Arsenal were victorious in the Community Shield last weekend

Arsenal vs Leicester What is the kick-off time date and odds and where can I watch

ARSENAL beat Leicester in the first match of the Premier League season - here are our Gunners player ratings.

In the past seven seasons, Wenger has presided over just one win on opening day: a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in 2014. However, Arsenal and Liverpool could well have something to say about that, especially if the Wembley factor derails Spurs.

Giroud's clever header in the 85th minute secured the points after Lacazette had taken just 94 seconds to make his mark with a header from Mohamed Elneny's curling cross, equalling the record for the fastest opening goal in a Premier League season.

But Arsene Wenger's double change turned the game, FA Cup final hero Ramsey drilling in an 83rd-minute equalizer and Giroud notching the victor two minutes later with a header that hit the bar and bounced over the line. Jamie Vardy and Alexandre Lacazette are our glorious present and future. So hard to choose between Spurs (Wembley woe?) and Arsenal (unhappy/without Alexis Sanchez, pictured below).

Meanwhile, Kolasinac, who joined Arsenal from Schalke and netted the equaliser against Chelsea in the Community Shield over the weekend, starts in a back-three that also includes Rob Holding and Nacho Monreal.

Even though they showcased most of their flaws on Friday, you can't fault the spirit of Arsene Wenger's men.

They sat back, forced Arsenal into making mistakes and had Vardy's pace on the break to hurt the Gunners.

"He is an intelligent player who can integrate our game well as we have a game backed on mobility, technique".

And the 30-year-old proved his worth with another vital goal after coming on as a substitute - but is hoping for a more substantial role at the club.

Both teams are out on the pitch ahead of kick off.

It has been just over three months since Antonio Conte completed Chelsea's turnaround from finishing 10th in the 2015/16 campaign to be crowned champions in the 2016/17 season and now Premier League is back again for its 25th edition. What's not unusual is that they appear to be a little less ready than some fans might like.

One new recruit, defender Harry Maguire, felt Leicester gave the hosts a run for their money and - despite heading back to the east midlands with nothing to show for it - believes the display will hold them in good stead.
