Premier League action returns as Leicester City welcome The Gunners to the King Power Stadium for matchday 10 of the 2021-22 Premier League season.
Leicester City has managed to put early season woes behind with three consecutive victories. They now sit ninth in the premier league standings with 14 points – eight-points adrift league leaders Chelsea. Consecutive victories against Manchester United, Spartak Moscow, and Brentford has eased pressure on Brendan Rodger. Their last premier league outing was a hard-fought 2-1 win over newly-promoted Brentford. In-form midfielder Youri Tielemans put them ahead with a magnificent volley in the 14th minute. Despite a 60th minute equalizer, Leicester managed to win the game thanks to a James Maddison goal following a lightning counter-attack. Long-term absentees Wesley Fofana, James Justin, and Wilfred Ndidi are unavailable. Midfielder Marc Albrighton missed the last game with a knock and could return to the bench here.
After a dismal start to the 2021-22 premier league season, Arsenal are back on their feet with good performances and picking up points. They are currently undefeated in seven games (W5 D2). They now sit tenth in the premier league standings with 14 points – eight-points adrift league leaders Chelsea. They have scored 10 goals and conceded 13 so far in the league. Their last premier league outing was a comfortable 3-1 win over Aston Villa. Thomas Partey gave them the lead in the 23rd minute after heading in a corner. Following a controversial penalty check, Aubameyang scored the rebound after he missed his penalty at the stroke of half-time to double their lead. They failed to keep a clean sheet to crown a perfect performance as they conceded in the 82nd minute. Arsenal has won just one game on the road this season. Kieran Tierney missed the last game due to an ankle injury and face a race to fitness. Granit Xhaka is the only long-term absentee. Given no European involvements this season, Arteta is likely to continue with the same starting lineup.
Arsenal has won just two of the last six meetings between both sides. Leicester have struggled defensively with BTTS coming in five of their last six games and just one clean sheet in their last 11 games. Arsenal has won at HT in their last four Premier League wins. Given a weakened Leicester defense, we are backing BTTS here.
