I`ve used this phrase many times in the past but today it rings truer than ever before … when we looked at the fixtures at the start of the season not for one minute did we think this game would be this important. But it is, it`s massive.

The Foxes have been the surprise package of the season and while Arsenal have performed marginally better than last campaign the last month has left us 5 points off the pace, however this game represents a huge opportunity to reel in Claudio Raneri`s side to just a 2 point margin.

Of course the flip side of the coin is that they have the chance to open up a massive 8 point gap. Now as Liverpool proved a couple of years ago, that`s not always enough. This isn`t a defining game in regards to the destination of the PL trophy but a win or a loss would make it much easier or difficult for Arsene to finally regain the Premier League title.

Leicester have gone out of their way this way to let everyone know that they`re not feeling the pressure, but I don`t believe that for one second. Of course no one expected them to be in this position, indeed no one would hold it against them if they didn`t win the PL, however when you`re playing this well and you`re this close to winning the league the pressure builds week after week.

Yes, they weren`t expected to be in this position, but now they are they`ll be desperate not to let it go.

This game is huge folks, for both teams, it promises to be a cracker.
