Arsenal has had quite an amusing run so far as their last 5 outings include convincing 5 wins altogether. Whereas Leicester city also didn’t disappoint their fans with 2 wins and a draw, also a rather humiliating 6-1 defeat by Tottenham; although judging by the considerably stronger side and home support, Arsenal looks to be on the probable team to bet on.
