Arsenal vs Leicester: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news and h2h results today

Arsenal battle Leicester at the Emirates Stadium today as they look to make it back-to-back Premier League wins to kick off the new season.

A fairly straightforward 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace on opening night saw fine performances from the likes of William Saliba, Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus, and Mikel Arteta’s Gunners now face a Foxes side still without a new signing and with question marks over much of their squad.

Leicester started strongly against Brentford on Sunday but were unable to stop the Bees fighting back to draw 2-2 in a dispiriting start to the new season. Quite a few eyes will be on Youri Tielemans, a Gunners target, and even more on Wesley Fofana, who Chelsea are keen to sign.

Arsenal are brimming with confidence while Leicester have started a season with the mood darker than it has been for some time.

The Gunners are primed to take advantage, especially against a team who won just once away from home in the league last season. An early goal and this could be done quickly.
