Leicester vs Arsenal: Both sides needs three points to move away from mid-table mediocrity, when the Foxes and Gunners kick off the Premier League weekend at the King Power Stadium on Saturday (Watch live at 7:30 am ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Leicester and Arsenal enter the weekend level on 14 points, currently occupying 9th and 10th places, respectively. Recent results have also been very encouraging for both sides, with Leicester unbeaten in their last four Premier League outings (2W-2D-0L) and Arsenal six without defeat (4W-2D-0L).
Key injuries will leave both sides short of their very best, with first-choice defensive midfielders Wilfred Ndidi and Granit Xhaka set to miss Saturday’s clash. It’s a bigger miss for Leicester, who don’t have a Premier League-tested solution in the form of Thomas Partey, though summer signing Boubakary Soumare is settling in quickly as a very capable understudy.

Leicester find themselves in the midst of some serious defensive struggles, as they’re not only eight Premier League games without a clean sheet, but more crucially they have conceded multiple goals in five of the eight games. This comes just as the Arsenal attack appears to have found its way after some horrid early-season struggles (three straight defeats by a combined margin of 9-0). Leicester 1-3 Arsenal.
