Betting Tip: Backing a home win by a goal at 3/1 on Bet365

Arsenal come into this game having struggled for form in recent weeks, but got their Premier League results back on track with a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough last Monday. Arsene Wenger opted for three at the back and in truth they coped well, but it would be risky to repeat the trick at home to Leicester.

The Foxes are still on a great run despite losing a two-goal lead at Crystal Palace recently. The pace and intensity which took them to their remarkable Premier League title win last season has returned since Craig Shakespeare stepped into Claudio Ranieri’s shoes earlier this season.

It wasn’t that Arsenal were particularly excellent in defence against Boro, in fact they looked very nervous, it was more the fact that the Teessiders once again failed to offer much in the way of movement in attack. They failed to stretch them and allowed them to stay as a compact unit. Leicester, of course, will not do this, especially away from home, because they have made their reputation on counter attacking football and getting in team’s faces.

Jamie Vardy rejected the chance to join Arsenal in the summer and he will be looking to justify his decision. The Foxes will once again go 4-4-2, meaning they would be putting pressure on the Arsenal back line from the off. In terms of players capable of forcing the issue, Boro only really had Adama Traore to call on, which they didn’t until the second half, while Leicester will look to the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Demarai Gray and Ahmed Musa, who all possess blistering pace.

 

One of the benefits of Arsenal’s experiment at the Riverside was the positions picked up by Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, who both scored on the night. Because Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Nacho Monreal were covering out wide, they were able to roam in behind the Boro midfield and get closer to the goal. But space will not be easy to come by with Wilfred Ndidi and Danny Drinkwater having improved dramatically in recent weeks.

This game will be huge and it depends completely on Wenger’s central midfield choices as to if they take the points or not. Playing Francis Coquelin will give them more chance of stopping the supply line on the break, while Granit Xhaka would provide some cover but be more effective going forward.

Arsenal have been unconvincing of late but at this point, only a result will do. We are backing them here, but only slightly.
