Check out our preview and betting predictions for this evening’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and Leicester City.

Arsenal welcome Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium in Gameweek 34 of top-flight English football this evening.

The Gunners are heading into the encounter on the back of four back-to-back wins in all competitions. Leicester, on the other hand, have won just two of their last nine Premier League outings.

With nine points between them and only 15 available until the end of the season, this is Arsenal’s final chance to enter the race for Champions League football next season.

What to bet on?

Handicap – Arsenal +1

The bookmakers see Arsenal as slight favorites before the start of this game and given the form of both sides, we simply have to agree with them.

However, we are not 100% sure that the Gunners will win this encounter, as Leicester City showed signs of life in the 3-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace.

That’s why are chose the Handicap – Arsenal +1 bet as our first suggestion, which means that either Mikel Arteta’s side is going to claim the victory or the game will finish without a winner.

Goals – Over 3,50

The clashes between Arsenal and Leicester City usually guarantee exciting football and many goals on both ends of the pitch.

We’ve seen 20 goals in their most recent five meetings in the Premier League, which is averagely four goals per game.

In three of these five matches the amount of goals went over the line of 3,50, including the last two games played at the Emirates Stadium.

Goalscorer – Jamie Vardy

Premier League’s leading goalscorer Jamie Vardy absolutely loves playing against Arsenal.

He has scored nine goals in nine league meetings with the Gunners, more than against any other team in top-flight English football.

Vardy found the net in four of the last five games he’s played against them and we expect to see him continue his impressive run with a goal this evening at the Emirates Stadium.
