A huge game on Sunday as Arsenal host table toppers Leicester. Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) gives us his view.
Arsenal v Leicester | Sunday 12:00 | Sky Sports 1
Wow! What a game. What a game. I’ve been following football for three decades now and this Leicester story really is as epic and incredible as I can ever recall. Last week’s win over Man City was uplifting and this could take things onto an even higher level.
The Foxes come into this game five points clear at the top of the table and brimming with confidence after that astonishing win last week. This really is uncharted territory here as the bookmakers have made them the title favourites. The first side this century outside Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and the Manchester clubs to have that honour.
To be honest it’s not a game I’d have huge confidence getting involved with. It’s a game to savour and view rather than forming a financial view on. That’s my view anyway.
How Leicester play should be fascinating. They’re title favourites now and the crown is within reach. Will they crumble or fold? There’s been no evidence so far of the latter occurring so it seems folly to write them off here.
As for Arsenal I can see them putting in a strong performance. They’ve suffered just two defeats this season at the Emirates in the league. The opening day loss to West Ham and the unfortunate 10 man surrender to Chelsea last month.
But having said that they’re too short for me. As skinny as 8/11 in places they’re currently best price 3/4. It’s not a price I can possibly entertain against these amazing men.
Goals look the call here. No side has scored more than Leicester this season and Arsenal have scored Over 1.5 Team Goals in six of their last nine home matches.
It’s also worth remembering that when the sides last met in the early-autumn seven goals were spewed in what was a fantastic clash. Lets hope for more of the same on Sunday!
