Arsenal look to remain in the race for the top four when they are up against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this weekend. The Gunners have taken a major blow in the top four race and they no longer hold destiny after failing to get back into the fourth place following the midweek action. Arsenal have one point behind Chelsea and the Gunners now rely on the Blues or Spurs to drop points in the remaining three games. Leicester City still have an outside chance of finishing in the seventh place, which could still provide European football, but the team are three points away from Wolves. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leicester City picked up a valuable point against West Ham after coming back twice in the match. The 2-2 draw with the Hammers was the second successive game without a win for Brendan Rodgers’ men, who lost 1-0 against Newcastle in the previous game.
Arsenal lost back-to-back league games for the first time since the opening weekend after a 3-1 loss against Wolves. The defeat severely dents Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in the top four.
Arsenal picked up a 3-1 victory over Leicester in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium. This was a revenge for the Gunners, who lost by a similar score in the recent visit to the King Power Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a draw.

Arsenal have been looking tired in recent weeks and the club has lost three league matches in four. Unai Emery also has to focus on the Europa League semi-final against Valencia on Thursday night and this match may be Arsenal’s best bet to qualify for Europe next season. Leicester are winless in the last two games, but the club’s home form has been generally good under Rodgers. The Irishman, though, has only managed two wins over Arsenal in 10 attempts. Our preview would pick a draw.

Leicester City win odds: 2.87
Arsenal win odds: 2.37
Correct Score odds
Arsenal have gone through a poor run when it comes to away matches of late. Leicester have been offensively brilliant and the tired legs of Arsenal would not be able to keep track with James Maddison’s intelligent movement. Most of the recent encounters between Arsenal and Leicester have been high-scoring. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-2 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last three games between Arsenal and Leicester have produced more than 3.5 goals in total. Arsenal’s defensive lapses have been profound in recent weeks and a team like Leicester – with the pace of Jamie Vardy and creativity of Maddison – can profit from the same. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jamie Vardy has an exceptional record against Arsenal after managing six goals in just eight games. The former England international was not on the scoresheet in the reverse fixture at the Emirates Stadium, but he came up with three goals in the two matches last season. Vardy scored Leicester’s opener in the draw with West Ham and he remains a focus point for the team under Rodgers. Our first goalscorer prediction would go with Jamie Vardy.
