Leicester vs Arsenal 28.02.2021
Leicester have proven to be the real deal this season. They have kept pace with the top four for the length of breadth of the season thus far. An impressive 3-1 victory over Champions Liverpool put on notice any pundits that may have doubted their ability to play the long game and maintain their top-four status. They followed it up with a 2-1 win away at Villa and are now tied with Man United on 49 points, with United edging them on goal difference.
Arsenal looked out of depth against a vastly superior Man City team in their last league outing which they lost 1-0 at home. They barely troubled the sturdy City defence and the scoreline failed to tell the story of how one-sided the game truly was.
This one is likely to be a close encounter and if past encounters are anything to go by, there is a huge potential for cheap fouls and cynical challenges here. The reverse which Leicester won 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium had 9 total bookings. We fancy there to be at least 5 bookings in this game.
