Leicester City hosts Arsenal
One of the most interesting matches from the 12th round of the Premier League is going to be played at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. Leicester City hosts Arsenal and we are going to discuss this in our English Premier League predictions.
We can only give compliments to Leicester’s manager Brendan Rodgers for the work he’s doing with this team. Right now the Foxes are third in the Premier League standings with 23 points, which is an incredible improvement for the club. If Rodgers’ work send Leicester to the Champions League again, he could be a real contender for the Manager of the year of prize at the end of the season.
Right now the Foxes are in a run of three consecutive wins in the league. On Sunday they faced another team from London, beating Crystal Palace with 2-0 at the Selhurst Park. Caglar Soyuncu opened the score for the visitors, while the “usual suspect” Jamie Vardy doubled the lead.
Jamie Vardy is the man who’s leading the Premier League goalscoring chart at the moment. The English international has 10 goals already on his account, being ahead of Sergio Aguero and Tammy Abraham. Great season so far for him.
Meanwhile Unai Emery’s second season in Arsenal is not much different than the first one. The Gunners are once again out of the Top 4, being 5th in the table with 17 points – 6 less than their next opponent. In their last five games in the Premier League Arsenal won just once, which is a reason for the fans and the board to be really worried.
On Tuesday Arsenal once again didn’t win. They faced Vitoria Guimaraes in Europa League, but only won a point after a 1-1 draw. Shkodran Mustafi scored Arsenal’s only goal in the game.
In our English Premier League predictions we can convincingly say that Leicester City are entering this game against Arsenal as favourites. The Foxes are better right now and don’t be surprised if they show it.
