Arsenal vs. Leicester City: Time, Channel & Lineup

Arsenal vs. Leicester City: Time, Channel & Lineup

Iheanacho, a £25million signing from Manchester City, came off the substitutes' bench and within minutes teed up Vardy for the victor in City's final friendly of pre-season against Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Spanish manager believes the signings were needed to freshen up an ageing squad ahead of the new season.

Alexandre Lacazette puts his goal-scoring abilities on display in the Premier League for the first time when Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Friday. Both players are entering the final year of their contracts.

"However, it's the Man City situation that's the concern and we've seen it all before with Robin van Persie's move to Manchester United".

The match will be televised live on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK.

"We were never close", said the Frenchman.

Arsenal have quite a healthy record when facing Leicester as they've won four of their last five games against the Foxes, including a double in their title winning campaign of 2015-16.

The Algeria worldwide has stated his wish to leave the 2015/16 Premier League champions, but Wenger insists Arsenal do not need the winger and were never looking to land his signature. But the solution is not changing players every season.

"In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players". In the middle of the transfer market it's hard to predict [the season]. Jose Mourinho's side play West Ham at Old Trafford, while Spurs travel to play Newcastle in what is perhaps the most interesting game of the weekend. It was one of the days of recent weeks for me because I know how important he is, not only as a player, he is a fantastic player, but as well in the group. Sooner or later it's going to finish.

"Sometimes because it's after World Cups or European Championships when we have many players who won't be ready to start the season."

Now before we go any further, it's worth pointing out that these type of offers can prove very popular with new customers.

He said: "Last season we were favourites too and finished 15 points behind and, from my experience as a manager, always in the beginning of the season, the new teams are the toughest ones. We've been courageous to the end and thank God we won the game".
