Arsenal seek record win against Leicester

By Daily Sports Nigeria on August 13, 2022

Arsenal can equal their longest Premier League winning streak against Leicester of four matches between February 1999 and December 2000.

Leicester’s solitary victory in their past 25 away league fixtures against Arsenal was by 1-0 in October 2020, with Jamie Vardy scoring (D4, L20).

The Gunners beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on the opening night of the current Premier League season but they haven’t won their first two games without conceding since 1971-72.

Arsenal’s only clean sheet in their final eight league matches at Emirates Stadium last season came in a 2-0 win against Leicester in March.

They have lost their opening Premier League home fixture in six of the past 11 campaigns (W4, D1).

However, their tally of 41 points at home in 2021-22 was the third best in the division, behind Liverpool and Manchester City. The top three and Brighton were the only visiting teams to win at Arsenal.

Gabriel Jesus has scored five goals in seven league games against Leicester, all of which were victories while playing for Manchester City.

Gabriel Martinelli is looking to score in three consecutive Premier League appearances for the first time.

Leicester’s only clean sheet in their 26 most recent away Premier League matches came in a 2-0 win at Burnley last March.

The Foxes let slip a two-goal lead in their opening match against Brentford and have dropped 23 points from winning positions since the beginning of last season. Only Southampton and Newcastle, with 32 and 24 respectively, have fared worse.

Jamie Vardy has scored 11 top-flight goals in 14 appearances against Arsenal, a tally only bettered by Harry Kane (13) and Wayne Rooney (12).

Vardy has scored 99 Premier League goals since his 30th birthday.

James Maddison has been involved in eight goals in his past five Premier League games, with four goals and four assists.
