Arsenal vs Leicester: Predictions, Odds and Betting Tips
Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 12:30 AM
Emirates Stadium, London
Arsenal 3 – 1 Leicester
Arsenal look to keep their very impressive run going against a Leicester side that have been up and down all season.
Unai Emery was told that his new club were in crisis after two games but now he is really getting the best from his squad who have even nudged into the top four in the Premier League. The side look content – Aaron Ramsey apart – and seem to be taking on their coach’s style of play well.
Claude Puel will have more concerns about his Leicester City side who have not been able to put a good run of results together so far this season. A defeat at home to Everton just before the international break left them in mid table and it is difficult to see how that will change.
Arsene Wenger didn’t seem to think that they could play together but Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have really clicked this season and look very dangerous thanks to an impressive attacking midfield supporting cast.
A bright spot for Leicester has been the form of new boy James Maddison. A summer signing from Norwich City, the midfielder has not looked out of place in the Premier League and his fine performances have been rewarded with a call up to the England national squad. He may not be able to help stop his side losing at the Emirates though as Arsenal should win this with ease, with 2-0 a decent shout.
