Expert Analysis and Prediction
Look, there’s no sense in beating around the bush with my pick on this EPL pairing. Arsenal is struggling mightily to both, find the back of the net – and stop the opposition. That’s clearly not the case for red-hot Leicester City, who are both, putting goals on the board consistently, while routinely shutting down their opponents. Jamie Vardy has been nothing short of phenomenal for Leicester City and the Wolves are playing at home.
I say, keep ti simple and back Leicester Coty to take care of business at home to get the two-goal win at the very minimum. In addition tot hat, I also like the Over 2.5 total gols in this one. Each of the last four EPL meetings between these two have finished over the 2.5-goal total while nine of Leicester City’s 14 matches in all competitions have gone over the total.
