Arsenal vs Leicester by Mudhara_9er

Arsenal
VS
Leicester
Arsenal kick off the season against Leicester city. The hosts will be eager to start the season strong, especially at home as the first few matches away are tough (Stoke, Liverpool and Chelsea). The 2nd aspect is that the squad finished 5th last season, so this will be the first time in Wenger's Arsenal career that they will not compete in the champions, and looking at the opposition at the top of the table, they know breaking into the top 4 will be even tougher this season.

 

Arsenals squad is basically the same, with the addition of an exciting Lacazette as well as an interesting Kolasinac. They will have to play without main man Sanchez but proved last week against Chelsea that they are still capable of getting a result and playing well without him.

 

This isn´t an easy match at all for Arsenal, and they had to dig deep to clinch wins against Leicester in the past - of Arsenals four wins in six h2h matches against Leicester, only one ended with Arsenal winning by more then a goal.

 

Leicester have the same squad and come into the season off their first full preseason under Shakespeare, they have also secure Iheanacho from City and will hope to start the season better then last term.

 

I expect a tough battle between Morgan and Lacazette, but believe the frenchman pace and skill will be too much for the aging captain to handle. Leicester are best as a counter attacking side, while Arsenal prefer to attack, meaning that this match will not be much different to the previous clashes between the two sides - Leicester laying deep while Arsenal try to find a hole.

 

Arsenal to win because of home advantage, quality, previous legs and importance to start the season running.

 

Good Luck
