We know many will be surprised this post is coming pretty early considering the EPL Matchday 2 is scheduled to commence on Saturday.
Well, this is based on the many demands we get from you, our esteemed readers, on posts related to “Match Analysis”.
We hope the information we provide will be helpful enough to meet your different needs.
With the above well said, let’s get started as we look at the 1st of the 5 EPL games we will be analyzing this week.
EPL (ARSENAL VS LEICESTER CITY)
The Gunners will take on the Foxes in 1 of the 7 EPL games scheduled for Saturday.
Certainly a must-watch fixture for every EPL lover, isn’t it?
I can bet many will be tipping Mikel Arteta’s men to come out victorious as well.
But before you do, let’s take a look at stats favoring either side.
Home Advantage: You are definitely not letting slide, are you?
Mikel Arteta’s men are the host for today’s game, and this should be counted in their favor considering their familiarity with this terrain.
Furthermore, this terrain has been a strong fortress for the Gunners against the Foxes in their last 5 fixtures.
They’ve managed 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in those.
Will you be surprised if they get another victory or draw this time?
Head To Head: If you think the 1st point is strong enough, wait till you read this.
The Gunners have only suffered a loss in the 5 overall meetings between both sides, winning the remaining 4.
In fact, the last 3 meetings have all ended in wins for Mikel Arteta’s men.
At this point, I can bet you will have started making your conclusion on them, Arsenal, winning this fixture.
Current Form: One more point for the Gunners before I move to Leicester City.
Another point you definitely can’t ignore.
Mikel Arteta’s men have been in scintillating form since the beginning of the season, recording a 100% official win rate till now.
Even the likes of Everton, Sevilla, and Chelsea could do nothing about this.
If the above teams couldn’t find a way to break them, do you think the Foxes can?
EPL (LEICESTER CITY)
Current Form: Unfortunately, this is the only point we could get for Brendan Rodgers’ men.
Although the Foxes gave up their 2 nil lead to the Bees on Matchday 1, their performance from the Preseason still speaks a lot for them.
They got 4 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss, and also currently unbeaten in their last 6 games. You can bet they will be going into this game with some huge motivation.
Do you think they can get something out of this game with this singular fact?
Judging from the points we have above, Arsenal coming out of this game with a win or at least a draw, shouldn’t be difficult.
However, don’t grow overconfident, ignoring the fact that “this is Football and anything can happen”.
Either way, I expect an entertaining game.
Let’s get your thought and prediction on this game, we will definitely love to hear from you.
