Leicester City v Arsenal Betting Preview 09/11/2019
One of the most often repeated stats of recent weeks is that Leicester have more points at this stage of the Premier League season than they did when they won the title in the 2015/16 campaign.
No Leicester fan truly believes that their team will finish the season ahead of both Liverpool and Manchester City, but they are all absolutely delighted with the way Brendan Rodgers has the Foxes playing.
Leicester go into the weekend’s match with Arsenal third in the Premier League table. That is no less than they deserve. Indeed, Leicester have the second-best record in the league in terms of both goals scored and conceded. That is a daunting pair of stats for any opponent but especially an Arsenal team who have won just two of their last nine league matches.
Leicester to Secure Another Important Win
This Premier League always looked as though it could throw up a few surprises. Save for the top two, the way the rest of the division will end is very unpredictable. The likes of Leicester, West Ham and Everton had a real chance to break into the top six, but it’s only the Foxes who have taken the opportunity presented to them.
Some have pointed out that Leicester are something of a statistical anomaly. They are outperforming their expected goals statistics considerably, scoring more goals than the norm for the number of chances they create.
The general school of thought is that Leicester cannot continue to outperform the stats but the other way of looking at it is that the Foxes have every chance of creating more chances. They should certainly have more than their fair share of chances against an Arsenal defence which has looked very poor away from home for a long time now.
From a betting perspective, that makes a bet on Leicester scoring over 1.5 goals look very well priced at 8/11 with bet365.
If Leicester can do that scoring early in the match there is every chance that heads will drop in the Arsenal defence. Various Gunners players have bristled at the suggestion that their mentality is weak when they leave North London but there is no doubt that they are uncomfortable on the road.
Leicester have the quality required to score early and then maintain their lead so a bet on the Leicester/Leicester selection in BetVictor’s half-time/full time market is in order at 12/5.
Maddison Can Celebrate England Call Up
James Maddison was the subject of a lot of criticism during the last international break. The Leicester midfield pulled out of England duty through illness but made some fans angry when he was spotted at a casino while England were losing against the Czech Republic.
It wasn’t the best move from a PR perspective but much of the fall-out was overblown. There’s a difference between being so ill you can’t go out and a professional athlete being ill enough that it affects their performance.
Maddison showed real maturity when putting that criticism behind him. He has maintained his very good form for Leicester which has not been missed by Gareth Southgate. The Leicester number 10 can celebrate another call up to the England squad by scoring against Arsenal at generous odds of 7/2 with Paddy Power.
