Leicester vs Arsenal prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out?

Leicester City welcome Arsenal to the King Power Stadium as two of the Premier League‘s top five clash.

Leicester have begun the season superbly behind a settled side with strength throughout, and could move into second this weekend if results go their way.

Arsenal are six points behind their opponents and in a rather different mood, with Granit Xhaka sacked as captain after his Crystal Palace outburst and Unai Emery in real danger of losing his job.

Xhaka is not yet ready to return to the Arsenal team this weekend, while Dani Ceballos has a hamstring issue.

Here is everything you need to know about the game.

Odds

Leicester EVENS

Draw 11/4

Arsenal 27/10

Prediction

Arsenal look a club in real strife, and Unai Emery a manager increasingly close to losing his job. They will find it tough at the King Power Stadium against an excellent Leicester side.

3-1 to Leicester is our prediction.

When is it?

Kick-off at the King Power Stadium is at 5.30pm GMT on November 9.

How can I watch it?

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League, with coverage beginning at 5pm.​

Sky customers can watch the game via the Sky Go app or online player.

Team News

Granit Xhaka is not ready to return to the Arsenal side after being stripped of the captaincy, while Dani Ceballos has a hamstring complaint and thus will be absent, too.

Leicester have no new injury concerns, and Brendan Rodgers could select the same team that beat Crystal Palace last weekend.

Predicted line-ups

Leicester: Kasper Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu, Ben Chilwell; Wilfried Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Youri Tielemans, James Maddison, Harvey Barnes; Jamie Vardy.
