Arsenal’s recent Community Shield win over Chelsea, is a proof that the club is all set to rise again after falling out of the top four in the Premier League last season.
New signing Sead Kolasinad made a huge impression when he came on after Pedro was sent-off. Kolasinac tucked home at the late minutes of the game that served as equalizer to Chelsea’s one point. Towards the end, the Gunners took victory through penalty shootouts.
However, after the win match, Arsene Wenger revealed that Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil will be both forced out of the coming game against Leicester City on August 12.
Leicester are unhappy with their preseason games. Nevertheless, the Foxes finished their preparation for the new season with a 2-1 voctory over German side Gladbach.
As they hit the road to Emirates Stadium, Craig Shakespeare’s squad will be fighting without the presence of Danny Drinkwater, Robert Huth, and Kelechi Iheanacho as they all suffer from respective injury.
Given this, Shinji Okazaki and newly signed Harry Maguire might potentially be given a go signal to join the in-form.
Arsenal will further build confidence as they break down Leicester City’s defenses. Towards the full time, this match is likely to end with victory in the hands of Arsene Wenger and his men.
Arsenal 1.48 (this betting odds might change)
