Arsenal vs. Leicester City: Premier League – Match Preview

Two sides on nine points from their first five games meet on Sunday as Arsenal entertain Leicester City.

Arsenal were beaten at Manchester City on the weekend, going down 1-0 thanks to a Raheem Sterling winner.

They recovered from a goal down in the Europa League on Thursday to beat Rapid Vienna with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang scoring just a second of the season.

Leicester City suffered back to back league defeats as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Aston Villa.

They bounced back in the Europa League though, easing to a 3-0 win over Zorya, with James Maddison opening the scoring.

Jamie Vardy should recover here having missed the Villa and Zorya fixtures.
