Arsenal 1/1 to beat Leicester in Wednesdays Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Arsenal to beat Leicester
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet365
With the Premier League table reaching the end of the season, English football’s top division remains incredibly tight at both ends of the table with just a single point seeing a team jump several places. On that note, Arsenal will look carry on Arsene Wenger’s leaving party when they travel to Leicester on Wednesday night.
For the hosts on Wednesday night, although Leicester showed some initial success under Claude Puel earlier in the year, The Foxes have drastically struggled at the final stretch. After 36 Premier League games this season, Leicester have won 11, drawn 11 and lost 14, scoring 49 and conceding 54. With a points tally of 49, The Blues now sit ninth in the table but know that Europa League football is off the cards for next season after a recent dip in form, Leicester’s main objective is to now try and secure a top half finish. As for their recent results, Leicester have now failed to win any of their last five, losing four and drawing one, more worrying for The Foxes is the fact that they have not scored a single goal in their last three outings.
As for the visitors, although Champions League football is gone for another season, Arsenal are determined to send Arsene Wenger off on a high. After 36 Premier League games this season, Arsenal have won 18, drawn six and lost 12, scoring 72 and conceding 48 in return, although this has been statically Arsenal’s worst season in recent memory, The Gunners do hold the third best-attacking record in the division. With a points tally of 60, Arsenal now sit sixth in the table and with just two games remaining they are now 11 points adrift of the Top Four and hold a six-point buffer over seventh place, Burnley. As for their recent form, although The Reds have only won two of their last seven in all competitions, Arsenal have not been beaten by Leicester in their last 22 meetings between the two sides.
