The wait is finally over-Preview: Arsenal vs. Leicester City

The wait is finally over. The Premier League is all set and ready to begin.

All eyes will be set towards the game between Arsenal and Leicester City game on Friday night as the first fixture of the 2017/18 season will be played under the Emirates floodlights.

The wait is finally over-Preview: Arsenal vs. Leicester City

The Gunners will look to continue their winning ways after a thrilling encounter at Wembley which saw them triumph on penalties against London rivals Chelsea, as new signings Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac will look to impress their new fanbase.

Leicester, on the other hand, are hoping to get this campaign off to a winning start in a bid to hopefully enjoy something more like the 2015/16 season than the one which ended a few months ago.

The Foxes have kept hold of key players this year – so far, anyway – and also added solid signings to the fray. Newbie Kelechi Iheanacho is set to make his debut after signing this summer and Harry Maguire is also likely to come under the spotlight.

Arsenal are the bookies favourite but a strong Leicester side awaits.

As the new season begins, sit back, relax and enjoy the joys of the Premier League and everything the beautiful game has to offer as we usher in the 17/18 season.

Arsenal team news

Arsenal will be without defender Laurent Koscielny due to a ban. Per Mertesacker suffered a bad head wound recently against Chelsea so he could be a doubt as well as Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey, due to fitness doubts. Key player Alexis Sanchez is also ruled out.
