Arsenal vs Leicester betting tips: Aubameyang opener, both teams to score at Emirates – Premier League predictions – The Sun
ARSENAL take on Leicester as a packed weekend of Premier League games draws to a close.
And we've also got all the big tips for Tottenham's match at Burnley tomorrow night.
Arsenal vs Leicester, Sunday 7.15pm (Sky Sports Box Office)
It's back to fortress Emirates as Arsenal look to return to winning ways after defeat to Man City.
Mikel Arteta's men kick-off this Sunday night clash level on points with the visitors and without a Premier League defeat at home in 2020.
They're proving solid, if unspectacular, this campaign and have got the job done in North London against West Ham and Sheffield United.
Leicester meanwhile continue to be wildly unpredictable.
Their poor form after the lockdown period saw them throw away a Champions League berth for this season – but they'd looked to have turned a corner after three wins from three to start the new term.
That included the 5-2 thrashing of Man City at the Etihad, but ever since then the wheels have fallen off slightly.
They're trying to avoid a third-straight defeat here after going down meekly to the Hammers and then Aston Villa last week.
The Foxes scored 12 in their opening three games, but have drawn a blank since.
Luckily for them, we reckon that run ends at the Emirates.
Despite Arsenal's good form here, they are leaky at the back and haven't kept a home clean sheet since hosting Norwich back in July.
Speaking of which, that month was when Leicester visited last and then picked up a point in a 1-1 draw.
We see a very similar game for Sunday, with Brendan Rodgers' men determined to put an end to this losing run.
History isn't on their side though and Leicester have lost on 12 of their last 15 visits to North London.
They've scored on six of the last seven H2H's here though and we reckon they do again, with both teams to score our banker of the weekend at 8/13.
The Foxes needed the international break to regroup and we reckon they give the Gunners a real game here – take the 17/20 on them getting either a draw or a victory on the double chance market.
Jamie Vardy has five Premier League goals already this season and will be a popular choice for those of you punting on the goalscorer market. The latest updates suggest he should return from injury for this game.
But Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got the Gunners goal in this matchup back in July and is currently on a four-game dry spell in the league.
He went through a similar run twice last season – and bagged in the Europa League the other night.
We reckon he's the man to be on for the opener at 14/5, or 19/20 anytime if you're playing things safe.

Burnley vs Tottenham, Monday 8pm (Sky Sports)
Oh to be a fly on the wall of the Spurs dressing room last week.
Tottenham let a three-goal lead slip in the final eight minutes against West Ham, capitulating in stunning fashion to Jose Mourinho's horror.
That didn't however stop them being made third-favourites for the Premier League title this season, regardless of the freak comeback.
In Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, they currently have the most dangerous double-act in the division.
And Gareth Bale could be added to the fray for this Monday Night clash under the lights. Tasty.
Burnley started last season slowly and eventually picked up some form, but Sean Dyche will still be concerned by their start this time around.
One point from a possible 12 and no victories from games against West Brom, Southampton, Newcastle and Leicester is not ideal.
Concerning for the Clarets too is their paltry three goals so far, two of which came on opening day.
They need to find their shooting boots – and fast.
Tottenham are the league's top scorers and if Burnley are to get anything out of this, we reckon they'll need to score at least twice.
When meeting on this ground back in March, the teams played out a tepid 1-1 draw with Spurs playing no recognised striker.
It's all change this time round and with their form going forward, they're the ones to back on the goals market.
For a start, Tottenham are a great price of 8/13 to win the game and we think they will have learnt from the embarrassing Hammers debacle.
Spurs to win and over 2.5 goals is a terrific 6/4 and our biggest fancy for this one.
And to play it safer with another excellent price, take Tottenham to score in BOTH halves at a massive 31/20.
Plenty is expected of Bale since his return from Real Madrid and all eyes were on the Welsh superstar as he played against LASK on Thursday night.
He looked sharp and provided the assist for the second goal, showing that old magic is still there.
Kane is evens to net at Burnley and that's a great price, but we prefer a fairytale punt on Bale marking his return to the Premier League with a goal at a huge 9/5.
SunSport's best bets
- Tottenham to win and over 2.5 goals: 6/4 (BET HERE)
- Spurs to score in both halves: 31/20 (BET HERE)
- Gareth Bale to net first goal since return: 9/5 (BET HERE)
