Tip Leicester - Arsenal
Third placed Leicester City will host fifth placed Arsenal when the Premier League enters Match Day 12 this Saturday. Going to the match, Leicester City are placed third with 23 points and Arsenal fifth with 17 points. The two sides have had contrasting runs in the past few matches. Leicester have won each of their last four matches and have just one loss in their last eight matches. They have won seven of the last eight matches and have lost just twice all season. Their losses have come against tough opponents too – Manchester United and Liverpool. They have been good going forward and they are the second best scorers, with 27 goals. Leicester are also the joint best defensive side in the league, having let in just eight goals. They have scored two goals or more in eight of their last 10 matches and only failed to score in two of their 14 matches this season. Four of their last five matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored while they are unbeaten in seven home matches, winning five and keeping four clean sheets. Their last four home matches have witnessed over 2.5 goals. Jamie Vardy has been a key man for the team and has scored 10 in 11 league games; he will definitely play a big role here.
Arsenal, on the other hand, have not had a very good run lately. The club has had inside turmoil and this has affected performance on the pitch. The club management recently changed captains and coming from midweek action in Europa League away in Portugal won’t help too. However, a number of first team players were either rested or didn’t travel. Arsenal have no win in their last four matches and have just one win in six. They have no clean sheet in the last six matches and have conceded two or more goals in three of the last five. Also, three of their last five matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Arsenal have managed just two wins in their last nine Premier League matches, while they have only one clean sheet in 10 league matches. They are without a win in their last four away matches but they have three wins in the last five meetings with Leicester City. The last four meetings between these two sides have yielded over 2.5 goals. Pierre – Emerick Aubameyang will be leading the team as the official new skipper in this game. He will still be the key man, having scored eight goals in 11 matches.

Conclusion Leicester - Arsenal
Arsenal head to this game as outright underdogs; their house has not been in order for a while now, and it is showing. Lately, Arsenal don’t score a lot, and they are meeting the best defensive side in the league. On the flip side, Leicester score a lot and Arsenal are not the best at defending. Arsenal have no clean sheet in the last six matches, and just one in 10 league matches. Going to this game, they face a Leicester side that has failed to score in just two of their 14 matches this season. Good bets here would be either on a Leicester City win, or over 2.5 goals.
