Leicester City: Live stream, start time, how to watch Premier League 2020 (Tue., July 7)

Good evening and welcome to the Emirates Stadium where Leicester City take on Arsenal, behind closed doors, in what could prove to be a huge game in their season. Elsewhere this evening, Palace will play host to Chelsea (18:00) in a game that could see the Foxes dropped to fourth with a win. And on Thursday night Manchester United will take on a struggling Aston Villa, hoping that dropped points by Leicester this evening will lift them level on points. Meanwhile, tonight's opponents Arsenal are down in seventh and will be keen to guarantee themselves a spot in the Europa League for next season. Mikel Arteta's side have Burnley, Sheffield United and Tottenham breathing down their neck with only five games left to play in the Premier League.

So join us as we bring you live updates from the Emirates Stadium on a huge night in the Premier League. Arsenal faces Leicester City in a Premier League match at Emirates Stadium in London, England, on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 (7/7/20). Fans without cable can watch the match for free via a trial of fuboTV, Hulu or Sling. Wolverhampton's pursuit of a first-ever qualification for the Champions League received a setback after a 2-0 loss to Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday. Goals from Bukayo Saka, a highly rated 18-year-old midfielder, in the 43rd minute and substitute Alexandre Lacazette in the 86th ensured Wolves dropped points for the first time since the restart of the league, with Nuno Espirito Santo's team having previously recorded three straight wins.

It meant Wolves lost ground on Champions League qualification rivals Leicester and Manchester United, who both won earlier Saturday. With a fifth-place finish earning a spot in Europe's top competition, all is not lost for sixth-place Wolves though they cannot afford many more slip-ups in their remaining five league games. After back-to-back defeats following the resumption, Arsenal has now won three straight games to rise to seventh — three points behind Wolves. A finish in sixth will earn the team a berth in the Europa League next season, as may seventh. Saka, who signed a new long-term deal at Arsenal this week, scored his first Premier League goal when he hooked in a finish from 10 meters after a left-wing cross from Kieran Tierney deflected into the youngster's path.

Arsenal takes on Leicester City Tuesday as the English Premier League shifts its attention away from its own title (already locked up by Liverpool) and toward top-flight teams fighting for a spot in the UEFA Champions League. City sits just one point ahead of fourth-place Chelsea and three points ahead of Manchester United. Should Leicester City be passed by both clubs, they would lose their spot in the Champions League.

Leicester City | 2 p.m. EST With Leicester imploding, Chelsea remaining inconsistent and both Manchester United and Wolverhampton extending their long unbeaten runs, the fight for Champions League qualification has intensified since the restart of the Premier League on June 17.

The number of realistic contenders for the final two or three qualification spots has shrunk from seven to these four teams, and there are just three points separating Leicester in third place and Wolves in sixth with six games left. And by then, it will be clear if fifth place will be enough to secure a place in the Champions League because second-place Manchester City will have learned if it has succeeded with a bid to overturn a two-year European ban at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. At the turn of the year, Leicester was in second place and even had aspirations of winning the league, never mind qualifying for the Champions League. Leicester hosts Crystal Palace on Saturday and has matches against Arsenal, Sheffield United and Tottenham before that potential decider against Man United at the King Power Stadium. Results in the past week have summed up Chelsea's inconsistency this season, with a win over Manchester City followed by a loss at relegation-threatened West Ham. Even in its first game after the restart, Chelsea played poorly in the first half against Aston Villa and fell behind, only to rebound with a strong second-half display in a 2-1 win.

Finishing the season with matches against Liverpool and Wolves puts extra pressure on Chelsea to get results from its next four fixtures, starting with a home match against Watford on Saturday. MANCHESTER UNITED (5th place, 52 points) Given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's next five games — starting with next-to-last Bournemouth at home on Saturday — are against opponents placed 12th or lower, United might be the favorite to finish in third place. "The boys are in high spirits," Espirito Santo said ahead of a home match against Arsenal on Saturday, his 150th game in charge of the team, "so let's keep on working."
