This season they won their first game and showed they are really serious in this match against Leicester City. Arsenal won this match with 4-2, thanks to goals by Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli and Granit Xhaka. On own goal by Saliba and a goal by James Maddison gave Leicester their two goals. With 6 from 2 it’s a perfect start for the Gunners.
