Leicester City vs Arsenal: Match details

Match: Leicester City vs Arsenal

Competition: Premier League

Date: October 30, 2021

Kick-off time: 12:30 pm, October 30, 2021 (UK time)

Stadium: King Power Stadium

Arsenal

Premier League match between Leicester City and Arsenal at The King Power Stadium on May 9, 2018 in Leicester, England.

Betting prediction: Leicester City 1 – 0 Arsenal

Leicester City welcomes Arsenal to the King Power Stadium on Saturday for this Premier League match.

The Gunners have the strong upper hand in the head-to-head, with 17 wins to Leicester’s 5, from their 30 encounters in the Premier League.

Although, 4 of Leicester’s 5 victories have come at home, with Arsenal only picking up 5 of their 17 wins in Leicester.

Arsenal have won here in each of their last 2 visits in all competitions, however. They beat the Foxes twice at the King Power last season in both the EFL Cup and the league by a 2-goal margin. These marked the first Arsenal wins here since Arsene Wenger stepped down as manager.

Leicester City vs Arsenal: Recommended bets

101 Great Goals’ prediction of Leicester 1 – 0 Arsenal is available at odds of 10/1.

2-2 draw. Leicester have drawn 2 of their last 3 home meetings with Arsenal and both with a 2-2 scoreline. Odds of 15/1 are available if you see this match finishing with the same result.

1-3 Arsenal win. Arsenal’s last visit to the King Power Stadium ended in a 1-3 win back in February. You can back them at 23/1 for the same scoreline here on Saturday.

Under 2.5 goals. The last Leicester vs Arsenal clash broke the recent trend of low-scoring games between these sides. Prior to Arsenal’s 1-3 win back in February, the previous 4 games had all be under 2.5 goal games. You can back a return to the trend here with another low scoring game on Saturday at odds of 2/1 for under 2.5 goals.

Jamie Vardy Goalscorer. Vardy (below) has scored nearly twice as many goals in this head-to-head as any other player in the Premier League era, with 11 goals in 13 appearances. His failure to score at the King Power Stadium last season ended a run of 4 consecutive games in which he had scored in this fixture. The 34-year-old striker averages a goal every 94 minutes in this match throughout his career, and is 2.75/1 to bag another goal at any time during the game against Arsenal. Or you can back Vardy at 6.5/1 to score the game’s opener on Saturday.

Leicester City vs Arsenal: What are the betting odds?

The Foxes are 2.45/1 to extend their home winning run to 4 games in all competitions by taking all 3 points from Arsenal on Saturday.

Whereas, the Gunners are 2.87/1 to pick up a third consecutive away win in all competitions at King Power Stadium.

Odds of 3.4/1 are available if you see Leicester and Arsenal cancelling each other out on Saturday.

Leicester City vs Arsenal: Match preview

For all the talk of a crisis at Arsenal, their league performances over the last 6 games are a match for anybody in the Premier League. The 14 points picked up in that time can be bettered by only Chelsea, who picked up 15 points over the same time period.

Unlike Chelsea, underlying performances in that time have been as good as results, coming out on top on expected goals. The point at Brighton that was perhaps a little fortunate on the balance of play is overshadowed by the 2 points extra they would have picked up at home to Crystal Palace, where Arsenal conceded 2 goals from an expected goals against of just 0.49.

It is perhaps too soon to talk about Arsenal ‘being back’ and on the trail of trophies but it is a massive improvement on the side that were bottom of the league at the first international break of the season without a goal, never mind a point, to their name.

Of course, the quality of opposition comes into play too and cannot be ignored. Those first 3 games of the season included Chelsea and Manchester City, perhaps creating the perception that things were worse than they were. Equally, the only ‘big 6’ side they faced in their last 6 games were Tottenham, who were at their lowest point in the season.

Brighton and Crystal Palace, two teams who will cause almost anybody a problem this season, saw Arsenal drop 4 points. Perhaps the next 6 games which includes Liverpool, as well as Everton with Dominic Calvert-Lewin back, plus the Uniteds of both Manchester and Newcastle potentially with a new manager bounce at each, will give a better glimpse at where this Arsenal side are at right now.

The first of the next 6 games could be one of the toughest of them all, away to a Leicester side that beat Manchester United 4-2 recently, as well as the Brentford side that gave Liverpool and Arsenal so many problems this season.

Like Arsenal, Leicester have been quite the Jekyll and Hyde team at times under Brendan Rodgers. This match likely comes down to whichever team shows up on the day ready to deal with a tough opponent.

Leicester City team news vs Arsenal

Nampalys Mendy is yet to feature for Leicester this season due to a groin injury. No timeframe for his return has been provided yet by the club.

Wesley Fofana also remains on the long-term injury list after suffering a broken leg in pre-season. We likely won’t see Fofana back in action until 2022.

James Justin is still on the long road back from an ACL injury. He is due to start training with the team again very soon but it will likely take several weeks and possible reserve appearances before he can feature for the first team again.

Marc Albrighton was on the receiving end of a horrendous challenge in the game against Spartak Moscow. He’s probably going to be two to three weeks out with a leg injury which means we won’t see him again until after the November international break.

Wilfred Ndidi is also ruled out until after the next international break with a thigh injury. He has missed the last 3 league games for Leicester.

Jamie Vardy was removed at halftime against Brentford last weekend after complaining of pain in his knee. Hopefully, after removing him early in the match as a precaution, and sitting out the Brighton match in midweek, the striker will be fine to start here on Saturday.

Arsenal team news vs Leicester City

Granit Xhaka remains Arsenal’s only long-term injury problem. Xhaka suffered a medial collateral ligament injury in late September and is expected to return towards the start of 2022.

Pablo Mari hasn’t been involved in any of Arsenal’s last 4 Premier League squads. He missed out last weekend due to illness and is 50/50 to be involved here.

Martin Odegaard managed only 20 minutes against Villa last weekend but was struggling afterwards and wasn’t involved in the squad to face Leeds in midweek. He is touch and go to be involved here.

Ben White is the latest Arsenal player to be affected by a bug going around the club. He managed only 55 minutes against Leeds before needing to be withdrawn. He faces a fitness test to start against Leicester. Calum Chambers and Rob Holding will be battling it out to replace him if he isn’t fit in time.

Kieran Tierney missed last weekend’s 3-1 win versus Villa due to a bruised left ankle. Like White, he faces a fitness test to be involved here. Nuno Tavares will continue in his absence if required.
