WLB debutant Tom Beresford (@TomSportsJourno) analyses Tuesday night's Premier League match-up between Arsenal and Leicester at the Emirates.

Both Arsenal and Leicester enter this one fresh off a victory. Mikel Arteta’s hosts enjoyed a hard-fought 2-0 win over high-flying Wolves at Molineux on Saturday, whilst, a Jamie Vardy brace helped guide the Foxes to a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Crystal Palace.

This fixture, more often than not, presents plenty of goals. Four out of the last five meetings between the two sides have represented Over 2.5 Goals, with Leicester winning the last two tussles against Arteta’s side, without even conceding a goal.

But from an Arsenal perspective, the Gunners have only conceded one goal in their last four Premier League matches, scoring 10, so the North London outfit will most certainly be up for this one, and rightfully so.

Given Arsenal’s current form and their defensive improvements, I can’t see anything other than a victory for the hosts, here. In terms of value, my recommended bet for this one is Arsenal to win, with Over 2.5 Goals in the match, which is available at 21/10 with Coral.

As far as the Gunners’ home form goes, Arteta’s side are unbeaten in 2020 in the Premier League at the Emirates, with Leicester’s last victory on the road in the Premier League coming on New Year’s Day in a 3-0 victory over Newcastle at St James’ Park.

I expect goals in this one, with Arsenal running out eventual winners. Despite the hosts only conceding once in their last four matches, the firepower and threat of Vardy could really test the Gunners’ newfound defensive qualities. Therefore, an Arsenal win with Both Teams To Score could also be a great selection at 29/10 (Coral).
