Arsenal will be looking to claim two back-to-back victories in the Premier League as they take on Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium this Saturday afternoon.
The Gunners started their new season with an impressive 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace last week, with Gabriel Martinelli’s early strike and Marc Guehi’s own goal making it a comfortable victory for the visitors.
Mikel Arteta’s side have enjoyed a very successful transfer window so far, signing the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira to become one of the biggest Premier League spenders.
On the other hand, Leicester City kickstarted their new campaign in a disappointing fashion as they squandered a 2-0 lead against Brentford to draw the match 2-2.
The Foxes have failed to add a single player in this transfer window so far, but they looked fine without any new additions when they struck twice through Timothy Castagne and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall against the Bees last time out.
However, they allowed the visitors to make a comeback by conceding two goals and ultimately had to be content with only a single point.
They continued their impressive run last weekend as they thrashed Crystal Palace 2-0 at the Selhurst Park Stadium.
Arsenal boast an outstanding home league record against Leicester, having lost only one of their previous 25 matches against the Foxes.
The Gunners also emerged victorious against their rivals on Saturday in the two Premier League matches last season.
The King Power Stadium isn’t a cheerful place these days, with Leicester City failing to bring any new recruits this summer so far.
Their defensive frailties were exposed last weekend when they conceded two goals to squander a brilliant opportunity to pick up full points from their opening game against Brentford.
Brendan Rodgers’ side now face a difficult opponent in Arsenal, and the Foxes’ away form last season doesn’t give a lot of hope for their fans. They won only four league matches away from home in the entirety of the 2021-22 season.
