On Saturday, Arsenal welcomes Leicester City to the Emirates Stadium for their first home game of the Premier League season on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners impressed in the season opener, but they do not want to stop now. Despite failing to find the net on his official Arsenal debut, Gabriel Jesus will continue to lead the line for the capital club.
Last season, Leicester finished 8th with a 14-10-14 record, while Arsenal placed 5th on a 22-3-13 record. There was a clear difference in performance between these two teams last season. While both of them made changes during the off-season, Arsenal is still considered the favorite team heading into this game.
The Gunners erased any memory of their three consecutive defeats to open last season when a first-half header from Gabriel Martinelli put them ahead early. The strike, combined with a late Marc Guehi own goal, gave Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta the start he was hoping for.
On the other hand, Leicester also held a two-goal advantage on the opening weekend, but the Foxes were pegged back twice by Brentford and were ultimately forced to settle for a disappointing point at the King Power Stadium. If we take a look at the Leicester calendar then we can see that the first few weeks will be an uphill battle for them.
Arsenal have won their last three matches against Leicester City in the Premier League, scoring seven goals and conceding only one in the process, and to make things worse, Leicester City have kept only one clean sheet in their last 26 Premier League games away from home.
Two of the Premier League’s most talented, young center backs will go toe to toe in this one as Arsenal’s William Saliba will line up opposite his former Saint Etienne CB partner Wesley Fofana for the first time. This makes it a very exciting match to watch.
