A trip to Arsenal hasn’t been an enjoyable experience for Leicester City in recent years. Even during their remarkable title winning campaign the Foxes lost both league meetings between these teams.
In fact, the Gunners have won the previous 11 top-flight matches between the teams in North London, and few would back against them extending that run on Monday night.
888Sport are 8/15 (1.53) about another home win and given that Unai Emery’s side are on a nine-match winning streak in all competitions, that’s hard to argue against.
Leicester are 5/1 (6.0) to win at the Emirates but the best bet for this game comes outside the match odds market.
Jamie Vardy ruled himself out of contention for England earlier this season so that the 31-year-old could focus on his Foxes form.
The striker thrives when given the space to test defenders for pace and often seems to raise his game against the elite sides, scoring 27 times in 46 Premier League appearances against the “Big Six”.
Games against Arsenal have been no exception, in fact, Vardy has six goals in his last six appearances against the Gunners and their recent defensive showings suggest another open game here.
Despite their impressive run of late, Emery’s side have only kept two Premier League clean sheets in eight outings this term. Fulham, Newcastle and Cardiff have all scored at least once and the Foxes should fancy their chances to finding some joy in the final third.
Both teams to score is just 8/15 (1.53) with 888Sport which suggests there is around a 65 per cent chance of neither side keeping a clean sheet – perfectly understandable given the stats.
Instead of that price though, take the 21/10 (3.10) on Vardy to score at anytime. That’s the joint-best available with 888Sport at the time of writing.
Vardy’s record against the best teams in the division is extremely impressive and having not played over the international break, the Leicester striker looks great value to score for a seventh time in seven games against Arsenal.
Jamie Vardy to score anytime at 21/10 (3.10) for a 1.5pt stake with 888Sport
