Soccer – Arsenal v Leicester City Betting: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions


In strong form and boasting an excellent record against the Foxes, Al Hain-Cole is backing Emery’s men to come out on top in a high-scoring clash

Arsenal will be aiming to take their winning streak into double figures when they welcome Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium on Monday.

Unai Emery’s men have won nine matches in a row in all competitions, but have not won 10 in succession since 2007.

Latest Odds

Having come out on top in each of the last 11 top-flight encounters with the guests on home turf, they are 8/15 (1.53) favourites with bet365 to extend their run by collecting maximum points yet again.

The Foxes have not secured an away victory over this opposition in any competition since 1973, but can be backed at 11/2 (6.50) to pull off a shock win in this one.

Just one of the last seven meetings between this pair has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 7/2 (4.50) on this one finishing up all square.

Team News

Sokratis and Danny Welbeck are doubts after picking up injuries during the international break, although Petr Cech, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Mesut Ozil are all in contention after returning to training.

Wes Morgan is suspended after picking up his second red card of the season last time out, while Demarai Gray and Matty James are sidelined through injury.

Goals at both ends

Although they have waited 45 years for an away win in this part of North London, Claude Puel’s team came close to ending that run when they twice took the lead before conceding two late goals in a topsy-turvy 4-3 defeat last campaign.

Having failed to score in just two of their last 19 league matches on the road, they will certainly back themselves to cause similar problems for a Gunners defence that has conceded in eight of their 11 fixtures so far this season.

Predictions

Given Arsenal’s form and home record against Leicester, odds of 7/4 (2.75) look generous on them maintaining their winning streak despite conceding at the Emirates Stadium.
