Leicester City may still have a spot in Europe to fight for going into the final three games of the season. In what has been a season of inconsistency, the Foxes currently occupy a spot in mid-table but assuming that Manchester City overcome Watford as expected in the FA Cup Final next month, then finishing in seventh place in the table will be enough to gain qualification to the Europa League which they are still very much capable of achieving.
It’s a goal! Jamie Vardy (Leicester) puts the ball past the goalkeeper!
An unlucky rebound falls to Jamie Vardy (Leicester) and he scores with a bullet header.
Since replacing the unpopular Claude Puel with Brendan Rodgers just a few short weeks ago, the club have started to play with more attacking freedom and with some success, having lost just one of their last six Premier League games to rise up to tenth place in the table and within three points of Wolves who currently occupy that coveted seventh spot. A dramatic point at West Ham last week will keep confidence high as they go in search of three points here at 17/10 with William Hill.
Jamie Vardy continues to be the main attacking threat in this Leicester City outfit. The 31 year old was on the scoresheet in that 2-2 draw with West Ham United last weekend to take his seasonal tally to 16 in the Premier League. Having nearly joined Arsenal following the Foxes astonishing Premier League title win a few years ago, he’s been a thorn in their side throughout his time at Leicester, scoring against the Gunners on six occasions.
Leicester vs Arsenal Prediction
Arsenal wasted two good opportunities to lock in their Champions League qualification, as their closest two rivals – Chelsea and Manchester United, both were winless in their last two ties. But the Gunners failed to post a single point in the last two match-days as well. They have been afforded a third, and probably final chance to make it happen.Chelsea is taking on the Devils, and the Gunners will not get another opportunity like this. They have to make it count. The setting is in place for them to go after their objective though.
The Gunners recorded 13 of the last 14 h2h wins, and three of the last four wins at this venue. Moreover, Arsenal is one of the powerhouses of English Football, while Leicester is a pretty ordinary team (provided we disregard their unexpected title two years back).Also consider that Unai Emery’s men won ten of their last fifteen games, while Leicester was winless in ten of their last fifteen. Expect the Gunners to post three points on the board this weekend.
