Leicester v Arsenal Premier League betting preview and tips
Leicester City have clearly improved since dispensing with the services of Claude Puel and hiring Brendan Rodgers, with the former Liverpool manager already planning ahead for the 2019/20 campaign and there is sure to be plenty of recruitment.
The Foxes have played some decent football since the change of management, with a four-game winning run being brought to an abrupt end when losing at home to Newcastle despite having over 70% possession against the Magpies.
It’s likely to be a lower amount against an Arsenal side who are hoping to land a top four spot come the end of the campaign, although we can’t get away from the fact that the Gunners have only won six of their sixteen away encounters this term.
At the time of writing, they also have a negative goal difference on the road, with Leicester having outplayed the same team in the opening exchanges of their clash at the Emirates before Arsenal finally clicked into gear.
In honesty, Rodgers has inherited a squad full of talented players and the previous acquisition of Youri Tielemans on loan from Monaco was a particular coup, with the 21-year-old looking to sign permanently at the Midlands club.
Perhaps there is a slight reliance on Jamie Vardy when it comes to scoring goals, although James Maddison is a wizard from free-kicks and is capable of mixing up the play in the middle of the park.
We think that Leicester can avoid defeat and would like to place an Asian Handicap bet at 0.25 on the Foxes. It means that half of our stake will win if City simply get a draw, while the other half will be returned if it’s a draw and profit if the home team wins.
