The Premier League is back! And following in their recent tradition, the season will be kicked off by their biggest attraction, by far the greatest team the world has ever seen, Leicester City.
This season it’s against some guys called Arsenal (who?) and, for the first time ever, it’s on a Friday night!. Which is great. As long as you live in the right time zones. If not, that’s the reason they put a computer on your desk, I’m pretty sure. You know what to do.

Leicester City Team News:
No Danny Drinkwater or Vicente Iborra for the Foxes, but new boy Kelechi Iheanacho should be available. Robert Huth and Islam Slimani are both back in training, but are doubts to play.
Arsenal Team News:
The Gunners have confirmed that Alexis Sanchez will miss out, as will long term injury Santi Cazorla and the suspended Laurent Koscielny. Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere, Shkodran Mustafi and Per Mertesacker are all lacking in fitness, so could feature but are unlikely to start.
Leicester City: pretty much what we expected, Iheanacho is on the bench
