Arsenal vs Leicester City: Match Preview.


Premier League season kicking-off on a Friday for the first ever time.


The 2017-18 Premier League season starts on Friday when Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates stadium, 83 days after last season ended.

Arsene Wenger's side and Leicester City will field new faces and maybe a few players looking at the exit doors could feature as well.

The Gunners will be looking to start the new campaign on a high following their Community Shield win over champions Chelsea last Sunday and they haven't lost to the Foxes since 1994.


Alexis Sanchez, who has been heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates, has been told by his boss that he will be staying this summer.


Leicester's Riyad Mahrez will be allowed to leave the King Power if they get the right price for the Algeria international.

However, both sides will be keen to prevent a defeat like they did - on the opening-day of the 2016-17 season - 12 months ago.

kick-off: 7.45pm on Friday, August 11.

Arsenal predicted starting XI: Cech; Holding, Mustafi, Monreal; Bellerin, Xhaka, Elneny, Kolasinac; Sanchez, Iwobi, Lacazette.

Leicester City predicted starting XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Mahrez, James, Iborra, Ndidi, Albrighton; Vardy.
