Leonardo Ulloa earned Leicester City a 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal, who dropped points for a second consecutive match on the road.

Earlier Alexis Sanchez had scored his first league goal for Arsenal, however they couldn’t hold on and Ulloa’s header earned the hosts a point.

Manchester City themselves lost 1-0 at home to Stoke City in the stand out result of the season to date.

Stoke defended brilliantly for 90 minutes, with Asmir Begovic rarely forced into action against the champions.

On the counter attack, the former Manchester United forward Mame Biram Diouf broke from his own half to score the only goal.

Before the end of the transfer window, Arsenal managed to sign Danny Welbeck for £16million, to replace the injured Olivier Giroud.

Manchester City allowed striker Alvaro Negredo to leave on loan for Valencia, leaving the club with three strikers for the season.

Arsenal thrashed Manchester City 3-0 in the season curtain raiser in the Charity Shield, with Giroud scoring the pick of the bunch.

Team news
Welbeck is likely to lead the line following a deadline day move, with Yaya Sanogo to miss out for the English forward.

Laurent Koscielny will recover from the knock that saw him substituted against Leicester last time out.

Sanchez will occupy a favoured wing role, although Aaron Ramsey is a real doubt, after going off injured on international duty.

Mesut Ozil will move into the number 10 role if Ramsey fails to recover, whilst Jack Wilshere is likely to earn a recall.

Manchester City will be hopeful that Stevan Jovetic will be fit to face Arsenal, despite picking up a midweek injury.

Edin Dzeko will start if Jovetic fails to recover, unless Manuel Pellegrini opts for a 4-5-1 formation, with David Silva moving in centrally.

Pablo Zabaleta and Gael Clichy are likely to return to full-back roles, after Bacary Sagna and Aleksandar Kolarov started the Stoke defeat.

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szczesny, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Wilshere, Sanchez, Ozil, Cazorla; Welbeck
