Arsenal vs Leicester City Preview: How to Watch on TV, Live Stream, Kick Off Time & Team News

05 July 2020 10:28

Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening, with the Gunners hoping to make it five wins in a row in all competitions.

Mikel Arteta's side have been buoyed by their recent victory over Champions League hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers, while their 2-1 victory over Sheffield United last week saw them through to the FA Cup semi-finals.

As for the Foxes, their wretched run of form of late came to an end with a much-needed 3-0 home triumph over Crystal Palace, a game which saw forward Jamie Vardy reach a milestone of 100 Premier League goals.

The visitors' recent form has somewhat opened the door for the chasing pack below them, yet a victory - and a league double - over the Gunners would go a long way to stabilising their European prospects.

Team News

As for Leicester, their home victory on Saturday was their first since the restart, having previously continued their poor run of results in 2020. It is testament to their early season form that they remain where they are in the table, but the Foxes will no doubt be keen to get back to winning ways as the race for a top-four spot heats up.

Here's a look at both sides' last five competitive fixtures:


Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-2 Arsenal (4/7)
Arsenal 4-0 Norwich City (1/7)
Sheffield United 1-2 Arsenal (28/6)
Southampton 0-2 Arsenal (25/6)
Brighton 2-1 Arsenal (20/6)

Leicester City

Leicester City 3-0 Crystal Palace (4/7)
Everton 2-1 Leicester City (1/7)
Leicester City 0-1 Chelsea (28/6)
Leicester City 0-0 Brighton (23/6)
Watford 1-1 Leicester City (20/6)


Although Leicester recorded a comfortable 2-0 win over the Gunners earlier this season, the recent inconsistent form of both sides makes this an exceptionally difficult game to call.

With Chelsea and Manchester United both keen for the Foxes to slip up, the pressure will be on to deliver a result against an Arsenal side who have European ambitions of their own.

Prediction: Arsenal 2-2 Leicester City
