Looking to build off of what was a stellar display over the weekend, European chasers Arsenal will welcome Leicester to the Emirates in what should be a lively contest on Tuesday night.
Picking up what could be a crucial 2-0 win away at Wolves on Saturday evening, the Gunners now find themselves enjoying a four-match winning run across all competitions and have an FA Cup semi-final on the horizon.
On the flip side, while the Foxes might have shown some worrying issues since returning from the enforced break, Leicester did land what was a rampant 3-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out.
Still sat in pole position to secure a Champions League return this summer, Tuesday’s guests should also be boosted by what is an eye-catching record against Arsenal.
Including picking up a 2-0 win when the two sides faced off earlier in the season, Leicester have landed back-to-back victories against the Gunners and a similar outcome in midweek can be found priced at 2/1 with Ladbrokes.
Arsenal turning a corner?
While Arsenal might have marked their return from the enforced break with back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Brighton, the Gunners should find the mood in their camp at a real high after their weekend performance.
Shocking many across the Premier League and picking up a 2-0 win away at top-four chasers Wolves, Mike Arteta’s side have now won their last four matchups on the bounce and are within touching distance of breaking back into the top-six.
Glad to see 18-year-old starlet BukayoSaka grab his first top-flight strike in the Midlands, Pep Guardiola’s former right-hand man will be excited by his side’s clinical showing in the final third.
Along with hitting rock-bottom Norwich for four in their last showing in North London, Tuesday’s hosts have bagged at least a pair of strikes in each of their previous four victories.
With Arteta confirming that he believes leading marksman Pierre-EmerickAubameyang will put pen to paper on a new deal this summer, you might be interested to know that the Gunners can be found priced at 1/1 with Paddy Power to score over 1.5 goals in midweek.
Vardy ends his drought
Despite failing to win any of their opening four contests when returning from the enforced break, a run that also saw them come crashing out of the FA Cup against Chelsea last month, Leicester picked up what was a much-needed morale boost over the weekend.
Still holding a three-point point buffer in the top-four and in pole position to secure a Champions League return, Head Coach Brendan Rodgers would have been glad to see Jamie Vardy end his goalscoring drought.
Bagging a brace in the Foxes’ 3-0 romp against Crystal Palace on Saturday, their leading marksman joined an exclusive list at the King Power.
Taking his overall Premier League tally to 101 with a second-half double, the 33-year-old has 21 top-flight strikes to his name this season and now sits two clear of Aubameyang in the race for the Golden Boot.
Finding the net in Leicester’s 2-0 win against the Gunners earlier in the season, the now-former England striker has remarkably bagged three goals in back-to-back meetings against Arsenal. You might be interested to know that Vardy can be found priced at 21/20 with Bet365 to extend on his tally in the capital on Tuesday.
