Leicester vs Arsenal prediction comes before the 12th Premier League round matchup. This game will be played on Saturday, November 9th, at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, England. In this match preview, you’ll find some useful betting tips and correct score predictions based on a thorough analysis of these two teams.
Leicester vs Arsenal Betting Tips
The name Leigh Herbert probably doesn’t’ mean anything to you until we tell you that this is the guy who famously won £20,000 on Leicester City winning the 2016 Premier League with the odds of 5000.00. Well, he believes the same will happen again, for which he’s placed another bet. This time, the odds are not as high as they were four seasons ago. At the moment, the odds on the Foxes winning their second Premier League trophy are 300.00.
And if you take a look at the table, you will see that Leigh Herbert’s outright bet is not as crazy as it might seem at first. Leicester City are at the 3rd place with 23 points after 11 rounds. That’s the same number of points as Chelsea who are trailing behind due to an inferior score difference. And just behind Chelsea are Arsenal with 17 points.
Above Leicester City are Manchester City, who could lose the second place after this round. They’re playing against Liverpool at the Anfield this weekend. A Man City defeat on Sunday, combined with a Leicester City win on Saturday, would result in the Foxes getting to the second position on the table. The trouble is that they’d still be far behind Liverpool, who have won 31 of possible 33 points.
Maybe Leicester won’t be able to recreate their most successful season, but they will surely be in the completion for a place among the top four, which would get them a ticket to the Champions League. It’s not only because of their amazing form but also because their main rivals haven’t been playing well.
Ahead of the 12th round, Tottenham are at 11th place, Manchester United are 10th, while Arsenal are six points behind Leicester. And that point gap can get even bigger after this match. The Gunners are traveling to the Midlands after a series of unimpressive performances in the Premier League and many conflicts between the players and the fans.
Arsenal are without a win in the English top-flight since the beginning of October and in the meantime, have been in the center of many controversies. A number of reputable pundits, including those employed at Daily Mirror, Sun, and other popular UK newspapers have voiced their critique of Arsenal manager Unai Emeri, claiming that the only way for this team to go forward is that the Spaniard gets sacked.
Furthermore, Arsenal fans have entered a heated argument over Instagram with the team captain, Granit Xhaka. The result of the issue was that he was booed off the pitch the last time he played. For all these reasons, Arsenal don’t seem too big favorites against Leicester, especially not at the King Power Stadium.
