Brendan Rodgers’s tactical nous has shone through at Leicester City since his arrival at the King Power stadium, with his team currently lying in third on the league standings and are now favourites to finish in the top four this season.

Following their 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace last weekend, their fourth successive win in all competitions, the Foxes come into this one six points clear of their fifth-placed rivals and an eighth league triumph could well be in the offing, particularly with the team’s hitman Jamie Vardy firing on all cylinders.

Arsenal’s season have gone from bad to worse, and took yet another hit when they conceded in stoppage time to Vitoria de Guimares in their Europa league midweek game.

That draw ensured the Gunners have let slip a lead for the fourth consecutive game and face what already looks a difficult task on paper here. They have now won just two of their last nine league matches and under fire manager Unai Emery seeks to get the best out of his floundering team starting from this one.

Betting preview

This game have all the trappings to produce fireworks. A free-flowing, vibrant attack up against a lax and hesitant defence is almost certain to guarantee goals and it is no surprise the market offer for over 2.5 is short at a price of 8/13.

But if you delve into the correct score markets, we might get great value with a Leicester win, if their rude form of late is anything to go by.

Leicester last beat Arsenal 3-0 here, while they also managed a 3-1 win at this venue in 2018. While it will be hard betting against the Gunners not finding the net at least once, a correct score of 3-1 in Leicester’s favour cannot be more enticing, and at a price of 15/1 is pretty great.
