Brendan Rodgers sounds like a worried man ahead of Arsenal clash

Arsenal are preparing to play in front of their own fans in their second game of the season against Leicester, and hoping to add another three points against a team that could only manage a draw against Brentford in their opening match.

The Foxes have not had a very profitable transfer window, and Brendan Rodgers has been seeing Arsenal bring in some amazing additions that have improved Arteta’s team beyond recognition.

Rodgers told the Metro: ‘Arsenal have gone to a new level with the three players who have come into the team,’

Saliba is a talented player, he’s gone away and got really good experience and you see him, he’s quick, he can dominate. He’s a fantastic addition and gives them presence at the back.

‘The two guys coming in from Man City have made a difference. They’re coming from a world-class environment. Jesus is a world-class striker.

‘You see his hunger and desire. It will elevate other players. Zinchenko can play in a couple of positions to the very highest level.

‘They have given the squad the confidence and has given Mikel the tools to play how he really wants to play.’

Rodgers is right to be worried as his side couldn’t beat Arsenal last year without the new addition. In fact Arsenal have won the last three meetings with Leicester, and with the Emirates crowd behind them, I am fairly confident that we will make it four tomorrow!

  1. He should be TBH
    Lost his goalkeeper
    Maddison and Tielemans both want out by the looks of things and I think they are The only club not to have bought a single player in the prem .
    Let a 2 goal lead slip on opening day
    Should be there for the taking .
    3-0 …3 points

  2. Of course Arsenal are likely to win but you don’t have to be a genius to work that out. The rich 6 win about 75% of their games against the other 14. As the concentration of wealth continues, the Premier League becomes even less competitive. Eventually, unless financial inequality is tackled a European Super League is inevitable whatever the fans of the rich 6 want

  3. Love the skew of this article, the team could only manage a draw against Brentford, do you remeber your results against Brentford last season?

    1. Beat me to it Scott – pride before a fall comes to mind!!!
      .
      I’m forecasting a 3-0 win…. if we continue to play like we did against Palace.

      1. Oh and dear old Bob Jones, come prepared for Saturday’s crowd – hopefully Leicester away fans will make more noise than their home fans once Brentford equalised 😷😷😷

    2. We beat Brentford 2-1 at home last year and there was a 17 point gap between us and your lot last season. We had the youngest side in the league and have strengthened unlike Leicester. Our home record was 13 W 2 D 4 L and +18 GD last season whilst you managed 4 W. 6 D 9 L and -9 GD. Just saying, I mean c’mon you beat Norwich, Watford, Burnley and Brentford away last year. 3 of them went down.

  4. Brendon Roggers and Leicester City always have a level of respect for us and it could be out of fear this time.

    I can sense the fear factor slowly developing back from our team and we need it to win some games before a single ball being kick.

    Brendon Roggers Leicester will be cagey and will want to hit us on the counter, but Roggers seems to have loss his mojo and am seing a little more than average goals in this one
