Tonight the Emirates Stadium hosts the opening Premier League fixture of the 17/18 season and Arsenal will be hoping to back up a promising Community Shield victory last weekend with victory tonight against Leicester City.
Surprisingly, despite the Foxes winning the Premier League title a couple of seasons back and having improved as a threat in the league, they are without victory in a league season against Arsenal since 1994.
In Leicester’s title winning season they lost both meetings with Arsenal, 2-5 and 2-1. With players missing due to injury tonight, Leicester will know the task they face in an improved Arsenal side.
Tonight Gunners fans can expect to say star striker Alexandre Lacazette make his Premier League debut, as well as other new signing Sead Kolasinac. Also, if last season still counts for anything then Arsenal head into the game tonight on a six game unbeaten run in the Premier League, winning all six of their last league fixtures.
Arsenal are firm favourites to open up their campaign with victory and take first spot in the table (at least until tomorrow) and right now with Coral you can get a fantastic, but limited time offer of 25/1 on the Gunners to win – hurry and claim it before kick off tonight.
