It is another night of Premier League football and this time, two top 4 hopefuls will be going head to head. Arsenal will be hosting Leceister City at the Emirates. The Gunners’ rich vein of form has seem them win their last 3 Premier League games, scoring 8 goals and conceding none. They are now 7th on the log, 9 points behind the foxes.
Prior to the sudden suspension of the league owing to Covid 19 pandemic, the Foxes looked certain to finish top 4, infact at some point, they were tussling with Manchester City for the second spot but poor form since the restart, have seen them drop points, they are now scrambling for a top 4 finish. With the resurgence from Manchester United, Chelsea and even Arsenal, Leceister City have their work cut out if they are to finish in the top 4.
Tonight would definitely be an acid test for both sides. For Mikel Arteta side, they have another tough test to prosecute but buoyed by away clean sheet victories or Southampton and Wolves, they definitely go into the game full of confidence. They have to be wary though, as the Foxes seem to have found their feet, having won their last game with Vardy ending his barren spell with a brace.
Tonight’s game is more than just 3 points and fight for a top 4, it is also a fight for the golden shoe.
Tonight’s game is more than just 3 points and fight for a top 4, it is also a fight for the golden shoe as the match pit the two top scorers in the league, Vardy and Aubamenyang against eachother. Vardy stole a march on the Gabonese striker after his brace in the last round of matches. Aubamenyang would look to bridging the goal gap by scoring tonight.
The match promises to be an entertaining one as both teams are known for their entertaining football, but Arsenal are expected to push for it more as they need to secure a result if they hope to make a serious push for the champions League places. Leceister on the other hand would also hope for a result to ensure they dont lose grip on the third spot.
Head to head is in Arsenal’s favour as the Gunners have won 16 of their last 27 meetings but recent outings have been in the Foxes’ favour as they have won the last two Premier League matches, 3 nil and 2 nil. Beyond a push up the league table, Arsenal will be looking to stem the tide that has been going against them in recent times.
