Benson Chikezie, Senior Author

Arsenal will look to strengthen their hold on 4th place in the league when they take on their visitors, Leicester City, at the Emirates Stadium on Matchday 29 of the English Premier League. Arsenal vs. Leicester City kicks off by 22:00 IST on the 13th of March, 2022, and Anthony Taylor will officiate over the proceedings.

The Gunners won the reverse fixture in October at the King Power Stadium by 2 goals to nil and will be looking to repeat the feat on Sunday. Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City have had ups and downs this season, with several players underperforming this season.

The Foxes sit 12th in the league, which has become quite unfamiliar with recently. They will hope to secure their safety with a win in London and recover whatever remains of their pride this season.

Teams Status

Here is the latest on the form and team news for Arsenal and Leicester City:

Arsenal Form and Team News

Arsenal are playing excellent football presently, with several of their attacking talents shining even after the departure of ex-skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Gabriel Martinelli, Emile Smith-Rowe, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, and Alexandre Lacazette play beautifully. Their explosive form has resulted in four wins and a draw in their last five league matches.

Mikel Arteta’s men sit in 4th place, 1 point above Manchester United with 3 games in hand, and 5 points behind Chelsea, who also have games in hand. They have scored 41 times this season and conceded 29, with Smith Rowe being their top scorer, having hit the back of the net nine times and also created two goals.

For their form and team news, Arsenal will miss the services of defender Tomiyasu Takehiro who is currently sidelined with an injury.

Leicester City Form and Team News

Brendan Rodgers’ men sit in 12th place, 12 points away from the final European place, and have not sustained a good run of wins in the league this season. The Foxes have lost to sides that they are arguably stronger than, leaving question marks around the team’s mentality at the moment, especially in their defensive duties.

Leicester City recovered from a run of 2 draws and 3 losses to win 2 league games back to back for the first time since October 2021. In all, they have played 25 times this season (with 3 games in hand) and recorded 9 wins, 6 draws, and 10 losses, scoring 40 goals and conceding 43. Veteran Jamie Vardy is their leading goalscorer with 10 goals and 2 assists.

For their team news, Leicester City have several players on the sidelines, with James Maddison, Timothy Castagne, Jonny Evans, Justin James, Ricardo Pereira, and Ryan Bertrand all injured and doubtful to make the trip to London.

Meetings between these two sides in recent seasons show that there has not been much between them in terms of quality. In their last 10 meetings, Arsenal have won 5, Leicester City have won 4, and 1 game ended in a draw.

Arsenal have won 7 of their last 10 home games in all competitions, while Leicester City have lost 7 out of their last 10 on the road in all competitions. In the last 5 home meetings between these two, Leicester have only won once, losing 3 and drawing 1. Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Arsenal To Win or Draw @ 1.12

Arsenal have an abundance of attacking talent at their disposal, who have seemingly hit great form at the business end of the season. They need all the points to secure their European place and have 60,000 fans cheering them to win. We expect Arsenal to come away from this one with a victory or a draw, at least. Arsenal to win or draw is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.12 odds.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.18

Leicester City have averaged at least 2 goals per game in their last 10 away games in all competitions. Also, Arsenal have failed to record a 2-goal result in home games twice in their last 10. Both teams know how to score and have shown great promise in attacking positions recently. We expect at least 2 goals in this fixture. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.18 odds.


Arsenal vs. Leicester City has become a blockbuster meeting since Leicester won the league under Claudio Ranieri. The Gunners need all 3 points, and so do the Foxes, and both teams hope to continue their winning streaks, but only one winner can emerge.
