Leicester vs Arsenal
There are two matches for both clubs till the end of Premier league and at first sight both teams are fighting for nothing, only for their glory.
Leicester with Claude Puel didn't impress especially in the last months. They don't know what home win in Premier league means till 20th of Januari, when they beat Waftord 2:0. In their last two matches they were more than awful, they looked like they want to waste much energy and are playing against his manager like they wanted to lose and sack him as fast as they can. There are rumours that David Wagner will replace him after the end of the season, but it's still not confirmed. And waht a moment after 5:0 loss against Crystal Palace and 0:2 against West Ham to host Arsenal which team destroyed Burnley 5:0 in their last match with outstanding performance in all parts of the team.
It's interesting to mention that Arsenal have only losses as guests in premier league till the start of 2018 and that's their perfect chance to change that. In fact they deserved in some of the matches not to lose, but even luck was not on their side and lost some of the matches in the deep end of the games. That's stats only when we talk about Premier league- in EL they beat Ostersunds and Milan as guests which speaks a lot what was their real priority- EL trophy but Atletico succeeded to eliminate them and Arsenal will play again in EL during the next season. Believe me, maybe some of the Arsenal players don't love Wenger, especially these ones, who don't have enough chances and minuted on the pitch, but they respect him and no matter who will start today(the coach is expected to start with their optimal and best line-up), they will play for Wenger in their last two matches against Leicester and Huddersfield and I won't be suprised if they earn two convincing wins. They don't want only to stop the negative row of losses as guests, but to make classy send-off of the person who coached them for more than 20 years.
When we add the fact that Wenger doesn't have a loss against Leicester with Arsenal during the years and in the recent years it's not a big deal for Arsenal to take the three points against them, no matter easier or harder, don't know what else to expect here than a win for Arsenal.
Finally, to make the things even worse for Leicester, they will miss almost one team of players with James, Huth, Ndidi, Amartey all out, while Diabate, Schmeichel, Dragovic, Okazaki, Sipmson and Chilwell are all doubtful. Arsenal will miss the same players- Cazorla, Elneny, Koscielny + Ozil, which will not be such a big deal, because I think his form dropped a lot and it's better player like Iwobi to start with Xhaka and Ramsey in midfield in the last two matches. I like Ozil but everyone has ups and downs in his career. If we just look at Leicester predicted line-up for today's match- Andre Silva is not a player for Leicester and England football at all, Choudhurry is not even good for substitution in this club, Iborra is creative, but really think England football is not keen with his abilities, he would be much effective in Spain for example..the defense looks more than terrible in the recent weeks. Hope not to see embarrassment here, but away win looks more than attractive pick here!
