Leicester vs Arsenal by Rahul
Arsenal despite their defensive headaches which might continue into this week, really showed decent flow going forward. While they had the opening goal and then went 4-1 down; they came back to 4-3 to be within 10 minutes of securing a draw against Liverpool. Arsenal will be missing Iwobi and Ramsey from this weekend, and will replace them with Cazorla and Chamberlain to come in their place, both of whom showed great glimpses of form when they came off the bench. The defence will continue to remain shaky with the likes of Koscielny possibly coming back and partnering Chambers at the centre, which still leaves them vulnerable at the back.
Neither team is coming into this game with defensive security as Leicester have leaked 4 goals in their 2 competitive fixtures this season and 9 goals in 3 games during the International Champions Cup. On the other hand, Arsenal have conceded 4 last weekend to Liverpool while 5 goals in 5 pre-season games as well. I think both teams will be looking to attack the defence of the opposition who are lacking confidence, while their attacking prowess will be on display. I am backing both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in this fixture.
