Arsenal will play their final game with Arsene Wenger as manager as the Gunners travel to Leicester where they will take on Leicester City in the last round of the English Premier League season. This game has no real importance to neither side but I am sure that both teams would want to end the season with a win.

Arsenal had a big win over Burnley over the weekend meaning that the Gunners have secured a place in the Europa League. While this is not a great achievement for a side like Arsenal, it is better than not playing European football. This weekend the team will have a chance to end Wenger’s career with a win which will be important since the manager has been a legend at the club for over 2 decades.

On the other side of the coin, Leicester City are on holiday mode. The Foxes look like they don’t care anymore and they have nothing more to play for. This might be the last time Jamie Vardy and Riyahd Mahrez  play for the club so I am expecting the team to put up a good performance to farewell two of the clubs best players. Arsenal will be a big test and although Leicester City are a decent side, I don’t think they will be able to get anything other than a loss from this game.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to bet on Arsenal to win so the outright result market is something which I like to wager on. In addition to that, I like the over 2.5 goals since neither side has what it takes to defend.

Pick:
Arsenal
