Leicester vs Arsenal Match Details
Leicester vs Arsenal kicks-off at The King Power Stadium at 4.30pm on Saturday 9 November.
Leicester boast the second-best home record in the Premier League this season after Liverpool. After drawing their opener 0-0 against Wolves, the Foxes have notched up four consecutive home wins against Bournemouth (3-1), Tottenham (2-1), Newcastle (5-0), and Burnley (2-1). They also boast the joint-best defensive record, whilst only Manchester City have scored more goals than them, suggesting there’s certainly no fluke about their season so far.
They’ve also won their last two on the road, following that historic 9-0 win at Southampton with a 2-0 win over a Crystal Palace, which matched Manchester City’s result at Selhurst Park two-weeks earlier. That all suggests Leicester deserve their lofty position in the Premier League table.
Arsenal started the season well but are paying for Unai Emery’s failure to find his best team. Two home draws in succession against Crystal Palace and Wolves have seen them drop six points behind the Champions League spots, but it’s their away form that is causing them the most problems.
The Gunners won their opener 1-0 at Newcastle but have failed to win on the road since. They’ve drawn with Manchester United and Watford but have also been beaten by Liverpool and Sheffield United.
Leicester vs Arsenal Head-To-Heads
Arsenal used to dominate their matches with Leicester and have won 16, drawn 7, and lost just three of the previous 26 Premier League matches between the two sides. But Leicester’s three wins have all come at home.
What’s even more interesting is Leicester have won their last two matches against Arsenal at the King Power Stadium, beating Arsenal 3-1 two seasons ago. They improved on that to win 3-0 last season in April, which was after Brendan Rogers had taken charge.
Jamie Vardy scored three of Leicester’s six goals in those two games against the Gunners, whilst he also bagged two more in Leicester 4-3 defeat at the Emirates in 2017. Young Belgian Youri Tielemans also got on the scoresheet last season.
