Arsenal vs Leicester 12/8/2017
This Friday night encounter will launch the brand new EPL season. Both teams will be eager to make amends. Arsenal are desperate to regain a top-four spot, while Leicester are aiming to improve on a shocking 12th-placed finish. Home debuts will be handed out to summer signings Alexandre Lacazette and Saed Kolasanic. We have heard many of the former, but not the latter. Kolasanic impressed many with a courageous display against Chelsea in the Community Shield last week, even scoring a late equaliser. The Gunners went on to win on penalties. Star player Alexis Sanchez sits out with a muscle strain for at least two weeks. Captain Laurent Koscielny will need to serve a suspension from last season. Leicester are at full strength. There have been some late goals in this fixture. Last season, the Gunners won on an own goal five minutes from time. And a season earlier, they scrambled an injury-time winner.
