Monday, April 29th, 2019 @3:00 pm
King Power Stadium, Leicester
Arsenal’s stuttering away form will be severely tested as Leicester City’s stars aim to show Brendan Rodgers they are worthy of being part of the squad for next season.
Leicester City will have a major say in the direction of the Premier League title and the battle for the top four.
The Foxes final three Premier League games this season sees them take on Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea and Brendan Rodgers is no doubt well aware it could be his charges who hand the title to his former club.
However, that will be an after thought as building his own legacy at Leicester is the priority after leaving Celtic to take the Foxes hotseat at the end of February.
Since then, performances and results have seen a remarked improvement over his predecessor Claude Puel and after a difficult season, there is light at the end of the tunnel once more.
That makes them a serious threat to Arsenal’s top four hopes especially as Unai Emery’s side’s away form is less than impressive.
22 points collected on the road leaves Arsenal ninth in the away table when just away games are taken into account, proving that the Gunners are reliant on results at the Emirates. That is also reflected in the odds with popular sportsbooks making the pair evenly matched for the win.
That makes backing a draw where the value in this game lies and as two of the last four meetings between the two at Leicester’s King Power has resulted in a stalemate. Going for 2-2 in this game makes perfect sense especially as neither have been shy in front of goal recently.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score first or last
Arsenal’s star striker has netted three times in his two games against the Foxes, making him the best bet with online betting sites to grab at least a fourth in three in this game.
Over 3.5 goals
The last three meetings between the two has seen four or more goals scored and the pair are showing no signs of slowing down this season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck a double in the reverse fixture to hand the Gunners a 3-1 victory back in October.
However, the Gunners’ last trip to the King Power did not go to plan as it was the home side who ran out 3-1 winners thanks to a Jamie Vardy penalty and late Riyad Mahrez strike on the 9th May 2018.
