Leicester have won just one of their last 24 Premier League meetings with Arsenal (D7 L16), though it was in this exact fixture last season (3-1).

Arsenal haven’t lost consecutive away league games against Leicester since November 1983.

After a run of four consecutive Premier League victories, Leicester are winless in their last two under Brendan Rodgers (D1 L1).

Leicester have lost eight Premier League home games this season. They’ve only lost more in a single campaign in the competition in 1994-95 (10) and 2001-02 (9).

Arsenal have lost their last two Premier League games on a Sunday, last losing three such games in a row back in March 2013.

Arsenal have never lost a Premier League game that has kicked off at 12 noon, winning 15 and drawing four. Their last such match was a 5-1 win at Fulham earlier this season.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers hasn’t lost consecutive home league games at any of his clubs since September 2012, losing vs Arsenal and Manchester United at Anfield as Liverpool boss.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has won just two of his nine Premier League meetings with Arsenal (D3 L4), beating them with Swansea in January 2012 and Liverpool in March 2014. Just two managers have won as many as three Premier League games against the Gunners with each victory coming while in charge of a different club (Chris Hughton and Roy Hodgson).

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored three goals in his two league games against Leicester, averaging a goal every 40 minutes against the Foxes.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored six goals in his last seven Premier League games against Arsenal – only against Liverpool (7) has he scored more in the competition than he has against the Gunners (6).

Encouraging to hear Brendan saying he wants to make us more intense and harder working. We've really gone downhill in that regard since our title season. You can have all the ability in the world but a key aspect of even the very best is that they work harder than anyone else.

That 12 noon stat will be a good one to break, although I’m sure I’ve seen Arsenal lose a few from a 12.30 start. That extra half an hour is obviously key to beating them.
