Arsenal v Leicester City | Saturday, August 12, 4.45am (AEST), Emirates Stadium, London
Winning silverware at the start of the season is always nice for everyone involved.
Arsenal will go into season with a spring in their step after their Community Shield triumph and let’s be honest, they have harder starts than being at home to Leicester.
A winning start will be the only thing on their mind.
Record signing Alexandre Lacazette looks like he has some flexibility to his game and Arsene Wenger rarely gets it wrong.
It might take a little bit of time before he can lead the line for Arsenal but playing just off he can be just as effective.
He’s a real goal scorer and it’ll be interesting to see how long it takes for him to transfer the French form to the EPL.
He’ll score goals in a team who tend to create chances.
I was very fortunate to see Arsenal in Oz and they look like they have a nice balance that should be asking questions this season.
They’ll start here with a win against Leicester but will certainly be facing tougher games and top four will be the aim but the Gunners may come up short.
Leicester will grind away again and survival is their goal for the season.
Arsenal at $1.46
Leicester City 6.50
Tip: Arsenal at $1.46
Correct score: Arsenal 3-1
