Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium today off the back of their opening day victory against Crystal Palace last week.
The Gunners impressed many with the maturity of their performance at Selhurst Park last Friday.
Mikel Arteta’s side’s bid to finish in the top four last season of course began to crumble when they faced Palace as they lost 3-0 to Patrick Vieira’s team in April.
This campaign, though, off the back of signing the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Alex Zinchenko, and Fabio Vieira, Arsenal have fresh hope of securing Champions League qualification.
The picture isn’t quite so bright at Leicester City.
The Foxes have been notably inactive in the transfer window and the way they threw away a two-goal lead against Brentford last weekend was emblematic of the position the club find themselves in at the moment.
So, Brendan Rodgers’ side could face quite the challenge in North London later today.
Here’s everything you need to know about Arsenal Vs. Leicester City.
The match unfortunately won’t be broadcasted to UK viewers on live TV.
However, fans will be able to find highlights of the game on the Sky Sports YouTube Channel, or on BBC's Match of the Day later this evening.
Arsenal’s contest with Leicester City kicks off at 3pm (BST) at the Emirates Stadium in North London.
The Gunners come into this match with a fairly clean injury record.
After missing the game at Crystal Palace last week, Fabio Vieira, Emile Smith Rowe, and Takehiro Tomiyasu all returned to training this week.
But the Gunners though will be without Reiss Nelson who has recently suffered an unfortunate injury setback to his quad in training.
As for Leicester, they will be travelling to London today without a few key squad members.
Right-back Ricardo Pereira has been ruled out for six months after rupturing his Achilles, whilst the likes of Harvey Barnes and Ryan Bertrand continue to recover from knee injuries.
Whether Youri Tielemans features will be of interest to many a fan of Leicester City and Arsenal. The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to the Gunners all summer.
