With five wins in their last six Premier League outings, Leicester City are flying high, with one point more than they had at the same stage in their 2015/16 title-winning season.
Those five wins saw Leicester average exactly 4.0 goals per match, with four of them seeing the ‘Foxes’ win the second half to-nil by two or more goals.
The ‘Foxes’ have also won their last four home league fixtures, outscoring their opponents by a 4:1 ratio within that sequence.
Of potential relevance, Leicester humiliated Arsenal by a three-goal margin in last season’s corresponding fixture.
That loss was also Arsenal’s second in succession here, with the ‘Gunners’ conceding exactly twice beyond the 75th minute in each visit.
It also forms part of a disgraceful run, which has seen Arsenal recover just one solitary point (of 27) from the last nine occasions they have conceded first on the road in a league match.
Going into this one, Arsenal have won just one of their last five PL matches at any venue.
That sequence includes a return of just one point from the last possible six on the road, with the ‘Gunners’ losing the first half 1-0 both times.
Players to watch: Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has averaged 1.5 goals per-match against Arsenal across his last two PL home H2Hs, with all of his goals coming beyond the 75th minute.
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is responsible for every one of the Gunners’ five PL away points, with three of his four away league goals coming in the 31st-60th minute period.
