Leicester are up against Arsenal on Sunday. Arsenal are currently 5th and in battle for CL. A great turn of their tide early in the season has seen them fly to the challenge of Europe.
Leicester do have struggled at The Emirates over the years and to see any hope of a win looks difficult. But of course on a top day we certainly hope for a point.
Date: 13.03.22, Venue: The Emirates, Match: Premier League
After a good result against Rennes at home and a bit of a rise in form and a number of clean sheets, confidance are better and the team will probably more or less be the same, but we believe that Kelechi Ihenacho will start and then Brendan Rodgers will leave Patson Daka on the bench.
James Maddison also looks to get a look in but we do believe that the current trio of Dewsbury-Hall, Tielemans and Ndidi will be in the starting line-up.

TCF – Favorite Preview:
Looking in the back mirror Leicester do have a number of great results v. Arsenal and at home, but away at Highbury or The Emirates it’s been frustrating. That 1-0 win in October 2020 was the first since 1973 so it’s been difficult. Jamie Vardy and Mike Stringfellow the two last goalscorers in a winning game with a gap of 47 years between them.
This season looks to again establish Arsenal with an exciting team in the top of English football and the way Mikel Arteta has transformed his team is great to watch, something we do believe Brendan Rodgers can learn from with young players playing the first violin.
Leicester will go into the game as favorites and it will be interesting to see the line-up and how Brendan Rodgers will approach the game and hopefully get all three points and no repeat of the happenings in the same clash last season.
There are a number of players with a past in both camps and one will most certainly be playing tomorrow, Kasper Schmeichel. The Dane played a season at Leeds before his signed for Leicester and has since then played more than 400 league games and been outstanding as a fox.
Other names to mention at Paul Dickov, Steve Guppy and Julian Joachim who all had short spells at Elland Road and a better and more major career with Leicester. To look up former players with a life in both camps, click here.
