Leicester City’s started the season off on the wrong foot, losing a disappointing 2-1 match with Hull City. This was a historic loss, as the Foxes became the first defending champion in the Premier League era to lose their season opener, per Yahoo Sports. Too many injured players and distractions now put the Foxes facing some dire consequences.
How so? Well, only one team has won the Premier League title after losing their first two games – the 1992-93 Manchester United squad. If Leicester drops two games in a row, it could spell their doom at possibly repeating as champs.
“It’s a difficult game because Arsenal are a big team with really good players but we’re at home with our supporters,” Luis Hernandez, 27, a newcomer to Leicester City, said ahead of the game. “We know that Arsenal’s attacking players are really good with good technique. So it will be difficult for us but we need to play together like last season with high intensity and if we do that I think we can win.”
Arsenal is in a similar boat. They fell, 4-3, to Liverpool at Emirates Stadium, in their home opener. Losing in front of the home crowd at the start of the season? Ouch. Will Arsenal be able to avoid their second consecutive loss? Or will they go down in flames?
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Will Arsenal be on target with the Foxes or will Leicester City recapture their winning magic?
