Arsenal are in fantastic run of nine wins in a row and all players are highly motivated to win another one game. The Gunners have two big signings for the new season, Lacazette and Kolasinac, who will be very important players this season. But for sure their the biggest signing this season is staying Alexis Sanchez in London. Maybe they will lost money with decision not to sell Sanchez, but he is a key player for the Gunners. Arsenal have won with at least a 2 goal margin in their last 5 matches in the Premier League so all expect offensive playing from them. Arsenal have only won their opening Premier League fixture once in the last seven years, but now things are different.
On the other side atmosphere in Leicester City is not on high level. One of their key players, Riyad Mahrez, wants to leave but he will be in starting eleven. Islam Slimani is not fit enough to start this game, so looks like they don't have big chances against top motivated Arsenal. Leicester are not good away from the home and have failed to win 19 of their last 21 away matches. If they want to win points in the opening game, then have to play aggressive in midfield and to score at least one goal.
When it comes to their mutual encounters, Arsenal have much better records. The Gunners have won their last 7 home matches against Leicester in all competitions. Arsenal have won four of the last five previous meetings and all expect from them to beat Leicester on the start.
