ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL ANALYSIS
- Arsenal has won 23 of their last 25 home matches against Liverpool.
- Liverpool have scored less than 2.5 goals in their last five matches.
- Liverpool have won 13 of their last 14 games against Arsenal.
As things stand, two positions and four points separate the two struggling sides in the table, with Liverpool currently in seventh position and Arsenal languishing in ninth ahead of their 30th league match of the season. Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino returned to training in the middle of the week and may be available for selection on Saturday against Arsenal.
Arsenal have gone unbeaten in their last four Premier League games, winning against Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur. Arteta’s side has lost just one of their last eight top-flight matches at the Emirates, being the 1-0 loss to Manchester City on February 21.
Liverpool has only won two of their last eight Premier League matches, losing the other six, and surprisingly, only one team has scored in Liverpool’s last seven matches since Leicester City defeated them 3-1 on February 13. With all five of Liverpool’s most recent top-flight victories coming on the road, the Reds could tie a 65-year-old club record if they win at the Emirates this weekend, as their six victories between February and August 1955 all came on rival turf.
PICK – Liverpool to win or draw and over 1.5 Goals @1.60 odds
LEICESTER VS MANCHESTER CITY ANALYSIS
- Man City have won 17 of their last 18 premier league matches
- In 8 of their last 10 games, Man City has scored at least two goals.
- In Leicester’s previous 4 home games, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored.
- Before the break, Leicester had won three games in a row, including one against Manchester United.
- Kelechi Iheanacho has scored seven goals in his last four games for Leicester.
Just 16 games stand between Pep Guardiola’s team and a place in English football history as they attempt to win both domestic and European titles.
Leicester City is having another good season under Brendan Rodgers’ management, and it appears that the Foxes will finish in the top four this time. As things stand, the former Premier League champions are in third position, five points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea.
Leicester City came from behind to beat Manchester City 5-2 in the reverse fixture at the Etihad in September, with Jamie Vardy scoring a hat-trick.
Kelechi Iheanacho is the player to watch after being named Premier League Player of the Month for March. Iheanacho is nearly invincible at the moment for Leicester City, having scored nine goals in his last nine games.
When he plays against his former club Manchester City, Iheanacho’s success will decide which team wins in the end. The Nigerian striker will almost certainly be raring to go against the league leaders, so expect fireworks.
