Both Leicester City and Arsenal are coming from the Europa League where they had mixed results ahead of their faceoff at the King Power Stadium on Sunday. Leicester, the hosts have 49 points, in third place while Arsenal have 34 points, in 11th place. Leicester will hope to quickly forget about their loss at home and elimination from the Europa League when they take on Arsenal. Both sides badly need the points, and Leicester will be hoping they can keep them, as they look to stage a challenge for the title, being 10 points below the leaders. The Foxes have three wins in the last five matches against Arsenal and will be right to view this as a winnable fixture. Jamie Vardy has been a key tormentor for Arsenal, with six goals in the last seven meetings.

They’ve scored multiple goals in six of their last nine league matches but kept only four clean sheets in the last 11.

The brightest performer at home has been Harvey Barnes, who has scored four times in their last five home league games.

The Gunners are nine points below the Europa League slots and as things stand, they may fail to qualify for Europe.
