Arsenal v Leicester Premier League Preview, 22nd October 8.00pm
The Gunners are in a hot streak of form in the Premier League as they are on a six-match winning streak.

That having been said the Foxes have been scoring well. Read our Arsenal v Leicester betting tips for more.

Arsenal News and Form
The Gunners have proven to be the form team of the Premier League over the last half a dozen games. That’s because they have won six from six. So they are moving along very nicely and the goals are flowing from them well. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last seven games played. Just before the international break, they secured a big 5-1 win out at Fulham. So more likely than not they will get their chances in this one and over 2.5 goals is a solid place to start at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). Five of their eight league games have ended that way.
Arsenal have won each of their last three home games by a two-goal margin which is a trend to consider. You can back them at 7/2 to win by that margin in this fixture* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). There is another trend running with them as well and that is that they have been drawing at half time and winning at full time in each of their last six games. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was only no the bench against Fulham because of fitness but is likely to get back to the starting line up. There are doubts over Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey.
Leicester News and Form
Leicester are hit and miss most of the time and they have posted a W4 L4 record so far. They suffered a 2-1 home loss against Everton just before the international break. Their away form is mixed at W2 L2 so it’s hard to get a read on them. A clear positive is that they have been scoring well and have netted in all of their games played this season. So both teams to score at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm) makes decent sense to have a look at. Jamie Vardy has two goals in his last three games for the Foxes and is pretty consistent and reliable as a goalscorer option.
The Foxes have produced seven goals away from home this season, three of their four games ending over 2.5 goals. They have two clean sheets under their belt this season, one of them on the road. There has been a consistent trend with them having scored at least two goals in each of their last three away games. 86% of their away goals have happened in the second half of matches. The Foxes will be missing Wes Morgan through suspension while Demarai Gray and Matty James will also be out on the sidelines.
Arsenal v Leicester Head to Head
There were great games between the two last season with eleven goals across the two meetings, which produced a home win. The Gunners took a 4-3 success over the Foxes at the Emirates and that leaves them on a seven-match winning streak on home soil against them. Do Leicester have not avoided a defeat at Leicester in the Premier League. Arsenal have won six of the last seven Premier League meetings home and away games the Foxes (D1).
Who will win – Arsenal v Leicester Predictions
This could be a good competitive open game, but we have to back Arsenal who have been playing some really positive stuff. The defence of Leicester is still just a bit unreliable to be able to hold out. Home win & both teams to score.
