Arsenal faces Leicester City on Sunday, October 25th at Emirates Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Arsenal and Leicester City will only have two days of rest in between the two clubs' UEFA Champions League matches. Arsenal took on Rapid Vienna in its first match of the Champions League, and Arsenal was victorious by the final score of 2-1. Arsenal's last Premier League match came on October 17th against Manchester City on the road. In that match, Manchester City was able to hold a very tough Arsenal attack off the scoreboard in a 1-0 win for City. Arsenal is now 3-0-2 on the year and sits in sixth place in the Premier League standings. Arsenal has scored eight goals and has conceded six goals to the opposition, therefore the team has a +2 goal differential thus far. Arsenal will look to beat a Leicester City club that has struggled a bit as of late.
Leicester City took down FC Zorya Luhansk by the final score of 3-0 in its first match of the UEFA Champions League. Leicester City's last Premier League match was on October 18th, and in that match, Leicester City dropped a 1-0 game to surging Aston Villa. Leicester City has lost three of its last five matches overall, which includes two Premier League matches. Leicester City owns a 3-0-2 record, as the team is one spot ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League standings due to goal differential. Leicester City has scored 12 goals and has conceded eight goals to the opposition, therefore the team has a +4 goal differential.
The last time Arsenal and Leicester City met was not too long ago, in fact, it was on September 23rd of 2020. That was an English Carabao Cup match in which Arsenal took down Leicester City by the final score of 2-0. Overall, the two teams each have two wins each against the other in the past five meetings.
Leicester City has not looked the sharpest recently, and I think Arsenal is going to take advantage of that. Both clubs could use the three points, but I like Arsenal's chances to find the win at home.
