Last time, when they encountered with Arsenal, they were demolished by Arsene Wenger’s brutal squad with a score-line 5-2. However, Leicester were not stopped after that defeat. Instead they became even more furious follow that defeat.
Leicester City are standing on the first position with 53 points and they are 5 points ahead from their very next competitor, Tottenham Hotspur, who are standing on 2nd position with 48 points. Arsenal are currently standing on 3rd position with 48 points but the goal difference has made them 3rd.
However, Arsenal are going to host Leicester City on 14th February at Emirated Stadium. Before that match, you should know that Arsenal are unbeaten against Leicester City since last four matches.

Can Vardy and Mahrez end their winning drought against Arsenal?
However, now Leicester City have some awesome players like Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and more. These two combo is just super in terms of skill, co-ordination, placements and utilization by the coach, Claudio Ranieri. He is making use of this player with full effort and as a result, both of them are getting goals continuously.
Currently, Jamie Vardy is standing on the 1st position with 18 goals and Mahrez has scored 14 goals in 24 matches. On the other hand, the goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, is another strength of Leicester City as he has conceded only 27 goals in 29 matches. He also has 8 clean sheets, which is not bad.
Can Arsenal win over Leicester City? Again?
In the first match of this season against Arsenal, Vardy, Schlupp, Mahrez, Kante etc. played well but the Chilean international demolished the team one handedly. Sanchez played an extraordinary game against Foxes. Apart from him, Walcott, Ozil, Ramsey were also more than awesome against Leicester City.
Wenger is showing different gameplay against different teams. But, the bad news is their current form is not as good as it should be or as it used to be. This is because of serious injury of various midfielders and strikers. Although, they have won over Bournemouth with 2-0 scoreline but they have drawn a match against Southampton, which was a easy win for them. Apart from that, they lost of Chelsea with a 0-1 scoreline and failed to become the actual ‘pride of London’.
Nevertheless, Arsene Wenger have the same weapons in his arsenal for this Sunday’s clash at home ground. Now, we have to wait for a few more hours to check whether Vardy and Mahrez can end the winning drought or not.
