Tip Arsenal Southampton
on 23 November 2019
Leicester City are having the time of their life and at third-place they are steadily closing in on leaders Liverpool, who are eight points ahead, and second-placed Manchester City, who lead by just two points. Visitors Arsenal are fifth after 11 rounds of matches of which they have won four and lost two to sit six points behind Leicester. Brendan Rodgers' men have won all of their last eight matches in all competitions, including a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace last weekend. Caglar Soyunku and Jamie Vardy were at hand to score the winning goals at Selhurst Park. The Foxes have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight matches across all competitions. In addition, they have been in great form at home, where they have not lost any of their last eight matches with the last four, all in the premiership, ending in their favor and with over 2.5 goals each. The Gunners have not won any of their last four games in all competitions and coach Unai Emery will be hard pressed to find a victory that will bring him closer to a top four position. Arsenal travel on the back of two league draws, a 2-2 tie at home to Crystal Palace and a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton at the same venue. The Gunners are in equally shaky form on the road and have not won any of their last four away games. But Emery will be given confidence by the knowledge that his team has only lost once against Leicester in the last three seasons.
