Arsenal v Leicester Betting Preview - Premier League 26th April 7.45pm
The Gunners have to get back down to the serious business of the Premier League
after their exhausting extra-time win over Man City in the FA Cup on Sunday. They need a home win in this one as they kick off seven points adrift of the top four in the top flight. Leicester have been in decent form lately though, but are winless in their last two away games in the Premier League now. Can the Gunners haul themselves a little closer to potential Champions League football?

Arsenal v Leicester Betting Tips
Arsenal have to put a win on the board in this home fixture on Wednesday night. They are already seven points out of a top four finish
and that is without counting goal difference. So they are going to need a powerful finish to overturn that deficit. Arsenal have only gone W3 D1 L5 in their nine Premier League games now but have improved to W2 D1 L1 in their last four games. The Gunners are unbeaten in their last three at home
in the top-flight (W2 D1) and both wins in that sequence were with a clean sheet. Arsenal to win to nil at SkyBet is a big 12/5 price
and punters are probably going to see more appeal in both teams to score at 1/2. Arsenal have only managed one clean sheet in their last six
league games and even Middlesbrough managed to score against them in their last league game. The Gunners and Leicester drew 0-0 at the King Power earlier
in the season, but Arsenal on are on a nine-match winning streak at home in the Premier League against the Foxes. Alexis Sanchez is at 8/11
in the anytime goalscorer market and the Gunners are looking to win back-to-back Premier League matches for the first time in over three months.
Leicester have failed to win any of their last twenty
Premier League games against Arsenal (D7 L13). So they are going into this one as underdogs. However, they have been carrying good form lately as they have gone W5 D1 L1 in their last seven league games. Away from home in the top flight, the Foxes have posted one win only
(which came recently out at West Ham) with an overall record of W1 D4 L11 away from the King Power this term in the top flight. Jamie Vardy has scored Leicester City’s last three goals
against Arsenal in the Premier League, scoring the opening goal twice. Vardy is running at 6/4 in the SkyBet anytime goalscorer market
and is worth a flutter. The Foxes have actually scored at least two goals in every one of their seven Premier League matches under Craig Shakespeare (17 goals in total) and over 2.5 goals at Sky Bet
is a 4/9 option. Leicester have netted exactly one goal in each of their last three visits to the Emirates.

Arsenal v Leicester Predictions
The Foxes are winless in their last three away games in all competitions, but they can cause an upset in this one, because of their direct style causing the Gunners problems at the back. Arsenal have the head to head winning form, but the Foxes can turn up and spoil the party
, particularly after Arsenal’s extended Wembley date on the weekend.
