Arsenal and Leicester City are clashing at Emirates Stadium in round 29 of the English Premier League. Arsenal is now on a 4-game winning streak, but they have been conceding goals consistently throughout the entire season. Leicester has also woken up, they got Vardy back, and they are immediately scoring more goals and winning games.
Arsenal is now undefeated in their last 5 games, while winning 4 of those 5, and they were all in the EPL. Thanks to that streak, Arsenal has climbed into the top 4, which is the Champions League spot, and if they stay there, it will be a huge success for them. During that 4-game winning streak, Arsenal has scored 8 goals, they have conceded 4 goals, and they have kept 1 clean sheet. The schedule is not getting any easier for Arsenal, and the battle is just beginning for them, but if they can stay somewhat consistent, they might win some points. Smith-Rowe is the leading goalscorer for Arsenal with 9 goals, while Saka has added 8 goals. Lacazette has added 7 assists. Tomiyasu is now the only injured player for Arsenal, but Smith-Rowe is still questionable. What is going Arsenal’s way is the fact they are not playing anything else other than the EPL, and only because of that they might stay in the top 4.
Leicester has improved greatly, and now they are now playing as well as we know they can. Leicester is also on a 4-game winning streak right now, and they were outstanding defensively with 3 clean sheets in their last 3 games. Offensively, Leicester was also great with 8 scored goals. At the moment, Leicester is pretty far from the top 5 in the EPL, in 12th place with 33 points, but with all the injuries and struggles they have had this season, that is not bad. Leicester is still playing in the Conference League where they have beaten Rennais earlier this week. Vardy is still the leading goalscorer for Leicester with 10 goals, while Maddison has added 7 goals. Barnes has 6 assists. There are still quite a few injuries in Leicester, but a lot less than it has to be. Leicester is a team that is constantly moving forward, they have some of the best fans in England, and they have the owners who are not in this to make money. I hope Leicester can win the Conference League this season, and I think they will go for it.
Both teams are in excellent form right now, and for that reason, I think this will be a fun game to watch. Neither team is yet playing too well defensively, and for that reason, I see goals on both sides.
