Leicester vs. Arsenal – Prediction (Premier League – 09.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Leicester City have won their last two Premier League home games against Arsenal – they’ve never beaten the Gunners in three consecutive home top-flight matches.

With five wins in their last six Premier League (PL) outings, Leicester City are flying high, with one point more than they had at the same stage in their 2015/16 title-winning season. Those five wins saw Leicester average exactly 4.0 goals per match, with four of them seeing the ‘Foxes’ win the second half to-nil by two or more goals. Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has averaged 1.5 goals per-match against Arsenal across his last two PL home H2Hs, with all of his goals coming beyond the 75th minute. The ‘Foxes’ have also won their last four home league fixtures, outscoring their opponents by a 4:1 ratio within that sequence (GF 12, GA 3). Of potential relevance, Leicester humiliated Arsenal by a three-goal margin in last season’s corresponding fixture.

Leicester have won both prior PL home games where they have conceded first this season. October 2017 remains the last time Arsenal won a PL away match after conceding first. A player under the age of 23 (at the time) has scored Leicester’s opener in the last two H2Hs here.

That loss was also Arsenal’s second in succession here, with the ‘Gunners’ conceding exactly twice beyond the 75th minute in each visit. It also forms part of a disgraceful run, which has seen Arsenal recover just one solitary point (of 27) from the last nine occasions they have conceded first on the road in a league match. Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is responsible for every one of the Gunners’ five PL away points, with three of his four away league goals coming in the 31st-60th minute period. Going into this one, Arsenal have won just one of their last five PL matches at any venue. That sequence includes a return of just one point from the last possible six on the road, with the ‘Gunners’ losing the first half 1-0 both times.
