Leicester City vs Arsenal Preview

Leicester City and Arsenal will be locking horns in a much-awaited fixture at the King Power stadium on Sunday noon, February 28th. Leicester are currently placed at third on the Premier League points table, level with second-placed Manchester United, while Arsenal are well below in the 11th and 11 points adrift of the Top four space.

Brendan Rodgers's Foxes have accumulated 10 points from their last four Premier League outings, a spell that includes back-to-back wins over Liverpool and Aston Villa. But they will enter Sunday's King Power home clash on the back of a disappointing 2-0 loss to Slavia Praha that saw them exiting the Europa League in as early as the Round of 32 stage.

The defeat to Slavia Praha underlines their struggles at home where they have lost as many as five of their 12 League outings in an otherwise outstanding season so far.

After a brief seven-match unbeaten run in the December-January phase, Mikel Arteta's Arsenal seem to have returned to their usual ways, losing three of their previous four League fixtures. But Thursday night's Europa League win over Portuguese outfit Benfica will give the Gunners a lot of confidence going into Sunday's noon clash at Leicester.
