Arsenal v Leicester: match preview | premier league

Arsenal have a big chance against Leicester to further cement their grip on fourth place. One of Manchester United and Tottenham will lose ground as they face off on Saturday and West Ham will host a side from Aston Villa in scintillating form. Mikel Arteta’s side are on their own and if successful it would be Arsenal’s first five-game winning streak in the league since Unai Emery’s legendary 22-game unbeaten streak in 2018. Rather than feeling as a complete stroke of luck, however, it looks like an Arsenal side built on solid foundations, foundations that will be delighted that Emirates threat Jamie Vardy is injured. Leicester have recently found their own defensive stability with two clean sheets, but they will be tested by the pace and trickery of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli. Graham Searles
