Premier League

Sure predictions for Saturday 13th August,2022.

Arsenal

Arsenal, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-2 Premier League triumph against Crystal Palace.

In that match, Arsenal had 44% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Arsenal was Gabriel Martinelli (20'). For their opponents, Crystal Palace had 10 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. Marc Guéhi (85' Own goal) was the scorer for Crystal Palace.

It has been seldom in recent games that Arsenal have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Arsenal have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 8 goals in the process.

Leicester City

In their last game, Leicester City drew 2-2 in the Premier League tie with Brentford.

In that game, Leicester City had 55% possession and 14 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. For Leicester City, the goals were scored by Timothy Castagne (33') and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (46'). On the other side, Brentford had 8 shots on goal with 3 on target. Ivan Toney (62') and Josh Dasilva (86') scored for Brentford.

Leicester City have been effective going forward leading up to this encounter, having scored 16 goals in their last 6 matches. While their manager Brendan Rodgers will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Leicester City have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 5 of those same games. We shall soon see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.

Going into this encounter, Leicester City are unbeaten in their previous 2 away league matches.

Head to head 

A glance at their most recent head-to-head clashes stretching back to 07/07/2020 tells us that Arsenal have won 4 of them and Leicester City 1, with the number of drawn matches being 1.

13 goals were yielded between them in these games, with 10 for The Gunners and 3 created by The Foxes. That is an average goals per game value of 2.17.
