Leicester didn’t make a good start of the season in Premier League after they lost in the first round against Hull City 2-1. It was their second defeat this season after Manchester United defeated them 2-1 in the FA Community Shield. Last season champions will not have an easy job, because Arsenal will be fully motivated to make good result after they lost at home against Liverpool 3-4 in the first round. Good news for Claudio Ranieri‘s team could be the fact that very important defender Robert Huth get back in the squad after suspension. Leicester City maintain 15 home league games unbeaten. Interesting fact is that last defeat at home Leicester suffered against Arsenal when team from London smashed them 2-5.

Arsenal can’t be satisfied after they lost against Liverpool, so they want to repeat their performance from the previous season when they beat today’s opponent 2-5. Reason for very poor performance, especially in defence, in the first round could be absences, because they played without few very important. Good news for Arsene Wenger could be fact that Laurent Koscienly, Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil are all back in team and should be in the first eleven. Visitors have very good records against Leicester. In the last 16 matches between these two teams in all competitions, Arsenal lost only once. With three new players in squad, Arsenal could be dangerous, but home side also know how to score, especially when they play upfront their supporters.

Team News

Home team welcomes Robert Huth after suspension, while Gokhan Inler and Ritchie de Laet are both out. On the other side, visitors will be without Mertesacker, Gnabry, Jenkinson, Gabriel, Iwobi, Ramsey and Welbeck, while Wilshere is doubtful.

Leicester: Schmeichel, Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs: Mahrez, Drinkwater, Amartey, Musa: Okazaki, Vardy.

Leicester vs Arsenal Prediction

Both teams started very bad this season and both will be fully motivated to win this game. Arsenal is favorite, but only on the paper. I expect very interesting match between Leicester vs Arsenal and many goals in both nets.
