English Premier League - Arsenal vs Leicester City Prediction

Analysis:

Arsenal bagged all 3 points in the very first game of the new English Premier League season away at Crystal Palace and currently, play host to Leicester City. Leicester City were held to a draw at home soil to Brentford notwithstanding taking a 2-0 lead, therefore Brendan Rodgers' squad will need to put in a greater performance if they really want to depart the Emirates with something to show for their efforts.

Arsenal 

Gunners showed they mean business past Friday night, cleansing the sour memories of a 3-0 loss at Selhurst Park previous season by running out 2-0 victorious this time. Gabriel Martinelli initiated the scoring in the 20th minutes and Mikel Arteta will be hopeful for big package from his squads this season. The match was somehow tough and tense throughout but Gunners made sure of the points starting 5-minutes from time when the unlucky Marc Guehi send the ball into his own net.

Leicester City 

Leicester City kicked off pretty well at home ground to Brentford, taking the lead through full-back Timothy Castagne in the 33rd-minutes. Early in the 2nd half, Leicester City picked up where they left off and doubled their advantage through Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall after good assist from Jamie Vardy. With the match still in their possession, Leicester City allowed Brentford fall back into the game as Toney notched his 1st goal of the new season. Under pressure, Leicester City crumbled and Brentford were allowed to pinch an equalizing goal via Josh Dasilva.

Verdict: The Gunners have a better record over Leicester City, winning 4 of the last five H2H encounters across all competitions, and the Gunners will definitely win on Saturday. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 4 of Arsenal matches and 5 of Leicester City past 6 outings across all competitions, so i hope that goals will flow in this match as well.

1X2 Pick: 1
