Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium in one of the biggest games yet in the race for the Premier League title.
Arsenal v Leicester
Kick-off 12PM 14th February 2016
Sky Sports 1 / Sky Sports 1 HD
This is a must-win clash for home side Arsenal. Following last weekend’s result the Gunners are five points behind Leicester in the race for the Premier League title. A win would put Arsene Wenger’s side right back in the title race.
The north London side recorded their first win in their last five top-flight games last time out by winning 2-0 at Bournemouth. Wenger’s side also ended a three match goal draught and will head into this clash knowing looking to do the double over the Foxes.
Arsenal are desperate for the win in this vital clash and can be backed at odds of 4/5 with Totesport.
Leicester 3-1 win at Manchester City last weekend caused a stir in the whole football community, as the win displayed that the Foxes genuine title credentials.
Claudio Ranieri’s side are extremely difficult to beat and have suffered just two defeats this season in the top-flight, although it is worth noting that one of those came in the reverse fixture against Arsenal in a 5-2 drubbing.
Leicester’s title challenge has been built on the Foxes being strong away from home. The league leaders have suffered just one defeat in their last 16 Premier League games on their travels.
Following that win at City last time out and looking at their superb away record, it is hard to write-off an away win in this clash. You can back Leicester at odds of 4/1 with Bet365.
The draw looks like it could be a decent bet at odds of 31/10 with BetVictor, but I can see the home side recording a vital victory and opening the title race right up.
The draw may be tempting, but for me the home win is the big tip, which can backed at odds of 4/5 with Totesport.
