Arsenal vs. Leicester City live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League

Is Arsenal 2022/23 real? The Gunners will look to further answer that question with their first Premier League home game of the season. The Emirates crowd will rock if the Gunners look to start with a perfect record after two days of play.

As well as being favorites to beat Leicester at home, Arsenal are reportedly on the verge of signing one of Leicester City’s best players in midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Belgian will continue to play for the Foxes against the team reportedly trying to secure his services, making for a compelling subplot.

Leicester will need all the help they can get against an Arsenal side who have carried their pre-season form into the new season, clinching a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace in the season’s opening game. Gabriel Martinelli scored the opening goal and sealed the result with an own goal. Arsenal’s big new signing Gabriel Jesus kept a goalless debut in an official match and will be keen to get on the board in front of his new home fans.

A dose of Bukayo Saka, Jesus and Martinelli isn’t the easiest way for the Foxes to get over their disappointing season-opener draw at home to Brentford last weekend as they conceded a 2-0 lead with two goals in the last half-hour. It was a poor result for a team expecting to fight for Europe again.

Arsenal vs Leicester City live updates, Premier League highlights

23 minutes: What a goal by Gabriel Jesus! He puts the ball into traffic in the Leicester box and lofts a nice chip that nestles into the far corner. Fantastic ending.

20 minutes: Another Granit Xhaka runs into the Leicester box and meets a Bukayo Saka cross at the far post and it looks like his header will go off the post and keeper Danny Ward. Xhaka is looking for it today.

16 minutes: Yellow card for Wesley Fofana. Gabriel Martinelli burned past him on the left wing and Fofana did everything he could to hold him back. The following set piece situation sends a ball into the penalty area for a Gabriel header, which is wide.

12 minutes: Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale has to make another play in his box to chip away a Leicester cross from the right that was meant for James Justin. The Foxes build up attack threats, especially when Arsenal spit the ball out.

10 minutes: Nice Arsenal combo around the Leicester box. The Gunners jab and jab, trying to drag the organized Foxes out of position. It’s a patient, calculated Arsenal team to start with.

4th minute: Leicester have the best chance of the game so far! It’s Wesley Fofana dispossessing Granit Xhaka and runs into the Arsenal box, firing a shot that is stopped by Aaron Ramsdale. Strong start for the foxes.

Arsenal vs Leicester City Lineups

The Gunners squad is getting healthier with the return of Takehiro Tomiyasu and Emile Smith Rowe on the bench. Summer signing Fabio Vieira is back in training but isn’t in the squad on matchday.

Reiss Nelson is the only player missing through injury. Players likely on their way to new clubs – right-back Hector Bellerin and goalkeeper Alex Runarsson – have been left out of the squad altogether.

Arsenal starting line-up (4-2-3-1, right to left): 1-Aaron Ramsdale (GK) – 4-Ben White, 12-William Saliba, 6-Gabriel, 35-Oleksandr Zinchenko – 5-Thomas Partey, 34-Granit Xhaka – 7-Bukayo Saka, 8-Martin Odegaard, 11-Gabriel Martinelli — 9-Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal substitutions (9): 30 – Matt Turner, 18 – Takehiro Tomiyasu, 16 – Rob Holding, 3 – Kieran Tierney, 25 – Mohamed Elneny, 23 – Albert Sambi Lokonga, 10 – Emile Smith Rowe, 19 – Nicolas Pepe, 14 – Eddie Nketiah.

Ricardo Pereira (Achilles), Harvey Barnes (knee) and Ryan Bertrand (knee) remain unavailable for the Foxes, but manager Brendan Rodgers has a deep bench available. After all, he will field Youri Tielemans, which makes for a somewhat awkward situation given the numerous transfer reports.

Leicester City starting line-up (5-3-2, right to left): 1-Danny Ward (GK) – 27-Timothy Castagne, 3-Wesley Fofana, 6-Jonny Evans, 18-Daniel Amartey, 2-James Justin – 8-Youri Tielemans, 25-Wilfred Ndidi, 22-Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall – 10-James Maddison, 9-Jamie Vardy
