After a cracking start to the Barclays Premier League last week, there is another full round of matches this weekend.

The reigning champions of England, Leicester City and last year’s runners-up Arsenal will lock horns this weekend at King Power Stadium.

Both teams are looking forward to kickstart their season after suffering embarrasing defeats during the opening day of the 2016-2017 season.

Arsenal were outsmarted by their rivals Liverpool at their own base last weekend while their opponents Leicedter City were beaten by the newly promoted team, Hull City.

Leicester have got an advantage since they will be playing at King Power Stadium.

The King Power team lost their midfielder wonder Kid N’Golo Kante to Chelsea but they are happy for keeping their two most talented players, Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.

On the other side, Arsenal will still miss the services of their two defenders Per Mertersacker, Aaron Ramsey and Gabriel who are all injuerd. But the Emirates team are expected to enjoy the services of Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny who missed the opening encounter against Liverpool after being rested by Arsene Wenger.

Arsene Wenger said the gunners will be much sharper in the next game and they have sorted out those mistakes they made against Liverpool on Sunday.

“We conceded four silly goals during our first game at home, we had to avoid mistakes which made us to concede four goals on our first game. We are aware that Leicester are quick on the break and a strong unit”, said Wenger.
