With Leicester City riding high in the Premier League table they will take on Arsenal on Saturday looking to keep their unbeaten start to the season going. The Foxes have shown tremendous resiliance this season twice coming from two goals behind to salvage points on two occasions and coming from behind in four games this season. New boss Claudio Ranieri has done a great job installing confidence and work ethic in this side and he is getting the best out of the side with Mahrez and Vardy in particular playing out of their skin. The foxes are a hard team to beat and this will be a huge test for them as they face a big four team for the first time this season.
Arsenal need a win, if they lost midweek to Tottenham in the league cup this is going to be a massive game for the Gunners. Arsene Wenger's side does not want to fall any further behind the front runners and with both Manchester clubs playing well and getting results Wenger will want to ensure his side keeps pace with the big boys. Leicester have proven to be a very tough nut to crack this season though and Arsenal have been terrible in front of goal with just three goals actually scored by Arsenal players. Defensively though the Gunners have been quite good with three clean sheets in six games, the performances of Petr Cech has definitely been vital but also the play of Gabriel has been key. Unfortunately for Arsenal Gabriel was sent off against Chelsea last weekend and will miss three games.
Going to take both teams to score here. Leicester City have scored in every game so far this season and I think they continue that trend against a Gabriel-less Arsenal, Arsenal themselves need to get some offence going and they are struggling without doubt but I feel like this is too talented a team to struggle offensively for too long. Ozil, Cazorla, Sanchez and Walcott are all bound to get going and when they do Arsenal will start winning games but until then we'll be fading the Gunners, especially on the road.
