Leicester City travel to the Emirates Stadium to tackle Arsenal, hoping to put a disastrous 12-game losing run in the Premier League away H2Hs to an end.
The hosts have racked up three consecutive Premier League wins ahead of the round, all of which produced a clean sheet and yielded a full-time margin of over 1.5 goals. Furthermore, the Gunners are enjoying a six-game unbeaten league run at home (W5, D1), with four of their five successes during that sequence seeing Arsenal keep a clean sheet. Quick out of the blocks, the Londoners know how to put up an early show. Indeed, nine of Arsenal’s 16 Premier League home clashes this campaign have seen at least one goal (scored/conceded) inside the opening 15 minutes of play. If they concede the first goal as they did in six league home games this term, it may not be the last – Arsenal avoided defeat in four applicable matches (W2, D2, L2).
A 3-0 home victory over Crystal Palace last time out brought Leicester’s three-game winless run in the Premier League to an end (D2, L1), which now means the visitors have restricted their rivals to a maximum of one goal per match in eight consecutive league outings. However, the Foxes head to London on a run of five Premier League away games without a win (D2, L3), all of which saw them score under 1.5 goals. Particularly aggressive after the break, Brendan Rodgers’ men have managed 56.67% (17) of the 30 away goals scored in the second half of play. Against this backdrop, four of Leicester’s last five top-flight goals scored at the Emirates came in the first 45 minutes.
