Arsenal will look to make it two wins in two league games when they welcome Leicester to the Emirates this Saturday.

The Gunners began the new season with a 2-0 win over a spirited Crystal Palace side thanks to a first-half goal from Gabriel Martinelli and an own-goal from Marc Guehi who bundled home from a Bukayo Saka cross.

The result was the hosts’ first clean sheet in the league after ten games without one. They will now hope to make it back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since January when they welcome Brendan Rodgers’ side to the Emirates.

Having won their last three home games of the previous season, Mikel Arteta’s side will come into this tie confident that they can record another home win against a side they have beaten in each of their last two head-to-head meetings. 

Possible Arsenal starting line-up

Aaron Ramsdale; Ben White, Gabriel, William Saliba, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Granit Xhaka, Tomas Partey; Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesus.

Injured: None 

Doubtful: Emile Smith-Rowe, Fabio Vieira

Suspended: None 

Leicester City 

After throwing away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Brentford last time out, Leicester City will travel to north London desperate to make amends and get their first win of the season.

In a disappointing game at the King Power Stadium, The Foxes went ahead through Timothy Castagne and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall. But goals from Ivan Toney and Josh Dasilva restored parity for the Bees.

Having not made a signing so far this summer- the only Premier League club yet to make a signing–Brendan Rodgers’ side are coming under pressure to justify their decision not to invest in their brittle squad. 

As such, they will be desperate to show their mettle in this game against the Gunners and prove that despite their lack of transfer activity, they are still a side to beat. 

Possible Leicester starting line-up

Danny Ward; Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, Daniel Amartey; Timothy Castagne, James Justin, Youri Tielemans, Wilfred Ndidi, Kiernan; Dewsbury-Hall, James Maddison; Jamie Vardy.

Injured: Harvey Barnes, Ryan Bertrand, Ricardo Pereira

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None
