Prediction

Arsenal are trending nicely and Arteta is starting to see an understanding from his players as to what he craves from his team. Leicester present another challenge, but even after winning against Palace, not one that should be intimidating given the impressive victory at Molineux last time out. The Gunners look to have more cutting edge and all of a sudden some resilience without the ball. We’ll go for a home win and the latest sign that Arteta is the man to inspire a resurgence at the Emirates. 2-1.
