ARSENAL VS LEICESTER

LEAGUE: ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

VENUE: EMIRATES STADIUM

TIME:2145HRS

DATE:26-02-2017

Arsenal's disappointing form of run ended last weekend after qualifying for the FA Cup final . Monreal and Alexis Sanchez scored in extra time to enable the London giants progress through to the final where they will face off with Chelsea FC.

This win in the FA semi-final saw the increased pressure on Arsene Wenger to resign as manager reduce slightly as they progressed to the final.

They have high hope for finishing in the top four spot and will be out to pick up three points from Leicester today.A win today will increase their chances of finishing in the top four.This is expected to be a tough clash as Leicester City FC will not be easy to beat.

The two teams have scored many goals in their matches, so we expect this match to be an entertaining one with plenty of goals, roughly averaging more than three goals per match.

Five of their past eight fixtures have seen both teams score .Leicester City has also scored 29 goals in their past eight matches in all competitions.

Leicester have successfully been able to move from the danger zone after firing Claudio Ranieri whose tactics seemed not to have been working out very well.

Craig Shakespeare has successfully been enabling to see the club through this, under his tenure, he has also written history by propelling the club to the UEFA Champions League quarter-final for the first time since the club was founded.
Despite this success, the club has won only one game this season something not expected of former champions.
