Leicester City FC
Leicester City (14-4-6, 46 points) has played impressively since the month of February, winning two of its three matches by an average margin of two goals. The Foxes have proven to be a tough team in both ends of the pitch. Against Liverpool, Leicester City came from behind to score three goals in a span of seven minutes. What was even more impressive is the fact that the Foxes scored them despite having held the ball for 38% of the 90-minute game. The Brendan Rodgers-managed XI might get more chances of possessing the ball this time against Arsenal and they must take advantage of these opportunities to secure the win.
Players to Watch: Jamie Vardy (12 goals, 5 assists); Harvey Barnes (8 goals, 3 assists); James Maddison (7 goals, 5 assists); Youri Tielemans (5 goals, 2 assists); James Justin (2 goals, 1 assist).
Arsenal (10-4-10, 34 points) broke its two-game losing skid in impressive fashion, winning over Leeds United, 4-2. The victory moved them past Wolverhampton and Leeds in the battle for the 10th spot in the English Premier League table. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang carried the Gunners in the game as he registered his first Premier League hat-trick. His heroics – and Hector Bellerin’s goal in the second half – was enough to quell a second-half assault by Leeds and secure three points. The offensive wizardry of Aubameyang and Alexander Lacazette will be needed in Arsenal’s 14 remaining games if they want to contend for at least, a Europa League place. Other than the duo, Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe are capable of scoring goals for Arsenal at any given night.
Players to Watch: Alexandre Lacazette (8 goals, 2 assists); Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (8 goals, 1 assist); Bukayo Saka (5 goals, 2 assists); Nicolas Pepe (4 goals); Gabriel (2 goals).
