THE PREDICTION

Arsenal look to have found some form finally and the win over Wolves at the weekend was their best performance since the restart. They have won their last four matches now and they look better at the back, while offensively, they continue to be a threat with Nketiah forming a good partnership with Aubameyang. They face a Leicester side who got a much-needed win under their belts last time out which should boost their confidence. They know they need to keep picking up points with the race for the top four heating up but they will be up against it here given Arsenal’s improvement. Expect both teams to play for the win and that should lead to goals at both ends of the pitch.
