Manager – Aresne Wenger.
Arsenal started the transfer window on a high after signing Granit Xhaka for ₤35 million but they were back to their old antics as continuously being linked with some star players but unable to sign any one of them in the end. They still look incomplete and Aresne Wenger will have to bring in some much needed reinforcements because even a fourth place this season looks quite hard.
Leicester City 3 – 2 Arsenal.
