Brendan Rodgers sends out a warning to Arsenal after fixture announcement

Brendan Rodgers Leicester City side will take on Arsenal in gameweek 2 of the 2022-23 Premier League season, and the manager claims his side will show what they ‘are capable’ of.

The Gunners have far from the toughest schedule where the opening weeks are concerned, but their clash with the Foxes on August 13 will likely pose as their biggest match of August, and Rodgers has claimed that he is eyeing a positive start to the season.

“We’re expecting another competitive and challenging Premier League campaign, and our opening fixture at home against Brentford will be a great test for us,” Rodgers is claimed They’re a good team who carry plenty of threats, but we’ve got a talented group who will be looking to start the season positively.

“To play three of last season’s top six in our opening six games is a challenge for any side, but also an opportunity for us to put a marker down by showing ourselves and our fans what we are capable of as a team.”

Leicester have been a difficult team to come up against for most of the bigger sides in recent seasons, and we are no exception to that, with Jamie Vardy regularly spoiling the party where we are concerned.

Our relatively routine start to the new season could well work against us, although we would be crazy to underestimate the likes of Palace or Leicester who we will face in the opening two gameweeks, and we could really do with the club wrapping up our transfers nice and early so we are ready to get the new term underway with a bang.

  1. Hi, Patrick, with Vieira being very similer to David Silva and our chase for Jesus looking good, Tielsman a De Bryune type player are we now Man City light. A drop down from being Barca light but not a bad start from Arteta

  2. OT
    With the new seasons fixtures out, I would only like to say, the sooner the top four teams of last season lose, the better for us to hold onto our invincible trophy.

    And to add more.
    August month must be a complete whitewash winning month for us. This time we must make sure that we bury the so called small teams alive. (my type of smallteams being the ones that finished below us last season albeit some of them have beaten us in our last encounter)

    From there onwards, we can move forward and see what to do when it comes to the tigers of the premier league.


  3. Leicester are a good team and so are Crystal Palace. Over the course of the season, there are no easy games and our losses last season to CP, Brighton and Southampton have shown not to take any team lightly. All teams are competitive and give their best on the field. That said, I hope we wrap up our required transfers asap, Vieira has almost come in, a striker, a full back and possibly another midfielder like Tielemans should complete our transfer business. It gives more time to the new players to accustom to the team if the transfers are finished early.

  4. If you asked Leicester fans which midfielder they would least like to lose it would be:

    1. Maddison
    2. Ndidi
    3. Tielemans

    That should give Arsenal fans food for thought.
