Leicester City are due to play in a Premier League clash against Arsenal at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening, in what should be a high-quality attacking game.

On paper, the Foxes will be the favourites to win the clash.

Leicester head into the fixture in good form after having won five out of their last six games in all competitions.

By contrast, Arsenal are looking very vulnerable at the back and have won just one out of their previous six games in all competitions, losing once and drawing four times in the process.

Leicester have the joint best defence in the Premier League so far this season and Brendan Rodgers’ side will be looking to maintain their solid defensive record on Saturday as they look to push for a potential finish in the top four this season.

The Foxes have also been brilliant in attack. They have won seven out of their past nine Premier League games and managed to score at least twice in each victory.

Leicester have a near fully fit squad available for the game, according to a report which was published by BBC Sport.

The report added that the Foxes’ only doubt for the game is Matty James. The 28-year-old has reportedly begun light training as he looks to return to competitive action.

If Leicester do manage to win the game, it will mark the first time that they have claimed three consecutive top-flight home victories over Arsenal.

Rodgers’ side can certainly aim to get three points from the game but they will need to contain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette to ascertain this.
