The Gunners are mounting an unlikely charge to qualify for next season’s Champions League after winning at Wolves, while Leicester have steadied themselves after a tricky start since the league resumed by easing past Crystal Palace.

Golden boot contenders Jamie Vardy and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang go head to head here also.

What are the odds?

Arsenal 5/4

Draw 5/2

Leicester 21/10


Arsenal are trending nicely and Arteta is starting to see an understanding from his players as to what he craves from his team. Leicester present another challenge, but even after winning against Palace, not one that should be intimidating given the impressive victory at Molineux last time out. The Gunners look to have more cutting edge and all of a sudden some resilience without the ball. We’ll go for a home win and the latest sign that Arteta is the man to inspire a resurgence at the Emirates. 2-1.
