Arsenal vs Leicester City live stream details, TV channel information, kick-off time and team news


The wait is finally over. Arsenal and Leicester face each other tonight as the Premier league gets back underway at the Emirates Stadium.

These two sides came first and second in 2015/16 but both endured difficult campaigns last season. A strong start is a must for both managers ahead of what is certain to be a hugely competitive season.

Alexis Sanchez will play no part in the game but Mesut Ozil has recovered from an ankle injury and could start.

When is the game and how can you watch it?

The game kicks off at 7.45pm on Friday, August 11.

It will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Ultra HD

Arsenal team news


Arsenal will be without their injured forward Alexis Sanchez for the opening Premier League game against Leicester on Friday night.

The Chile international suffered an abdominal injury in training and could miss two weeks, while defender Laurent Koscielny is suspended for the visit of the Foxes.

Manager Arsene Wenger has several injury doubts as Mesut Ozil (ankle), Aaron Ramsey (muscular), Per Mertesacker (facial) and Jack Wilshere (leg) could all be absent while Gabriel (knee), Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin (both ankle) are definitely sidelined.

Arsenal squad: Cech, Ospina, Gibbs, Mertesacker, Holding, Monreal, Mustafi, Bellerin, Nelson, Kolasinac, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wilshere, Xhaka, Elneny, Ozil, Perez, Giroud, Walcott, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette.

Leicester team news

An injury to summer signing Vicente Iborra will prevent him from making his Leicester debut against Arsenal on Friday night.



The Spanish midfielder, a £12.75million arrival from Sevilla, sustained a groin problem in training this week and the club are waiting for the results of scans to determine the length of his absence. His absence is a blow with Danny Drinkwater (thigh) also out.

Fellow new recruit Kelechi Iheanacho has recovered from the toe injury he suffered against Borussia Monchengladbach last week and is available to make his debut along with Harry Maguire, with Robert Huth recovering from ankle surgery.

Leicester squad: Schmeichel, Jakupovic, Hamer, Simpson, Fuchs, Chilwell, Maguire, Morgan, Wasilewski, Benalouane, Ndidi, Amartey, Gray, Albrighton, Thomas, Mahrez, Musa, Vardy, Ulloa, Slimani, Okazaki, Iheanacho.
