A huge relief of the pressure that was built up on Arsene Wenger will have been felt after their extra time victory in the semi final of the FA Cup against Manchester City. Goals from Nacho Monreal and Alexis Sanchez helped them to victory at the weekend and we are backing them to claim a vital three points in their stalling bid for the top four when they host Leicester City on Wednesday.
With both teams scoring in 60% of the Gunners home games this season and 62% of Leicesters away games, we are mixing the home win with a both teams to score bet, which is available at 7/4 with bet365.
Goals have been a fairly regular occurrence for both of these sides of late and Arsenal’s last eight league games has seen a total of 27 goals being scored, which averages at over three goals per game. It’s not as if it’s been all Arsenal either, as they have just two clean sheets in those games and both teams have scored in five of those eight fixtures.
Like their hosts, Leicester fans have been treated to plenty of goals and their last eight games have seen a total of 29 goals scored. They also have an identical record to Arsenal in terms of both teams scoring and five of their last eight fixtures have finished with both teams scoring.
Since Craig Shakespeare took charge at Leicester they have seen a reversal of their fortunes and they have pulled themselves out of danger and into a comfortable position in the league. Despite this improvement, the Foxes still only have one win away from home in the league and they have conceded two goals or more in each of their last four away matches in the Premier League.
Our Prediction: Both Teams To Score
