The former Highbury and Filbert Street favourite looks ahead to this weekend’s crucial Premier League clash and reminisces about beating Liverpool at Anfield to clinch the title
Leicester City host Arsenal on Saturday night at the King Power Stadium as one of the form teams in the Premier League go for another three points at the expense of an Arsenal side who have missed out on Champions League qualification in each of the last three seasons since Leicester’s historic Premier League title. The stage is set, then, for a truly memorable game.
“It’s an intriguing one,” says Smith, who played over 200 games for both clubs, “For the first time in a very long time, you’d look at the two sides and say that Leicester are the better team, which is an indication of the problems facing Arsenal at the moment.”
While Smith is positive about the attacking prowess of both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he identifies that the North London side’s problems are further down the pitch.
