The Premier League kicks off tonight with Arsenal taking on 2015/16 champions Leicester City on Friday Night Football.

The Gunners have a long injury list to contend with in their first game back, while the Foxes too will be sweating on the fitness of a number of stars.

Huddersfield Town kick off their campaign tomorrow against Crystal Palace, with both sides too having key man out of action.

Jonathan Hogg is set to miss the first few weeks of the season for the Terriers, while string-puller Yohan Cabaye has been sidelined with a foot injury.
