Arsenal Vs Leicester city Match Preview
Arsenal beginning the new Premier League season away from home in a London derby spelled trouble last year, but Mikel Arteta’s reinforced side ensured that lightning would not strike twice in a professional performance against Crystal Palace last Friday.
It would not be an Arsenal win in 2022 without Aaron Ramsdale having to bail his side out on more than one occasion, but a Gabriel Martinelli header from a well-worked corner routine and Marc Guehi’s own goal ultimately got the job done for the Gunners.
From Zinchenko’s assist, Gabriel Jesus’s energetic display and William Saliba’s man-of-the-match performance, the trio of debutants laid down early markers for the months ahead, as Arsenal now aim to kickstart their Emirates endeavours on the front foot.
Arsenal will aim to begin the 2022-23 Premier League season with back-to-back wins as Leicester City visit the Emirates Stadium for Saturday afternoon’s match.
The Gunners kicked off the new campaign with a 2-0 victory away to Crystal Palace, while the Foxes threw away a two-goal lead against Brentford to draw 2-2.
Arsenal produced two of their most impressive performances of last season against Leicester, and they’ll have another chance to send another statement out to the rest of the Premier League with a vulnerable Foxes arriving in north London this weekend.
Brendan Rodgers still has plenty of talent at his disposal, but Leicester’s transfer business this summer has been questionable. They’re certainly not in a great position to once again compete for the European spots, and their mental frailties were on full display last weekend as they surrendered a two-goal lead at home to Brentford.

The Gunners appear to be injury-free heading into the weekend.
Emile Smith Rowe, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Fabio Vieira were pictured in training in the week and each player could make Mikel Arteta’s bench on Saturday.
Wesley Fofana started against Brentford amid heavy transfer speculation and the young French defender is expected to retain his spot in Rodgers’ XI.
