Brothers at war! Iheanacho, Iwobi trade tackles, as Leicester battles Arsenal in EPL opener

By Monica Iheakam

The duo of Super Eagles young stars, Kelechi Iheanacho and Alex Iwobi would be at daggers drawn when the 2017/ 18 English Premier League gets underway at the Emirates Stadium this evening.

Iheanacho, is expected to make his  debut for Leicester, who are starting the campaign for the first time under Craig Shakespeare.

For the first time in more than two decades, Arsenal are heading into a new season without the Champions League campaign to contend with.

The Foxes are yet to beat Arsenal in the Premier League. They are winless in 21 top-flight games against the Gunners, losing 14 of those matches.

Arsenal have won 10 successive home games against Leicester, their longest winning streak at home against a particular opponent.

Leicester boosted by the signings of Kelechi Iheanacho, Harry Maguire and Vincente Iborra for a combined fee of £52.5m, the target for Shakespeare will now be to finish in the top half of the table.
