Can Jamie Vardy match Rooney's scoring record against Arsenal?

Arsenal's search for three Premier League points will take them to King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City in Saturday's early kick-off. 

The Gunners thumped Aston Villa 3-1 last time out and will be fired up when they face Brendan Rodgers' unpredictable side. 

The Foxes have been boosted by news that Jamie Vardy will be available for the clash.  

The striker was withdrawn at half-time in the win over Brentford with a knee issue last weekend, but Rodgers has said despite the player missing their shootout win over Brighton in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, he will be ready to play.

Facts

Vardy has scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal than he has versus any other side in the competition (11).

Only Wayne Rooney (12) has netted more against the Gunners in the competition than Vardy.

After a 22-match winless run against Arsenal in the Premier League between 1995 and 2018, Leicester have won four of their last seven against the Gunners in the competition (D1 L2).

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been involved in five goals in his last six Premier League appearances (four goals, one assist). 

The two sides are tied on 14 points from their opening nine games, but Mikel Arteta's team has an inferior goal difference.
