When they go to face Leicester City in their matchup at the King Power on Saturday, Arsenal will have the opportunity to briefly regain a five-point lead atop the Premier League standings. With a 3-0 loss to Manchester United last weekend, the Foxes failed to capitalize on their first-half superiority, while the Gunners defeated Aston Villa 4-2 in one of the season’s games.
Last Saturday at Old Trafford, where even Erik ten Hag acknowledged that his team’s first-half performance was “rubbish,” Leicester came close to scoring but were denied by wayward finishing and heroic goalkeeping from David de Gea.
However, tactical adjustments made at halftime swung the match in Man United’s advantage as the scorching Jadon Sancho came off the bench to add the cherry on top, and then Marcus Rashford made Leicester pay for their wastefulness with a brace.
Leicester sits 14th in the rankings and four points clear of the relegation zone with 23 games remaining after receiving a tough reality check after crushing Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 on February 11 — Lilywhites fans would not mind their North London rivals experiencing the same fate here.
Prior to their trip to Old Trafford, Brendan Rodgers’ team had a three-game winning streak, which was undoubtedly ignited by the return of James Maddison at the right time. However, the Red Devils’ eight-match Premier League unclean sheet streak against Leicester was the turning point for that team.
