class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With both teams in prolific form, Al Hain-Cole expects plenty of goalmouth action when the Foxes welcome Rodgers' men to the King Power Stadium
After making slow starts to the Premier League season, Leicester and Arsenal are both on the rise as they meet at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers’ men won just two of their opening seven fixtures but have now followed up an impressive home victory over Manchester United with a hard-fought three points away to Brentford.
Leicester City vs Arsenal latest odds
Ahead of their guests on goal difference, they are 29/20 (2.45) favourites with bet365 or move clear and into the European places by coming out on top here.
The Gunners lost their first three league games of the campaign but come into this clash unbeaten in six and can be backed at 15/8 (2.88) to make it 17 points from a possible 21 with a victory in this one.
Just one of the last 10 meetings between this pair has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out in this one.
Leicester City vs Arsenal goalscorer
Jamie Vardy looks a strong first goal scorer bet at 11/2 (6.50) after hitting 11 goals in 13 appearances against this opposition, while Kelechi Iheanacho is a 13/2 (7.50) shot to double his league tally for the season with the opener.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the 9/2 (5.50) favourite to break the deadlock following goals in four of his last six league appearances, with Alexander Lacazette available at 11/2 (6.50) after scoring three times so far this season.
Leicester City vs Arsenal preview
Having failed to score in their opening three league fixtures, Mikel Arteta’s team seems to have found its touch in front of goal by striking 13 times in the last six games in all competitions.
In confident spirits, they will back themselves to fire past a home defence that has gone eight games without a clean sheet in the league – conceding 15 times in total during that run.
However, they may have more trouble in keeping quiet a Foxes attack that has scored 10 goals in the last four league games, with Vardy in excellent shape for a game against his favourite opponent after hitting the net seven times in nine league games this season.
Leicester City vs Arsenal predictions
All in all, odds of 4/5 (1.80) offer solid value on over 2.5 goals being scored for Leicester’s ninth game in 11, as well as a fourth league game in five for Arsenal.
