Leicester City Form & Team News

With 49 points from 25 matches, Leicester City are placed in the second position in the points table. They are tied on points with Manchester United but have won more games than the boys from Old Trafford. Leicester City have won 15 games, drew four and have lost six games in the process. They have scored the fourth highest number of goals in the league so far with 44 goals. Leicester City are on the back of a loss against Slavia Praha in the Europa League second leg Round of 32 match. In the Premier League, they are unbeaten in the last four matches with three wins and a draw. Leicester will aim to focus on closing the gap with Manchester City and leapfrog Manchester United to the second position. 

James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, James Justin, Wesley Fofana, Wes Morgan and Dennis Praet are the players on the injury list for Leicester City and might as well miss the next game against Arsenal. Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes are in top form for Leicester City netting as many as 21 goals in the Premier League this season. James Maddison and Jamie Vardy share the highest number of assists with five each. Maddison not playing the next game will be a big blow for Leicester City but Vardy and Barnes can make up for his absence and get Leicester City rolling again.

Arsenal Form & Team News

Arsenal are placed 11th in the points table just below Leeds United. They have secured 34 points from 25 games winning ten games but losing 11 games in the process. They have also drawn four games this season. Their last match was a nerve wracking come from behind win over SL Benfica in the Europa League winning it 4-3 on aggregate. In the Premier League though they have been as inconsistent as ever losing three out of the last four matches. Their away record is also on the lower side considering they have lost six out of the 12 matches played this season. Arsenal are looking for some sort of consistency in the league and given they win their next game against Leicester City, they have chances of breaking into the top ten.

Rob Holding is the only injured player in the squad of Arsenal. He might not get to feature in the next game against Leicester City on Sunday. Arteta might not make a lot of changes to the squad which won against SL Benfica on Friday and is expected to field the same eleven unless the change is injury driven.  Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazatte top the goal scoring chart with eight goals each this season. Emile Smith Rowe is the highest assist provider with four assists to his name. When Auba and Laca are in this sort of form, it’s quite tough for the opposition defense to stop them.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams are struggling in their own way and it will not be an understatement if this game turns out to be an edgy affair. Leicester City are likely to win only because of their home advantage and superior Premier League record. Arsenal will give a tough fight but given their poor away record they might end up on the losing side. 

Tip 1: Draw No Bet Leicester City 

In the last seven head to head matches, Leicester City have won four games while drawing one. In the last five head to head matches at home Leicester City have won three games and one game ending in a stalemate. In this tournament, Leicester City have won three games and drew one game in the last four meetings between the two squads. In the last ten matches across competitions, Leicester City have managed to remain unbeaten in eight matches. Leicester City are unbeaten in this tournament in the last four matches. On the other hand, Arsenal have lost four of their last nine matches across competitions. They have lost three and drew one while winning just one game in the last five away matches. In this tournament they have a similar record winning one game, drawing one and ended up losing three games in the last five games. By considering the above stats, Leicester City have a better chance of winning it with a draw no bet to be on the safer side at 1.80 odds available at the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Total Goals Under 2.5

The last four head to head matches between Leicester City and Arsenal have ended up with a total goal under 2.5. In the last three head to head matches at Leicester, two have had the total goals to be under 2.5. Two out of the last three head to head games in the Premier League had under 2.5 goals. In the last ten games that Leicester have played had total goals under 2.5 in six games. Leicester in the last four games in this tournament have had three games ended with total goals under 2.5. Arsenal in the last nine games have had five games with goals under 2.5 in total. Apart from that, in Arsenal’s last five games, three have ended with total goals under 2.5. So it is more likely that the total goals will be under 2.5 at 1.84 odds available at the Casumo sportsbook.


A very edgy game on the cards with both teams expected to play cautiously. Goals expected to be scarce. Leicester City might end up winning this game and consolidate their position at the top of the table. Arsenal will have their task cut out to break into the top ten and nothing less than a win will help them. Summarising a couple of bets mentioned above.

  1. Draw No Bet Leicester City @ 1.80
