Two sides turning their attention back to Premier League duties after their European success in midweek, Arsenal will welcome Leicester to an empty Emirates on Sunday night.

Managing to come from behind away at Austrian outfit Rapid Wien on Thursday evening, the Gunners managed to open their Europa League campaign with a 2-1 win on foreign soil and will now have their sights set on bouncing back from their Etihad defeat last weekend.

On the flip side, while Leicester might have also managed to pick up their first European victory thanks to a routine 3-0 victory against Zorya earlier in the week, they are enduring a worrying domestic blip.

Including a 1-0 defeat against Aston Villa last time out on Premier League duties, the Foxes have suffered back-to-back top-flight defeats and might be concerned by their most recent meeting against Sunday’s guests.

Hit with a 2-0 defeat at home against Arsenal in an EFL Cup showdown last month, you might be interested to know a home victory this weekend can be found priced at 10/11 with Bet365.

Aubameyang to kick-start his campaign?

Managing to avoid what would have been a real Europa League upset earlier in the week, Arsenal managed to come from behind away at Austrian outfit Rapid Wien and Mikel Arteta will be desperate for his side to build off of that result on foreign soil.

Last seen on Premier League duties getting hit with a 1-0 defeat away at former champions Manchester City, the Gunners could be calling on attacking MVP Pierre-EmerickAubameyang to kick-start his campaign and lead their charge in North London.

While the former Borussia Dortmund striker might have carried on his remarkable Europa League tally on Thursday evening, he has failed to record a single strike in any of his last four top-flight appearances on the bounce.

However, finding the net the last time he faced off against Leicester while on Premier League duties back in July at the Emirates, you might be interested to know that the Gabon ace can be found priced at 10/11 with 888sport to get himself on the scoresheet this weekend.

Leicester’s domestic struggles

Although Leicester might have managed to pick up what was an expected Europa League victory against Zorya at the King Power on Thursday night, the Foxes have shown a string of worrying domestic issues over the past month.

Last seen on Premier League duties getting hit with a last-gasp loss at home against a high-flying Aston Villa, Brendan Rodgers’ men have now been hit with back-to-back home defeats, including that thumping 3-0 hammering at the hands of West Ham.

With attacking talisman Jamie Vardy once again missing out on their European return earlier in the week, Leicester have failed to build off of their shock victory away at the Etihad when closing September and have shown some recent issues in the final third.

In fact, Leicester have suffered consecutive Premier League home defeats without scoring for the first time since February 2017.

Also drawing a blank when they slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Sunday’s hosts on EFL Cup duties last month, the Foxes are priced at 2/1 with Betfair to draw another blank in the capital.
