Prop Bet: | Total Goals Over 2.5 & Bukayo Saka to Score Anytime (+260) |
The last time these two teams played, there were a total of 6 goals at the Emirates Stadium.
Before their comeback win last weekend against Aston Villa, Arsenal had gone 4 Premier League matches in a row without a win.
Arsenal can definitely score goals, and quickly, but the defensive issues still have to be addressed. They will be facing a Leicester City side that has scored 36 goals this season ranking them 8th in the Premier League.
Although Leicester City can also score goals, they have conceeded the second most goals in the Premier League.
So with Arsenal’s high flying offense, I expect there to be no shortage of goals this weekend. When Arsenal score a goal, 20% of the time the player behind that goal is Bukayo Saka. So look for him to get himself into double digits this weekend.
- Arsenal have conceded a goal in their previous 5 Premier League matches (1.8 goals per 90 min).
- There have been over 2.5 goals in 14 of Arsenal’s 23 Premier League matches played.
- Leicester City are averaging 2.5 goals per 90 minutes in their previous 4 Premier League games.
- Both teams have scored with over 2.5 goals being produced in 3 of Leicester’s last 5 matches as well as in 3 of Arsenal’s last 6.
PREDICTION: LEICESTER CITY 1 – 3 ARSENAL
