Arsenal are set to host their first home game of the season against Leicester City as they come to London with high hopes.
It has been over 50 years since Arsenal recorded back-to-back victories while keeping clean sheets in the opening two games of the Premier League, and Mikel Arteta will be eager to set the record straight.

Against Crystal Palace, Arsenal were strong in the opening 20 minutes, and despite losing some control of the game, they were strong enough to hold off Patrick Vieira’s charges.
Due to their inactivity in the market, Brendan Rodgers will have an identical squad to play with, except for veteran goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who has joined OGC Nice.
Last weekend, Rodgers was hopeful of starting the campaign with a morale-boosting win, and for a while, the Foxes were heading towards three points.
Timothy Castagne and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall gave Leicester a 2-0 lead, only to see Brentford hold them to a 2-2 draw. The result may have dented their confidence.
