Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on King Power Stadium when reigning champions Leicester City take on last season’s runners-up Arsenal in what is expected to be the most entertaining clash of Saturday’s program. The Foxes suffered a shocking 3-1 loss to Hull City in their opener, meaning that Mahrez, Vardy and Co. are desperate to grab something from the game against Arsenal. The Gunners suffered a 4-3 loss to Liverpool at their Emirates Stadium, but it has to be noted that Arsene Wenger could not count on his key defenders for the match. Considering that both teams will go for a win this time out, there is every chance we will see goals galore in Leicester. Ten goals were netted in previous two meetings between the two teams in the Premier League and, taking everything into account, we predict that both sides are going to find the net in Saturday’s showdown.
Highligted Player (Andy King):
Born in Barnstaple, England on 29 October 1988, Andy King is a Welsh professional footballer famous for only representing one club in his career. The midfielder had began his youth career at Chelsea, but moved to Leicester in 2004 and he was handed his first professional contract in May 2007. He has since represented Foxes in League One, Championship and the Premier League, making over 300 league appearances and scoring more than 55 goals in the process. While he was not exactly a first team regular during the 2015/2016 season that will forever remained etched in the memory of Leicester City fans, King made over 20 league outings to help the Foxes lift the coveted trophy for the first time in history. Meanwhile, he has made more than 30 appearances for the Welsh national team, starting no fewer than five games as the Dragons secured their place at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title. Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since. Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
