Ndidi, Iheanacho In Action, Iwobi Benched Arsenal Survive Leicester Scare

Anthony Martial plays for Manchester United versus West Ham in the Premier League

GETTY France ace Anthony Martial has been linked with Arsenal Inter Milan and Tottenham this summer

A lot has changed since these two sides last met in April when Arsenal snatched a late slim 1-0 win gifted the Gunners courtesy of an own goal by Robert Huth.

Leicester City rolled into the Emirates Stadium on Friday night and led the Gunners 3-2 with seven minutes left for what looked like a shock win. And once again, Arsenal were statuesque at a set piece, allowing Vardy to bustle to the front post and head past Petr Cech.

If Sanchez was looking for reasons to be optimistic about staying watching his team-mates go 2-1 down at home in their opener was not going to be one of them. But for Arsenal the same old problems at the back resurfaced in worrying fashion in their curtain raiser with Leicester.

The Foxes finished 12th previous year, and they're hoping for better this time around.

Tottenham - It looks like a mistake that it hasn't strengthened its squad, though perhaps it still will before the season kicks off. Spurs had a terrific campaign last season and had it been any other season they would have won it.

"After that we get the efficiency".

But after winning a record seventh FA Cup with victory over Chelsea, he penned a new two-year contract and his side's Houdini act against Leicester means that late-season momentum remains intact, albeit only just.

Pep Guardiola's made some big signings and already has quality all over the park.

Mesut Ozil played a pass in to Lacazette, who tried to turn and fire, but his shot was fortuitously deflected right to Kolasinac, who unselfishly tapped across for Welebeck to score. Central midfielders Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka were nervous on the ball and slack in possession to gift Leicester the ball in risky positions time and time again.

Vardy was then afforded far too much space by both the Bosnia global and Monreal for Leicester's second, after Holding had failed to block another Albrighton centre.

"We have to take the positives out of the game, we have gone toe-to-toe with Arsenal over 90 minutes and I don't think many teams will come here and do that". Somehow they got more than that.

It's well known that Arsenal want (and need) to move some players on, but even with that many individuals sidelined, Wenger can still call upon Rob Holding, Calum Chambers, Nacho Monreal and new signing Sead Kolasinac to make up his back three.
