Arsenal v. Leicester
Arsenal v. Leicester Betting Odds, Picks & Predictions
The Round 2 English Premier League between fierce rivals Arsenal and Leicester City will kick off on Saturday, August 13 at 3pm London time (4pm CST) at Emirates Stadium. The Family Enclosure Area has sold out already and tickets are scarce. Arsenal will host Brendan Rodgers‘ Foxes in the hopes that they can replicate the win they notched against the same opponent back in March of 2022 (2-0).
Arsenal v. Leicester historical numbers heavily favor the home team. In 32 head-to-head matches, the Gunners walked away with 19 victories over Leicester’s mere 5 while 8 games ended up in a draw. And Leicester only won once at Emirates Stadium during that entire time span.
Karl Hein Promoted to Senior Squad
Could Karl Hein Emerge as Arsenal’s New Star Goalkeeper?
Who is #31 on the Arsenal squad and where did this man come from? Arsenal have a policy of allocating numbers 1-35 to the senior squad, which means that youngster Karl Hein just made the senior squad! The 20-year-old made two clean sheet appearances against Malta (where he saved a penalty kick) and against San Marino during the Gunners’ international break.
Karl Jakob Hein is an Estonian goalkeeper who also plays for the Estonian national team. Will Mikel Arteta line him up against Leicester City? Probably not, unless Aaron Ramsdale (who has been given the number 1 shirt ahead of the 2022-23 season) gets injured.
Our prediction for this game? Arsenal should be able to repeat the same win it notched back in March: 2-0.
