Arsenal vs Leicester Final Football Score 25 Feb 2023

Leicester’s James Maddison, who has been managing a knee injury, will be assessed ahead of the game. Defenders Ryan Bertrand and Jonny Evans remain out with respective knee and thigh injuries. Arsenal’s top scorer Bukayo Saka is fit and midfielder Thomas Partey, who has missed the last two matches with a thigh problem, could feature. Gabriel Jesus is making good progress after his World Cup knee injury but it is still too soon for a return. Leicester are in a relegation scrap, which is hard to understand when you consider the attacking talent they have got. The Foxes’ issue is that they are so brittle at the back, which is why I think there will be goals in this game and also why I am going to back Arsenal to win it. I want to see a title race and I loved the way the Gunners found a way of getting the three points against Villa last week after trailing twice. They really showed their mettle and it must have been a huge boost to their confidence. Now they have to back it up with another win here but I do feel their trip to King Power Stadium will be more straightforward. They will have plenty of chances, because their forwards will be able to get at the Foxes’ backline.

Leicester could lose five consecutive league games against Arsenal for the first time in 91 years. Arsenal are vying to win three consecutive away league fixtures against the Foxes for the first time since 1925. The Gunners have won each of their last three away matches against Leicester in all competitions. Leicester have earned just 12 points from a possible 33 at home this season – only bottom side Southampton have a worse record in the Premier League. The Foxes have scored 23 first-half goals this season but have conceded a league-high 23 in the second half. Brendan Rodgers’ side are the only team not to have kept a Premier League clean sheet since the World Cup. Leicester have lost five Premier League games from winning positions this season, more than any other side. Jamie Vardy has scored a career-high 11 Premier League goals against Arsenal. However, he has scored just once in 23 league appearances this season.


Arsenal have won five of their past six away games in the Premier League. The Gunners have the best away record in the top flight – their tally of 28 points is seven more than any other team. Arsenal have already matched last season’s final tally of nine away wins in the Premier League. They have conceded the opening goal in four of their last five league fixtures. Victory over Aston Villa last weekend was the fourth league game this season they have won from behind – no side has fared better. Bukayo Saka has been involved in 49 Premier League goals for Arsenal, with 26 goals and 23 assists. The 21-year-old could become the youngest player to reach 50 goal involvements since Cesc Fabregas in 2008. We’ve strung together three successive wins at the King Power Stadium over recent seasons; a ground where the Foxes haven’t enjoyed the best of times this term, winning just three of their 11 home league matches, including just one since October. However, that did come via a 4-1 success over Tottenham Hotspur in their last fixture on their own patch, aided by key players returning to form and fitness plus some January recruitment. That combination has seen Brendan Rodgers’ side win three of their last five in all competitions as they look to recover from a wretched start.

Just four points and positions separate Leicester from the relegation zone, where they have spent a large portion of the season after winning just once in their first 10 matches. However they began to hit their stride in the autumn, picking up 16 of their 24 points to date in October and November before the World Cup break. That halted their momentum though, as just a solitary draw arrived from their first five games after the restart to once again leave them in danger. That prompted Rodgers to dip into the January transfer market, with defenders Victor Kristiansen and Harry Soutar recruited alongside Tete in attack. They re-energised the side to record successive high-scoring victories over Aston Villa and Tottenham this month, before falling to a 3-0 defeat to an on-form Manchester United last weekend. “They’ve been really consistent the past few weeks in the games they’ve played. It’s true that Brendan has proposed very different games in many different moments throughout the seasons and they have this capacity to adapt, play different formations and play in different approaches. think both teams want to play. That’s the identity and philosophy of both Mikel and myself. We want to create and score goals. I think we’ve shown that but, of course, you have to be mindful of the quality they have.

“Like in all the big games against top teams, you have to defend well, you have to be strong, do all the basics of the game well, track runners, be competitive, and then you have to believe in your football, believe that you can create and score goals. It should be a fantastic game.” Thomas Partey is the one out of our trio of injured players closest to a first-team return as he attempts to recover from the muscle problem that has kept him out the past two games. Meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus and Mohamed Elneny remain out. Leicester’s previously-packed treatment room is starting to empty. Youri Tielemans and Boubakary Soumare played the final 30 minutes last weekend after missing matches with calf and hamstring ailments respectively, while Ricardo Pereira recently returned to the squad after a long Achilles lay-off. Rodgers could also call upon fellow long-term injury victims Jonny Evans (thigh) and Ryan Bertrand (knee) who are nearing a return, but James Justin is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. There is also a doubt about James Maddison’s availability, who has been nursing a knee injury in recent months, despite recently returning to the side.
