  • Leicester’s James Maddison has been involved in eight goals in his last five Premier League games (4 goals, 4 assists), while in Premier League history only Jamie Vardy (174), Riyad Mahrez (66) and Muzzy Izzet (59) have been involved in more goals for the Foxes than Maddison (57 – 33 goals, 24 assists).
  • Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli has been involved in five goals in his last five Premier League starts (2 goals, 3 assists), netting their opening goal of the season against Crystal Palace. He’s looking to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time.
  • Only Harry Kane (13) and Wayne Rooney (12) have scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal than Leicester’s Jamie Vardy (11), although the 35-year-old hasn’t scored in his last two games against the Gunners.
  • Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus has scored five goals in seven Premier League games against Leicester – only against Everton (8) and Watford (6) has he netted more in the competition.
  • Since the start of last season, only Southampton (32) and Newcastle (24) have dropped more points from winning positions in the Premier League than Leicester (23), with the Foxes letting a two-goal lead slip in their opening match against Brentford.
  • Arsenal won 2-0 against Crystal Palace in their opening game. The Gunners have started a Premier League campaign with two wins on six occasions, but they’ve not started with two wins without conceding since 1971-72.
  • Leicester have kept one clean sheet in their last 26 away Premier League matches, doing so in a 2-0 win at Burnley last March. They haven’t kept a clean sheet on the road against a current top-flight side since February 2021, a goalless draw at Wolves.
  • Arsenal have lost six of their last 12 Premier League home games in August (W4 D2); before this run, the Gunners had won 15 of their previous 16 home August matches.
  • Leicester have won just one of their last 25 away league matches against Arsenal (D4 L20), a 1-0 win in October 2020. The Foxes have lost more away top-flight matches against the Gunners than against any other side (35).
  • Arsenal have won their last three Premier League matches against Leicester City, scoring seven goals and conceding just one. The Gunners last had four consecutive league victories over the Foxes between February 1999 and December 2000.

Time for a bit of positivity:
Vardy hattrick
We won't concede from a corner
KDH will play a full 90 minutes
Maddison will stop falling over


so, only 4 - 3 to the Arsenal

2-0 Leicester. Glover, Stringfellow.

4-2 Leicester. Goodfellow, Stringfellow, Sinclair, Simpson (o.g.)

One of my first away games. I hitched down from Rugby with my 12-year old sister for the game.

Has Vardy joined the magic circle?
