Arsenal will try to secure its position in the race for a Champions League spot on Sunday when it hosts Leicester City in an English Premier League match in London. The Gunners (15-3-7) finished eighth in the Premier League last season but could finish as high as third if they keep rolling. They entered this weekend in fourth place with 48 points, one ahead of Manchester United and eight behind Chelsea. Arsenal has three games in hand on Man U and two on the Blues, and it has not lost a league game since New Year’s Day. Leicester (9-6-10) is in the 12th spot in the EPL table, but it has lost just one of its last seven games across all competitions.

Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET at Emirates Stadium. Caesars Sportsbook lists Arsenal as the -205 favorite (risk $205 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in its latest Arsenal vs. Leicester City odds, with Leicester the +550 underdog. A draw is priced at +340 and the over-under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Now, Green has broken down Arsenal vs. Leicester City from every angle and just locked in his coveted picks and Premier League predictions. You can head to SportsLine now to see his EPL picks. Here are the betting lines and trends for Leicester City vs. Arsenal:

Arsenal will aim to consolidate their hold on fourth spot in the Premier League table when Leicester City visit the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Mikel Arteta‘s side survived a scare to overcome Watford 3-2 last time out, while the Foxes arrive having claimed a 2-0 advantage in the first leg of their Europa Conference League last-16 tie with Rennes.

The goal of the day award may have been deservedly claimed by Watford’s Cucho Hernandez, but Arsenal’s young prospects came up with three eye-catching strikes of their own to propel themselves into fourth place after a five-goal thriller at Vicarage Road.

Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli all came up with the goods for the Gunners – who held on after a nervy few moments following Moussa Sissoko‘s finish – and a spot in the Champions League is now Arsenal’s to lose.

The Gunners remain in fourth place at the time of writing but will likely have dropped down a place before kickoff with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur facing off on Saturday, but knowing that at least one of their top-four rivals will drop points can only be a good thing.

Written off by many in the top-four race before the season began, Arsenal have now strung together a four-game winning streak in the Premier League – averaging two goals per game in that stretch – but Arteta was less than happy after the Watford win as his side once again won by just a one-goal margin.

Not since the Boxing Day thumping of Norwich City have Arsenal won by more, but a tally of 25 points from their last 10 games is the joint-highest in the league behind Manchester City, and only the champions and Liverpool have performed better at home than the optimistic Gunners this term.

Things may finally be looking up for this patchy Leicester City side, who followed up their 1-0 victory over Jesse Marsch‘s Leeds United with a professional showing in the Conference League against Rennes at the King Power.

Marc Albrighton struck first for the Foxes on the 30-minute mark before substitute Kelechi Iheanacho made sure of the result in the last knockings of the encounter, with Brendan Rodgers‘s side now boasting a healthy advantage before their journey to Roazhon Park.

Also stringing together a four-game winning run ahead of this game – in all competitions rather than the Premier League – Leicester have a top-half finish firmly in their sights and currently occupy 12th spot, just two points behind 10th-placed Southampton with three games in hand.

Failure to collect silverware or qualify for Europe will no doubt go down as a disappointing season for an injury-hit Leicester, who have won just one of their last seven top-flight matches away from home and may seek to prioritise European success amid their dismal domestic fortunes.

Rodgers did steer his side to a 1-0 win at the Emirates last term, but Arsenal prevailed 2-0 at the King Power back in October – thanks in no small part to the heroics of Aaron Ramsdale – and the absence of Arsenal’s nemesis Jamie Vardy will play right into the hosts’ hands.

Team News

Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe is expected to be back in the squad this weekend after a bout of COVID-19, but Takehiro Tomiyasu remains a doubt with his troublesome calf issue.

The Gunners are otherwise in good shape for the meeting with Leicester and have no need to alter a winning formula, with Cedric Soares once again preparing to deputise for Tomiyasu.

Despite failing to find the back of the net for the sixth Premier League game running, Alexandre Lacazette provided two assists at Vicarage Road and will expect to fend off competition from Eddie Nketiah for the number nine spot.

As for Leicester, Vardy – whose 11 goals in meetings with Arsenal is the most against any side he has faced – has picked up a fresh knee injury and will not be available for the Emirates trip.

Jonny Evans, Ryan Bertrand and Timothy Castagne are keeping Vardy company in the treatment room, and it remains to be seen if Ricardo Pereira will be fit for Sunday after a setback in his recovery from a thigh issue.

Wesley Fofana‘s potential comeback against Rennes was ruined by a positive COVID-19 test, and the 21-year-old – who has just recovered from a devastating fractured fibula – will likely be available for the second leg with the French side rather than the clash with the Gunners.

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Lacazette

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Justin, Amartey, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Tielemans; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho
