One of the first matches to take place in the English Premier League on Sunday the 28th of February is between Leicester City and Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.

The hosts begin the weekend in 3rd place on 49 points while the visitors are in 11th place on 34 points.

Leicester City come into the game having been eliminated from the Europa League on Thursday night. Having drawn the first leg 0-0 against Slavia Prague away from home, the Foxes were clear favourites to win at home and progress in the competition. However, Slavia Prague played well and scored two unanswered goals in the second half to win the match 2-0.

It was a shock defeat for Leicester City, especially as they had gone into the match on a 6 game unbeaten run in all competitions.

In terms of the Premier League, Leicester City are undefeated in their last 4 matches, including victories over Liverpool at home plus Fulham and Aston Villa away. There was also a draw away against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Trends show Leicester City have not lost in 15 of their last 17 games in all competitions and they are undefeated in 4 of their last 5 at home in the Premier League.

Both teams have scored in 3 of those 5 home Premier League matches and Leicester City have scored 2 or more goals in 4 of their last 5 league games at the King Power Stadium.

In contrast to their opponents, Arsenal progressed to the Round of 16 in the Europa League on Thursday night. They were forced to play their home fixture against Benfica in Greece and scored a late goal to win the match 3-2 and progress 4-3 on aggregate. It was a huge win for the Gunners, who are going to struggle to qualify for European football in the Premier League this season.

However, it was only the second victory in 7 matches in all competitions for Arsenal. Recent form in the Premier League has been poor and Arsenal have won only one of their last 5 league games.

They have been defeated in each of their last two away league matches but have managed to find the back of the net in 5 of their last 6 Premier League fixtures on the road.

Team news and Leicester City are definitely without James Justin and Dennis Praet. They also have doubts over the fitness of James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, Wesley Fofana, and Wes Morgan.

Arsenal could be without central defender Rob Holding due to concussion but he is set to be the only player unavailable for the Gunners.

Leicester City will be keen to bounce back following their defeat in the Europa League. Arsenal were forced to travel to Greece for their game and that could result is some tired legs for this match.

Leicester City are the form team in the Premier League and could come away with maximum points, with both teams scoring.
