Leicester City vs Arsenal Betting Preview | 9 Nov 2019

Leicester City vs Arsenal Betting Preview | 9 Nov 2019

With their sights set on securing a European return and enjoying their brightest spell since their famous title-winning campaign back in 2016, Leicester will look to keep up the party atmosphere at the King Power when Arsenal come to town on Saturday evening.

Bagging a 2-0 win away at fellow high-flyers Crystal Palace last weekend, Brendan Rodgers’ men are now in the midst of a four-match winning run across all formats and another victory on Saturday would see them once again leapfrog Manchester City to second spot.

On the flip side, while the Foxes might be in the midst of a resurge, the same can not be said for an Arsenal camp who remains incredibly fragile.

Throwing away yet another lead out at Portuguese outfit Vitoria on Thursday and having to settle for a point, the Gunners have failed to win any of their last four matches across all formats and they also hold some unpleasant memories about their previous trip to Leicestershire.

Handed a 3-0 hammering when the two sides met back in April, you might be interested to know that Leicester can be found at 21/20 with William Hill to clinch all three points this weekend.

The high-flying Foxes

Continuing to gain a long list of admirers for their eye-catching display away at Selhurst Park last time out, Leicester have firmly cemented their spot as the Premier League’s surprise package.

Handed the chance to once again leapfrog Manchester City to second spot, there is no doubt that Brendan Rodgers’ camp have their sights firmly set on securing a Champions League return this season.

The Foxes are currently pencilled in at 1/1 with Bet365 to clinch a top-four finish come May, only behind the defending champions and Liverpool with the bookmakers.

Winning each of their last four matches across all competitions, one man who has continued to spearhead Leicester’s charge this year has been the red-hot Jamie Vardy.

Once again finding the net against Crystal Palace last weekend, the now-former England international already has 11 Premier League goals and sits top of the goalscoring charts.

Bagging a brace in Leicester’s 3-0 win over Arsenal back in April and with seven goals in his last five appearances, you might be interested to know that Vardy can be found at 5/6 with Paddy Power to find the net on Saturday.

One last dance for Emery?

Throwing away a 1-0 lead out in Portugal on Thursday night, the pressure is really starting to mount on Head Coach Unai Emery and large sections of the Emirates are calling for the former PSG boss to be removed from his position.

Failing to win any of their last four matches across all formats and with Emery’s approach coming under serious scrutiny, the 48-year-old can be found at 5/2 with Coral to be the next manager hit with the boot.

Much like last season, a huge part of Arsenal’s continued issues have come down to some glaring struggles at the back.

Recording just a single clean sheet in any of their last 11 Premier League appearances they have also conceded five goals against Liverpool in their EFL Cup classic last week.

With just one top-flight clean sheet on their travels since April, you might be interested to know that the Gunners can be found at 8/11 with Paddy Power to ship over 1.5 goals at the King Power on Saturday evening.
