    Pedro has been ruled out with an ankle injury, so Chelsea will be without Pedro, Hazard, Bakayoko, and Moses. Conte has also said that Morata is not completely ready yet.

    Arsenal to lay a stinker to get Liverpool off that Coutinho heat.

    Sanchez and Koscielny out. Ozil, Ramsey, Mustafi and Mertesacker question marks. Drinkwater and Iborra out for Leicester.

    Arsenal cannot afford to get off to another slow start. 10 wins out of 11 since the formation change. Need to keep that run going.

    I like how West Ham manages to start the season in an injury crisis. Lanzini, Carroll, Antonio, Kouyate all out.

    Same ****, different season.

    Google tells me the odds are 10/3 for a draw and around 11/2 for a Leicester win. I'd take those two bets all day long.

    Leicester hasn't beaten Arsenal in the last 21 matches. Maybe their opening day struggles recently counter that.

    Arsenal owns Leicester though. Would be surprised if they got anything less that 3 points from that.

    And at least you don't have to wake up for the 7:45 game, to watch a team in turmoil at the moment go against a parked bus. :cry:

    Still better odds than "recent" 0 for 21 that the Foxes have put up on the Arse

    I couldn't fit Laca into my fantasy team so I hope its a draw as well. Unless of course Kolasinac gets a hattrick, then I'm okay with a Arsenal win.

    6 centerbacks on the roster, yet they're only starting 1.

    Classic Wenger.

    Wouldn't complain if Kolasinac still got a hat trick.

    The way Arsenal just dropped back and let Leicester attack them relentlessly is goofy. Very good assist there.
