That brings us to the end of an exciting game of football, and we have more action coming up as Manchester United look to fix their long list of woes against Brentford. Until next time, this is your host, Aditya Hosangadi, bidding adieu! Cheers!
Arsenal now move into the top four win two wins in their first two games of the season. When was the last time that happened? The Gunners face Bournemouth next, and will start that game as favourites.

Leicester City have only one point from their two games and find themselves in yet another hole. With matches against Chelsea and Man United in the next few weeks, things aren't looking great at the moment for Brendan Rodgers and his team.
Leicester City showed flashes of their potential this week, but were outdone by a visibly superior Arsenal outfit. Mikel Arteta has worked on several aspects of his team's play during preseason, and his efforts were on show tonight.

Gabriel Jesus scored twice on his Emirates debut, but tonight's best player was arguably Martinelli. The young winger was everywhere all at once, and capped off his wonderful performance, with a brilliant goal
Arsenal have announced themselves in the Premier League with an impressive victory at the Emirates. Matches against Leicester have always been dicey at best for the Gunners, but they've shown admirable resolve and consistency today. Brendan Rodgers' men did give Arsenal a couple of scares, but they responded within minutes on both occasions to put the game to bed.
FULL TIME: Arsenal 4-2 Leicester City
90+5' Leicester with a desperate attempt to pull a goal back, and there's a clash of heads between Daka and Tierney. Both players back to their feet, and that should be that tonight.
90+4' Great save by Ward, but Nketiah was offside anyway. Impressive build-up by Martin Odegaard there.
90+2' Tierney look for Nketiah with a long ball, and the young striker holds his man off with a shoulder drop. Maddison bears the brunt, and Leicester win a free-kick.
Five minutes of stoppage-time at the Emirates, and there may well be another goal in this.
90' Yellow card for Tomiyasu.
90' Danny Ward with another save! Nketiah channels his inner Gabriel Jesus and produces a powerful shot, but Ward does well. Arsenal are in no mood to relent.
89' An uncharacteristically loose pass from Partey sells Gabriel short, and the Gunners are lucky to win a foul. A Leicester counter was on there!
86' Leicester clear their lines comfortably this time, and Arsenal are back in possession.
86' Oh Partey with another near miss! Off the post, and Arsenal have another corner.
85' Another mess at the back for Leicester, absolutely no communication! Fofana and Danny Ward almost collida, Fofana gets in the way of his keeper's clearance and the Gunners now have a corner.
84' No hat-trick for Jesus, as he comes off to a standing ovation with Eddie Nketiah replacing him. Emile Smith Rowe on for Bukayo Saka as well.
83' Loud cheers from the Emirates, as Saliba dominates Patson Daka. The youngster's chipped in with a very measured performance today.
81' Oh Jesus, what have you done?! Saka with some stunning work and he puts it on a platter, but Gabriel Jesus misses an open goal! Hits the post from barely a yard away.
79' Corner to Leicester, and Maddison's looking a lot better in this second half. Another impressive corner, but Gabriel steps up to clear.
77' Another substitution for Arsenal, Zinchenko gets a standing ovation as he makes way for Kieran Tierney, who gets a roar from the Emirates.
Another quick response from Arsenal, and Martinelli steps up with a brilliant strike! Power, precision, and he gives Danny Ward no chance!
75' MARTINELLI! Arsenal respond immediately, 4-2!
75' Arsenal make a change as Tomiyasu comes on for Ben White at right-back.
Iheanacho finds space on the right and creates space with a brilliant reverse pass. The angle is tight for Maddison, but he produces plenty of power to pull one back for Leicester! Ramsdale should've done much better there.
74' JAMES MADDISON! 3-2! Leicester are back in it!
73' Beautiful play as Arsenal carve Leicester open again. The final pass is lacking, though, and the away side clear their lines in a hurry.
72' Jesus on the counter this time, and it's inches wide. He sees Saka on the right, and the youngster plays it back into Jesus' feet. He takes a shot, and gets ever so close to his hat-trick.
71' Chaos in the Arsenal box! Daka does well to wreak havoc, and Iheanacho nearly scores off his first touch!
70' Leicester make another change, with Kelechi Iheanacho coming on for Jamie Vardy.
Maddison is down now with a knock, and we have a brief stoppage. Both teams are taking a break from the heat, and we have another drinks break.
68' Jesus with a brilliant dribble! Beats three players on his way in from the right, but his attempt flashes across goal. 
67' Zinchenko attempts a cross, and screams out for a handball. Arsenal only have a corner, and they'll look to make the most of it.
65' Leicester are keeping the ball well at the moment, but they're yet to be incisive. Arsenal eventually win the ball back, but Partey's long ball has far too much on it for Saka.
63' Change in shape for Leicester, a double substitution as Patson Daka and Dennis Praest for Youri Tielemans and Daniel Amartey.
63' Martinelli's being marked by three Leicester players now. He tries to take on all of them, but Tielemans gets in his way. The Brazilian still manages to win the ball back, however, and Arsenal keep the ball.
61' Castagne's back-pass had a touch of crazy there! Too much pace on it, and Ward had to scramble. Made it look easy in the end, but Leicester really can't afford another blunder.
60' Maddison with a decent delivery this time, but Arsenal clear their lines comfortably. 
59' Good football from Leicester! Fofana and Tielemans link up nicely on the right, and the Foxes now have a corner.
A supposed calm start to the second half has crescendoed. We're now back to the frantic end-to-end game that we saw in the first half.
57' A penalty shout for a foul on Jesus! VAR has a look, and there's no penalty.
A nothing cross from Arsenal, and Ward should catch that easily. He's put off by Fofana, and drops it into Jesus' feet. The striker plays it across, and Xhaka has the simplest of tap-ins. A moment to forget for Danny Ward there. Two horrible errors in two minutes!
55' A blunder by Ward this time, and Xhaka scores! Arsenal 3-1!
A horribly unfortunate moment for the youngster, and a heartening response from the Emirates as they cheer for the Frenchman.
Leicester attempt a long ball, and Vardy is there making a nuisance of himself. William Saliba deflects the ball away from the striker, but directs it past Ramsdale and into his own goal. 
54' Own goal by William Saliba! Leicester pull one back, 2-1.
50' Leicester are struggling to get out of their half at the moment. The visitors manage to squeeze the ball away from Xhaka near the corner flag, but find Martinelli and Partey down their throats immediately.
48' A seemingly dangerous corner and Ward puts his body on the line to punch the ball out. Wins a foul in the process, and Leicester are in the clear.
48' Zinchenko releases Xhaka yet again down the left, and the latter attempts a cross. Arsenal win an early corner. 
47' Leicester look to make an early foray down the left, but the ball has too much on it for James Justin. The Foxes desperately need a good start.
46' The second half is underway! Arsenal get things started, attacking from right to left.
Right, we're seconds away from the start of the second half. Can Arsenal maintain their dominance? Or are we in for a massive upset today?
Elsewhere, Manchester City have taken a 3-0 lead against Bournemouth, and no, Erling Haaland hasn't scored just as yet. The other three games are still at 0-0 into half-time, you can count on us to keep you posted!

We'll be back in a few minutes for Arsenal's second half.
Leicester find themselves in another spot of bother, and have only themselves to blame for it. The Foxes started well but lacked their trademark ruthless touch, and Arsenal have made them suffer. They'll need a very early second-half goal to take anything away from this game.
Arsenal have probed and prodded, and they have two first-half goals to show for it. The Gunners were visibly superior in the first 45, and Arteta will want more of the same from his players after half-time. They dropped off in the second half against Palace, and they'll want to set that right here.
It's been Gabriel Jesus' half, and you get the feeling this will be his game. He's only one good strike away from a hat-trick on his Emirates debut, and how sensational would that be? A performance for the ages from the Brazilian.
HALF-TIME: Arsenal 2-0 Leicester City
45 + 5' Leicester with a late opportunity as they win a free-kick, but Maddison's set-piece is poor.
45 + 3' Another brief stoppage as Dewbury-Hall gets his studs stuck in the turf. A very unnaturally calm passage of play, this.
45 + 2' Arsenal passing it around and taking the sting out at the moment. They'll want their two-goal lead intact at half-time.
Four minutes of added time here at the Emirates.
Ramsdale did very well to move his body out of the way there. Vardy was on the charge, and the slightest of challenges would've give Leicester a lifeline.
44' NO PENALTY! Never enough contact there, and Vardy has a wry smile on his face.
Darren England is now running to the screen to have a look. Not much contact to begin with, and this could really go either way.
PENALTY FOR LEICESTER! Out of absolutely nowhere, Vardy runs through on goal, and Ramsdale is judged to have made contact. VAR will have a look at this..
41' Jesus denied again! Wonderful exchange of passes from Arsenal and Jesus is through on goal. The angle is tight, however, and Ward makes another commendable save.
39' Maddison not having his best game here. Vardy was on-side there, and all Maddison needed to do was punt it into his path. Arsenal get in the way far too easily, and Leicester's chances continue to dry up.
38' Oh, nearly a hat-trick! Brilliant long ball from Ramsdale, and Gabriel Jesus completely stumps Jonny Evans with his turn. Ndidi lends his keeper a hand though, and Danny Ward is able to stretch to make a crucial save. Arsenal looking dangerous!
A typical poachers' goal, that. Havoc from the corner, and Jesus is there at the back post to poke it in. A goal was always just round the corner, and it's no surprise that Jesus has delivered for the Gunners.
35' JESUS AT THE DOUBLE! ARSENAL 2-0!
35' Arsenal are squeezing Leicester into their own half. Zinchenko now with a lovely scoop towards Martinelli, and Arsenal now have a corner.
32' Jesus is running Leicester ragged at the moment. Nearly cuts out a back-pass to Ward, and then harries Tielemans to the ground. Concedes a foul in the process, but an impressive press nonetheless!
31' Jonny Evans escapes a lucky foul after bundling into Gabriel Jesus. The striker is down on the ground now, and play stops temporarily.
29' Martinelli pops up again with an excellent scooped pass towards Xhaka. Leicester get in the way, and win a free-kick after Martinelli fouls Fofana.
26' And we kick off again, Leicester have the ball and they'll need to bounce back quickly. Justin makes a good run on the left, but the flags up for offside.
A brief drinks break here as we all catch our breath.

You can almost hear the cries of relief from all those FPL managers out there. A goal worthy of Arsenal's number 9, Gabriel Jesus has arrived!
Arsenal's marquee striker produces a goal out of absolutely nowhere! Martinelli and Jesus exchange passes, and the latter finds himself on the left of the box with a wall of Leicester players ahead of him. Sees Ward off his line, and produces a delightful chip to score his first goal at the Emirates!
23' GABRIEL JESUS, THAT IS AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING GOAL!
21' End-to-end stuff here, and it finally quietens down after a foul on Saka. Martinelli makes another run at one end, only for Leicester to break with Vardy at the other. Arsenal manage to win the ball back, and Saka gets his heels clipped in his own half. 
20' Danny Ward to the rescue! Saka curls in a wonderful ball at the far post, and Xhaka makes another late run to head it in. Ward intervenes and deflects it onto his post. Arsenal are getting closer!
18' Partey nearly finds Martinelli with another through-ball, and the Brazilian makes a nuisance of himself on the left flank. Leicester are struggling to contain him at the moment.
17' Gabriel! The centre-back nearly gets his head to Arsenal's free-kick, but Amartey does just about enough to throw him off. No corner for Arsenal either, and we're back to square one.
16' Yellow card for Wesley Fofana.
Lovely play from Martinelli, leaves Fofana behind far too easily there. The Leicester man tries playing catch-up, and takes one for the team.
Leicester have been in good shape defensively, and they're snapping at Arsenal's heels. The Gunners are lacking a final pass at the moment.
12' Great build-up from Leicester, but Ramsdale intervenes! The Foxes tried to find Justin in the box but the Gunners' keeper leaps to punch the ball out. Justin was storming into an unguarded goal there..
10' Jesus into the side netting! Excellent movement from the Brazilian, but his headed effort smacks into the wrong side of the post.
9' Arsenal have settled into a distinct rhythm now, and they're being patient with their build-up. Jesus draws Fofana into a challenge and wins a free-kick near the corner flag.
7' Partey decides to look for Granit Xhaka's run with a sweeping pass, and nearly sends the Swiss international through on goal. Slightly overhit again, and Arsenal have to start again.
A fairly frenetic start to this game, both teams are going for the jugular here. A couple of clear-cut chances already, and there should be a few more in this first half.
4' A brilliant chance for Leicester goes begging! Vardy picks the Gunners' pockets, and Fofana bursts through the lines to take his shot. Ramsdale makes himself big, however, and smothers the ball admirably. Arsenal will need to be careful!
3' Oh, Maddison! A brilliant chance there to get Vardy through on goal, but the midfielder overhits his pass. Vardy had no chance there, but the Foxes are producing glimpses of what they're capable of.
2' Odegaard! Pristine piece of vision, but a slightly overhit pass that gets away from Gabriel Jesus. Arsenal want their early goal.
1' Arsenal win the ball back almost immediately, and Ramsdale punts the ball up to Saka. Leicester keep up with the Gunners' forwards, however, and keep the ball away from their box. 
KICK-OFF!
Leicester City get the ball rolling, attacking from right to left.
Right, so here we are. Less than five minutes from kick-off. Arsenal should dominate the ball at home, but Leicester can be terrifying on the counter. This has traditionally been a high-octane clash, and we should see plenty of action today. The players have taken the field, and kick-off is imminent!
For Leicester, Tielemans and Maddison keep their places in the side despite speculations about their future at the club. Jamie Vardy has tormented Arsenal in the past, and he'll be out for blood.

The Foxes have a few defensive issues to address, however, and cannot afford to slip up against an in-form Arsenal attack. We'll be back in 45 minutes with live action!
No surprises with the line-ups. Arsenal name an unchanged XI, and Arteta will have asked his team to replicate that first-half blitz against Palace. Martinelli found the back of the net last week, and he'll be looking to add to his tally. Zinchenko also stood out in his first game of the season and keeps his place in a fairly fluid back-line.
Leicester City XI (3-5-2): Danny Ward; Daniel Amartey, Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana; James Justin, Timothy Castagne, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans; James Maddison, Jamie Vardy

Substitutes: Caglar Soyuncu, Marc Albrighton, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez, Patson Daka, Nampalys Mendy, Daniel Iversen, Luke Thomas, Dennis Praet
Arsenal XI (4-3-3): Aaron Ramsdale; Ben White, Gabriel, William Saliba, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Martin Odegaard; Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesus

Substitutes: Matt Turner, Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Rob Holding, Mohamed Elneny, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Emile Smith Rowe, Nicolas Pepe, Eddie Nketiah

Arsenal vs Leicester City Prediction and Betting Tips | 13th August 2022
Arsenal won their first game of the season and will now look to mark their transition with a consistent run of results. Leicester are the first real huddle for the Gunners - they have been burned by the Foxes (and a certain Jamie Vardy) in the past.

Gabriel Jesus is their new target man. The Brazilian set Arsenal's pre-season tour ablaze with his performances and was pretty impressive against Palace. He'll be looking for his first Premier League goal with the Gunners this weekend.
Leicester will be out to prove a point. Some of their best players have been linked with moves away from the club, and Brendan Rodgers will need his squad to rid itself of transfer market distractions. The Foxes showed flashes of their unbridled potential against Brentford, and will now need to show some resolve to come good against the Gunners.
Hello, and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Premier League match between Arsenal and Leicester City! I'm Aditya Hosangadi, your commentator for the evening, and we should be in for another intriguing game of English football this evening.

Leicester City were at their prolific best in that first half against Brentford, but an all-too-familiar pattern reared its head as the Foxes squandered a two-goal lead. Arsenal also had a game of two halves against Crystal Palace but held their nerve to win their first match of the season.
