Our prediction for this Premier League match:
High-flying Arsenal will be aiming to remain in the Champions League berth when they face Leicester City at Emirates Stadium on Sunday evening. The Gunners are on a four-match winning run, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as hot favourites to beat the Foxes on home soil. Many football experts expected that Aubameyang would be sorely missed in the second half of the season, but Mikel Arteta’s men look unstoppable at the moment.
Alexandre Lacazette, who provided two assists for his teammates in a 3-2 win over Watford, will continue to lead the line for the capital club, while summer signing Tomiyasu is a major doubt. Brendan Rodgers’ troops, on the other hand, defeated Leeds United thanks to Harvey Barnes’ goal, but seeing that the Whites had a number of clear-cut opportunities to score at King Power Stadium, we are tempted to put our money on Arsenal this time out. To make things even worse for the visiting side, key attacker Jamie Vardy misses out with a knee injury.
Highlighted Player (Alexandre Lacazette):
Alexandre Lacazette is a hometown boy of Lyon, a powerful striker who went through the youth ranks of the French side to become one of the most important players for Les Gones. The 25-year-old forward was also a member of all France national team selections becoming a European champion at the age of 19 by scoring the winner in the final against Spain.
This goal gave him a reputation of a big game player, one he went on to uphold on various occasions at his club. Lacazette is a hard working forward an accomplished finisher of the ball able to score from different positions. The most prolific striker in his side and among the top ones in the Ligue 1, Alexandre Lacazette scored more than 20 league goals last two seasons on a trot.
Constantly linked with a move away from Lyon, Alexandre Lacazette refuses to speak about anything other than his football and is leaving all the talk to the football pitch.
