Stray pass from Ward, it falls to Nketiah whose first touch is poor and Choudhury gets back and clears the danger.

52' 

Rare move involving Maitland-Niles and Pepe with the latter unable to get a shot on target.

  • 2nd Half
45'

KICK OFF: We are back underway.

45'+2

HALF TIME: Somehow it remains 0-0. Maddison hit the post, Nelson missed a sitter, Sakha should have had a penalty to name but a few.

- 

45' 

We will have 2 added minutes.

43' 

We are approaching half time. This game should be 2-2 really and Arsenal will feel they should have had a penalty.

WOODWORK! Iheanacho backheels it to Thomas and it then comes to Maddison whose chip from the edge of the area hits the post.

37' 

We have had plenty of chances from both sides. But remarkably it remains 0-0, both keepers deserve credit.

35' 

Luiz is okay and back on the pitch.

34' 

OUCH! Luiz needs treatment after colliding with Leno in the box.

- 
32' 

CLOSE! Straight up the other end, Maddison's shot then seconds later Dewsbury-Hall fires an effort wide.

31' 

BAD MISS! That should have been 1-0. An Arsenal corner falls to Nelson and he put his shot wide with the goal at his mercy!

30' 

Plenty of goals flying in elsewhere, just not at the King Power. Arsenal looking more likely to break the deadlock.

29' 

GOOD SAVE! Pepe finds Nelson on the left whose shot is parried away from danger by Ward.

27' 

HUGE PENALTY SHOUT! Saka goes down in the box after tangling with Amartey. The Leicester man was the wrong side, very clumsy challenge. It should have been given but it wasn't.

- 
24' 

CHANCE! Nice move from the Foxes, it ends with Gray twisting on the edge of the penalty box and firing a shot narrowly over.

22' 

We approach the midway point of the half and surprisingly it remains 0-0. There has been some good service to the forward players.

20' 

That was a let off for the Foxes. Saka sends an inviting low cross right across goal but everyone misses it.

- 
18' 

No Guendouzi or Ozil in the Arsenal squad again tonight, seemingly there is no reprieve for the pair.

17' 

CHANCE! Good spell from Arsenal ends with Kolašinac bending a shot high and wide.

15' 

Rodgers will be pleased with how his side have started this game with the front three looking a threat.

13' 

The home side continuing to press. Maddison floats a free-kick into the area and Morgan nods it onto Gray but Luiz is in the right place to clear the danger.

11' 

It is potentially a big 90 minutes for Pepe, Arsenal's record signing who has yet to make his mark on these shores.

- 

Some lovely retro stuff.

8' 

Both teams going for an attacking 3-4-3 formation.

6' 

CHANCE! Albrighton with a lovely bit of skill to beat his marker and send in a low cross for Iheanacho whose first-time effort is saved by Leno.

5' 

It's been a lively start despite the number of players making their first appearance of the season.

4' 

CLOSE! Nelson wins the ball off Albrighton and curls a shot from around 20 yards which is well kept out by Ward. Its a corner to the Gunners which the visitors clear.

- 
2' 

CHANCE! Early one for Iheanacho, the balls falls to him outside the box and he lashes a volley wide.
