This weekend will see Premier League titleholder’s Leicester City face off against Arsenal in their first home game of the season at the King Power.
There couldn’t be a better week for the foxes to play against London giants Arsenal after both Riyad Mahrez signed a new deal with Leicester City until 2020 alongside Jamie Vardy who also signed a new deal, both turning down the opportunity to play for the gunners.
Both sides got off to an abysmal start last week in their opening games of the season with Leicester City losing to newly promoted Hull City 2 – 1 and Arsenal losing to Liverpool 4 – 3, both teams with a very shaky defence.
With Albrighton and Okazaki both coming into the starting 11, we saw record signing Ahmed Musa dropped to the bench along with young winger Demarai Gray.
Arsenal saw their backline leader Koscielny come back into the starting lineup replacing Callum Chambers, who had a shaky game against Liverpool who played alongside youngster Rob Holding who was recently signed from Bolton.
Last season Arsenal were the only team to beat Leicester City both home and away, after an eventful 5 – 2 win over the foxes that saw over 40 shots in the game from both sides.
This game is also referee Mark Clattenberg’s first appearance after an extended break this summer due to refereeing both the Champions League final and the Euro 2016 final. He’s probably also been waiting for his tattoo to heal.
