Arsenal vs Leicester City – English Premier League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Arsenal vs Southampton

Leicester City visit the Emirates on 14th February, Sunday to face Arsenal as Claudio Ranieri’s men mount a challenge for the English Premier League title. The Foxes consolidated their position on the top of the table with a 3-1 win over Manchester City last weekend and would stay in the first position irrespective of their result against Arsenal.

The Gunners won 2-0 at AFC Bournemouth in their previous match after dropping nine points in the preceding four games. Arsenal have forty eight points from their fourteen wins and six draws, while Leicester City are on fifty three points with fifteen wins.

Team News

Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla are sidelined with injuries while Danny Welbeck is yet to regain match fitness. Jeffrey Schlupp and Matthew James are the long term injury concerns for the visitors and Daniel Amartey is unlikely to feature in the matchday squad, in spite of returning to training.

Arsenal Possible Starting Lineup: Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin, Gabriel Paulista, Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey, Alex-Oxlaide Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud.

Leicester City Possible Starting Lineup: Peter Schmeichel, Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan, Robert Huth, Christian Fuchs, Riyad Mahrez, Daniel Drinkwater, N’Golo Kante, Marc Albrighton, Shinji Okazaki, Jamie Vardy.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“What is important is to find the momentum back and that means that you win a few games. We want to find a consistency in our results until the end of the season, because we have big game after big game now.”

– Arsene Wenger, Arsenal.

“I think we work so hard to achieve this level. We want to stay at this level. It’s no pressure for us. The pressure was at the beginning to start well, to carry on and maintain the standard of our performance.

“I think the pressure is on the other teams. We have pressure for our little gap. We continue to dream with our fans and we want to continue to dream. Nobody wake us up please!”

– Claudio Ranieri, Leicester City.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, the previous six encounters between these two sides have resulted in four wins for Arsenal and two draws. Arsenal, in fact, have won their last five matches against Leicester City in all competitions. However, Leicester City are undefeated in fifteen of their last sixteen Premier League matches. It should be a closely contested affair, with a 1-1 draw being the most probable result.
