They have also won their last four Premier League games at the King Power Stadium to build some serious momentum.

Rodgers’ side have scored 11 times in their last two games, including a record-breaking 9-0 win at Southampton.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are six points adrift of third-placed Leicester following a difficult run of results under Unai Emery.

Arsenal played out a 2-2 stalemate with Crystal Palace despite leading 2-0 at half-time before a 1-1 draw with Wolves at The Emirates last weekend.

Owen, a former Newcastle and Real Madrid star, told BetVictor, “Leicester’s win at Crystal Palace on Sunday lacked the fireworks of their record-breaking success at St Mary’s, but it was another professional performance from Brendan Rodgers’ side who continue to go from strength to strength.

“James Maddison created eight chances for his teammates at Selhurst Park while Jamie Vardy became the first player to reach double-figures in the league so far this term.

“The pair have been outstanding so far this term although it seems churlish to single them out given how well the Foxes have played as a unit so far this season.

“Arsenal are likely to have their own opportunities at the King Power, but I think the hosts will keep all three points from what promises to be a cracker.”
