Leicester City host Arsenal at the King Power Stadium on Saturday in the Premier League, as the hosts look to continue their solid start to the Premier League campaign.
The Foxes continued their good start to their season with a 2-2 draw at Stoke City. Claudio Ranieri’s side came back from two goals down to rescue a point at the Britannia Stadium.
Goals from Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy secured a point for the Foxes at a difficult ground to visit for opposition teams. Vardy has now scored in his last three games and the England international has four goals in the Premier League this season.
However, teammate Mahrez can eclipse that record, with five goals and three assists in the Foxes first six games of the season.
The visitors have endured a difficult start to their Premier League campaign. The Gunners have now suffered consecutive defeats against Dinamo Zagreb and last time out in the league against Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.
The trip to the champions was always going to be difficult, but it was made even more difficult by Arsene Wenger’s side being reduced to nine men, with Gabriel and Santi Cazorla both dismissed. Arsenal will curse their luck though, as Chelsea striker Diego Costa was lucky to stay on the pitch after an arm in the face of Laurent Koscielny.
The Gunners have struggled to find the net this season, scoring just five goals in their first six Premier League games. The north London club has failed to score in half of their league games so far.
