Leicester City are preparing to host Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday. Currently, the Foxes are 3rd in the league table with 49 points, meanwhile, the Gunners are 11th with 34 points.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson stated his prediction.

“Manchester City toyed with Arsenal last weekend and took it easy towards the end of their 1-0 win, which made the game look closer than it was.

“Leicester, meanwhile, were impressive against Aston Villa. Their front three of James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy all looked really sharp, and I don’t think the Gunners will be able to handle them.

“Arsenal are stuck in mid-table and this game might show what they are missing from what it takes to get in the top four.

“Leicester play on the front foot and they are solid, have plenty of attacking spark and take their chances – the days where you might say they rely on Vardy to score his trademark breakaway goals are long gone.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-1
