Arsenal (ARS) host Leicester City (LEI) in gameweek 2 of the Premier League 2022-23 season at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, June 13. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.
ARS vs LEI Dream11 prediction
Arsenal made the best possible start to the new Premier League season, beating Crystal Palace 2-0 away from home. On the other hand, Leicester were held to a 2-2 draw by Brentford in a match that exposed their defensive frailties.
Arsenal have assembled an excellent attacking unit for the new campaign and the new players have taken no time to settle. Furthermore, given the home advantage, Arsenal are expected to have the edge against the Foxes, who have lost each of their last three Premier League meetings against the Gunners.
ARS vs LEI Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2022-23
Top tip: Best forward
Between Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus, one can punt on the latter. The former Manchester City forward, who costs 9 credits, did blank against Crystal Palace but there were signs aplenty to see the kind of damage he can do as a number nine. We expect him to get on the scoresheet come Saturday.
Top tip: Best midfielder
If Leicester are to cause an upset, a certain James Maddison will have to be at his very best. There are options such as Bukayo Saka and Youri Tielemans, but judging by the performance that Maddison put on against Brentford and his pre-season form, he remains our pick for this position.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
With an assist on his competitive debut, Arsenal left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko proved to be quite a coup for fantasy managers on gameweek 1. Costing 9 credits, the former Man City defender ended up tallying 80 fantasy points against Palace and is expected to perform similarly against Leicester.
For a goalkeeper, Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale remains the safest option to go with as he is more likely to keep a clean sheet among the two custodians. At just 8.5 credits, he remains our top recommendation for this position.
ARS vs LEI probable playing XI
ARS playing XI (probable): Aaron Ramsdale (captain): Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel Magalhaes, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey; Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard (captain), Gabriel Martinelli; Gabriel Jesus
LEI playing XI (probable): Danny Ward (goalkeeper); Wesley Fofana, Daniel Amartey, Jonny Evans; Timothy Castagne, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, James Justin; James Maddison, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall; Jamie Vardy (captain)
