The Arsenal vs. Leicester match will be played on Wednesday, April 26, at the Emirates Stadium, London. Arsenal is currently 7th on the table with 57 points, while Leicester is 15th on the table with 37 points at the moment.


  • Arsenal won 2 matches in a row, after a terrible defeat in the away game against Crystal Palace. However, their defense is performing well below the standards - they conceded at least one goal in their last 6 games in all competitions.
  • Leicester recorded 6 victories in a row after they sacked Claudio Ranieri, but they are again in a lousy form - Leicester is in a series of 4 games without a win in all competitions.


In their previous 10 meetings, Arsenal recorded 6 wins, while 4 games ended in a draw. Leicester failed to defeat Arsenal in the 21st century! Arsenal is the only club which beat Leicester twice in their previous title-winning season. In 3 out of their last 4 games, we saw 3 victories for Arsenal and 3 over 2.5 goals.


For the first time in Premier League history, it seems that Arsenal won't finish in the top 4. With Arsene Wenger contract expiring, we are maybe witnessing an end of an era! Of course, Arsenal will do everything in their power to climb to the 4th position, but it will be tough. Although they have a game in hand compared from the teams from Manchester, they will probably have to win all games until the end. The victory in the upcoming match is imperative for Arsenal players.

Leicester is again nearing the relegation zone, but they still have 6 points advantage and two games in hand compared to Swansea, and it will be a huge surprise if they get relegated. They will probably focus on the games against weaker opponents and don't expect much from the match against Arsenal.

Arsenal simply has to win this game. They will attack from the first minute of the game, and we might see over 2.5 goals in the upcoming match.
