Leicester City host English Premier League leaders Arsenal in a highly anticipated encounter on Saturday as the visitors look to regain cruise control.
Arsenal have only won one game in their last five outings, a 4-2 comeback victory away at Aston Villa last weekend.
They remain atop the English Premier League with 54 points, two more than closest title challengers Manchester City.
Leicester on the other hand are coming from a forgettable 3-0 defeat to Manchester United, leaving them in 14th with 24 points.
The Foxes have lost five games from winning positions this season and haven’t won any of their last 18 games against teams starting the day at the top of the table.
Arsenal hold the record for most league goals scored away from home this season (24) and have not lost to Leicester since 2020.
A 4-2 success over Leicester in August marked Arsenal’s fourth Premier League win in a row against their opponents.
With a win, Arsenal can make it three consecutive away league wins against the Foxes for just the second time in their history.
Can Arsenal open up a five-point gap at the top of the table before Man City take to the field later against Bournmeouth?
What time does Leicester vs Arsenal start?
