Team news

Two of Arsenal’s big names – Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey – are expected to miss the opener due to injury.

However the team managed to beat Chelsea to win the Community Shield last weekend without either player.

Injury will also hamper Leicester’s squad, with Islam Slimani still recovering from a leg injury.

However the former champions are expected to field new signings Harry Maguire and Vicente Iborra as starters.
