Leicester City - Arsenal Betting Preview: Ramsey could be the key as Gunners go for glory

Nigel Pearson's men are still looking for their first Premier League victory of the season but our tipster is backing Arsenal's in-form Welsh midfielder to find the net again
Leicester City have endured a tough start to life in the English Premier League and the Foxes are set to face another stiff test of their top flight credentials when they play host to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

Nigel Pearson’s men opened the season with a battling 2-2 draw against Everton before slipping to defeat against Chelsea and the Premier League new-boys will be eager to bounce back when they take on the Gunners this weekend.

Leicester are chalked up at 100/30 (4.33) with Paddy Power to claim all three points this weekend, while Arsene Wenger’s men – who reached the group stages of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Besiktas in midweek – are available at 4/5 (1.80) with Paddy Power to get the better of the Foxes this weekend. The same firm go 13/5 (3.60) that the match ends in stalemate.

Arsenal have yet to find their best form thus far this term, securing a narrow 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season before battling back from 2-0 down last weekend to earn a 2-2 draw against Everton.

Nigel Pearson’s side have won a few admirers already this term following a couple of battling displays and fans of the Foxes may be tempted by Paddy Power’s even money (2.0) quote for Leicester City in the draw no bet market this weekend.

That price would be particularly appealing should Arsenal exhibit any signs of a European hangover following their Champions League clash with Besiktas in North London on Wednesday night.

Former Barcelona striker Alexis Sanchez may well be asked to lead the line for the Gunners in the absence of the injured Olivier Giroud and the 5/1 (6.0) quote from Paddy Power for the Chilean striker to break the deadlock carries plenty of appeal here, while the same firm go 11/8 (2.38) that Sanchez strikes at any time.

Better value, though, may be found in backing Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey to be the man to hurt the Foxes this weekend. The 23-year-old has found the net in both of Arsenal’s previous Premier League encounters this term and the 17/10 (2.70) quote on offer from Paddy Power for Ramsey to find the net at any time should be snapped up accordingly this weekend.
