Sports Arsenal vs. Leicester City live score, updates, highlights as Gabriel Jesus double has Gunners up
The Gunners beat the Andalusian, in a friendly, in the form of a tennis score. © supplied by football 365 Arsenal Jesus is good for morale. If the results of the preparation matches do not necessarily give the tendency to come in competition, Arsenal can at least be satisfied with the pleasure taken by the players trained by Mikel Arteta. Saturday, the London training completed its series of friendly meetings with a new card.
Are Arsenal for real in 2022/23? The Gunners will seek to continue to answer that question with their first home Premier League match of the season. The Emirates crowd will be rocking as the Gunners aim to start with a perfect record after two matchdays.
Arsenal are not only favorites to beat Leicester at home, but they are also reportedly closing in on signing one of Leicester City's best players in midfielder Youri Tielemans. The Belgian will still play for the Foxes against the team that is supposedly seeking to secure his services, making for a compelling subplot.
Leicester will need all the help they can get against an Arsenal side that has carried its preseason form into the new campaign, coming away with a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace in the opening match of the season. Gabriel Martinelli scored the opener, and they sealed the result on an own goal. Arsenal's big signing Gabriel Jesus went scoreless on his debut in an official match and will be eager to get on the board in front of his new home fans.
Premier League top goal scorers 2022-2023: Updated golden boot rankings
Manchester City's Erling Haaland, Arsenal's Gabriel Jesus, and Liverpool's Darwin Nunez are among the favorites to challenge last season's Premier League top scorers, Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah, for the 2022/23 Golden Boot.The honor of the first goal of the 2022/23 Premier League season fell to Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli, who opened the scoring in his team's 2-0 opening day win over Crystal Palace on Friday. The other goal came on a Crystal Palace own goal.
A dose of Bukayo Saka, Jesus, and Martinelli is not the easiest way for the Foxes to get over their disappointing season-opening draw last weekend at home against Brentford, when they coughed up a 2-0 lead by conceding two goals in the span of the final half-hour. It was a bad result for a team expecting to contend for Europe again.

Halftime: Arsenal 2, Leicester City 0
Halftime: A well-organized Leicester made things difficult for Arsenal to start and it looked like the visitors might even nick a goal in transition. But then the Gunners' big summer signing Gabriel Jesus made the big play to get them on the board and that strike opened things up for Arsenal. Jesus got a second on a corner and then had two more decent looks at a hat trick. He'll want that third goal in the second half.

20th min.: Another Granit Xhaka run into the Leicester box and he meets a Bukayo Saka cross at the far post and it looks like his header comes off the post and off 'keeper Danny Ward. Xhaka looks up for it today.
16th min.: Yellow card to Wesley Fofana. Gabriel Martinelli burned by him on the left wing and Fofana held him back any way he could. On the ensuing set piece, a ball is sent into the box for a Gabriel header which is off the mark.
12th min.: Arsenal's Aaron Ramsdale has to make another play in his box to tip away a Leicester cross from the right, which was destined for James Justin. The Foxes are creating attacking threats, especially when Arsenal cough up the ball.
10th min.: Nice Arsenal combination around the Leicester box. The Gunners are poking and prodding and trying to pull the organized Foxes out of position. It's a patient, calculated Arsenal team to start.
4th min.: Leicester have the best chance of the match so far! It's Wesley Fofana dispossesses Granit Xhaka and makes a run into the Arsenal box, firing a shot stopped by Aaron Ramsdale. Strong start by the Foxes.
My CB Wesley Fofana.

The Gunners' squad is getting healthier with the returns of Takehiro Tomiyasu and Emile Smith Rowe on the bench. Summer signing Fabio Vieira is back in training, but not on the matchday squad list.
