Robbie Savage’s confident prediction of Arsenal v Leicester

Robbie Savage

Robbie Savage expects Leicester City to build on their win against Manchester City with victory over Arsenal in the Premier League next weekend.

Robbie Savage predicted on the BBC Radio 5 live 606 show on Saturday evening (February 6) that Leicester City will win against Arsenal next weekend.

Leicester will take on Arsenal away from home at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League.

The Foxes will head into the game in North London on the back of a stunning 3-1 victory over Manchester City away from home at the Etihad Stadium.

Former Leicester midfielder Savage believes that Claudio Ranieri’s side will get the better of the Gunners.

“Next weekend Arsenal away, Leicester City have scored more away goals away than they have at home, they have won more away matches than they have at home,” said Savage on the BBC Radio 5 live 606 show on Saturday evening (February 6). “Next weekend if Mertesacker is fit and Koscielny, Vardy, Mahrez, I think, will go there and destroy them."

Leicester are at the top of the Premier League table at the moment with 53 points from 25 matches.

The Foxes are five points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, while Arsenal are currently fourth in the standings with 45 points.

The Gunners, though, have a game in hand, which is against Bournemouth away from home at the Vitality Stadium later today.

Arsenal are expected to win this afternoon, but if they drop points, then they will be under huge pressure to beat Leicester next weekend.
