They show attractive football, smells like another good season. The hosts have scored seven goals in beating West Brom and Burnley, with Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy playing starring roles. They have also scored in each of their last six matches against the Gunners. The attackers are playing in excellent form, all praise for them.
