Back Arsenal To Edge To A Narrow Opening Day Win Against Leicester

The English top-flight will start on a Friday for the first time its history as the 2017/18 Premier League season gets underway with an intriguing clash between Arsenal and Leicester, who are both bidding to make a fast start following desperately disappointing campaigns last term...

  • Arsenal have won each of their last four home games against Leicester by a single goal margin
  • Leicester have lost their last ten trips to Arsenal
  • Leicester haven't beaten Arsenal in the Premier League since 1994 - Drawn Seven, Lost Fourteen

Below Expectations

Arsenal missed out on the Champions League for the first time in twenty years but Arsene Wenger still remains as manager in spite of that failure and his team are 1/2 to win (bet 365) on Friday, something they have done only once on the opening day in the previous seven seasons (drawn three, lost three).

The onus is on the Gunners to take three points at The Emirates but they will have to do without the 'injured' Alexis Sanchez and suspended Laurent Koscielny, while Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil are injury doubts.

Leicester are without Robert Huth for the trip to London but new signing Harry Maguire should start, while Danny Drinkwater hopes to be fit as the Foxes bid to win this Arsenal v Leicester fixture for the first time since 1994.
Match Odds:

Narrow Home Win

Leicester have gone 21 league games without success against the Gunners (drawn seven, lost fourteen) and they have lose each of their past ten matches at Arsenal.

However, their past four defeats in North London have come by a just a one goal margin and only a Robert Huth own goal separated the two teams last season, with the pair drawing 0-0 at the King Power Stadium before Arsenal edged to a 1-0 win at home.

It could be another tight contest on Friday and Arsenal to win by one goal is our stand-out bet for the match at 11/4 (Sky Bet).

Leicester only won two matches on the road during 2016/17 and seven of their thirteen away defeats came by just the single goal, with Craig Shakespeare's side collecting a meagre one point at the homes of top-nine opposition.

The Foxes will come up short on Friday and they will have to be wary of the threat posed by Arsenal's new signing, Alexandre Lacazette, who is 10/3 to score first (b365) on his debut.
