time the side dropped points in the league was against Leicester in July.
