Jamie Vardy

Factfile – Arsenal vs. Leicester City

Saturday's clash between Arsenal and Leicester City at Emirates Stadium will be the 149th time the clubs have met in a competitive fixture.
More on this story...

While the home record is more competitive, with Leicester winning 25, drawing 25 and losing 25 of those clashes, their visits to north London have historically been less enjoyable. The Foxes have won just seven of their 73 trips to either Highbury or Emirates Stadium over the years.

In 2020, though, a solitary Jamie Vardy strike was enough for City to secure a 1-0 victory in the capital, ending a winless run there since 1973. That success is likely to be a source of motivation for Brendan Rodgers' men ahead of Saturday's 3pm BST kick-off. Here are some of the key facts and figures...
