Two sides battling for a place in the top four – and to former Premier League champions – meet at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening. This match will be shown live on Sky Sports from 5.30pm and it’s one part of an exciting list of European live matches shown live that night. Great news for armchair fans and even better for those looking to place accumulators. Here are our top Leicester v Arsenal betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Leicester is shaping as the surprise package of the Premier League so far and has been performing above expectations since Brendan Rodgers swapped Celtic for The Foxes and helped steady the ship. How far can they go? Another title looks even more unlikely than it was when they finished on the top step but there’s no reason, judging on recent form, why they can’t hold on to a top-four finish and make an astonishing and welcome return to the Champions League.
A Gunners Fight
Arsenal is desperate to push for a return to the top four as it has been far too long since they featured in the Champions League. The Gunners have been making headlines for all the wrong reasons recently with reported in-fighting. Captain Granit Xhaka was involved in a bust-up with fans following a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at home recently and that has threatened his captaincy. Many wants want rid of the midfielder but the club has vowed to stand by him.
The home win is 5/4 favourite at Bet365 or you can get your stake money down on Arsenal who looks real value at 15/8 with the same firm. A draw is 13/5. We’re taking both teams to score at 1/2 with 10bet and that will do a job in your accumulators.
