There may not be must-win matches in mid-August, but one can certainly make the argument there are not-lose matches.For all the subplots surrounding Saturdays marquee match and home opener for reigning champions Leicester City against Arsenal at King Power Stadium, one fact is sure to have captured both teams attention:Only the 1992-93 Manchester United side have won the title in the Premier League era after starting the season with back-to-back losses, an unenviable position either side could face if the other emerges victorious.For all the memorable moments Leicester City created in their stunning run to the top of the table, they had a forgettable one last weekend at KC Stadium. The Foxes became the first defending champion in the Premier League era to lose their season opener, falling 2-1 to a promoted Hull City side facing a spate of distractions and a lack of match-fit bodies -- the Tigers didnt use any of their allotted substitutions.Riyad Mahrez scored Leicesters lone goal, a penalty shortly after intermission, but Jamie Vardy failed to display the razor-sharp finishing skills that propelled the Foxes to the league title and a spot for him on Englands roster for the Euros this summer. He missed three opportunities, and the Foxes also missed departed midfielder NGolo Kante and suspended defender Robert Huth as they conceded goals on either side of halftime.Newcomer Luis Hernandez, again expected to partner with Wes Morgan in central defence as Huth serves the last of his three-match ban, is expecting his team not to panic and show the same kind of resolve that made them title-winners in the spring.I think now after we lost our first game its important to stay calm, Hernandez told LCFC TV. I know its not easy to lose the first game but we need to be calm because the league is about 38 games.Its a difficult game because Arsenal are a big team with really good players but were at home with our supporters. We know that Arsenals attacking players are really good with good technique. So it will be difficult for us but we need to play together like last season with high intensity and if we do that I think we can win.Mahrez also finally ended the drama surrounding his possible exit before the transfer deadline, putting pen to paper on a new four-year contract Thursday. The Algeria international reportedly had many suitors, including Saturdays opponents, but the 2016 PFA Player of the Year opted to remain Vardys running mate as the Foxes embark on their first Champions League adventure.Im happy to continue my adventure with Leicester City, he said. Its been a pleasure to be here the last two-and-a-half years, so Im going to keep going here. Ive achieved good things with this club.Im excited to see whats going on in the Champions League with big clubs and big players -- we will see. Its for everyone, not just for the players and not just for the club, but for the city and everyone thats behind Leicester City. Its the first time that we play in the Champions League, so its fantastic.While Champions League is old hat for Arsenal -- they will be in group play in Europes top club competition for the 19th straight year -- some of their shortcomings that also are old hat have already surfaced to put heat on manager Arsene Wenger.The Frenchmans inability to finalise a deal for Vardy after triggering the release clause in his contract rankled an already-agitated fan base. And those Gunners supporters were further unnerved with a 4-3 loss at home Sunday to Liverpool, prompting chants of You dont know what youre doing directed at Wenger as the lack of summer signings exacerbated an injury-hit squad also trying to rest players who appeared in the European Championships.Buying calms the fans down, but its important to spend but even more important to spend the right way, Wenger said Thursday. You do not sign players because you think it is important or not. It is about the availability of players … to find the players that will strengthen your squad is much more difficult.One of those three summer signings, 20-year-old defender Rob Holding from relegated League One squad Bolton Wanders, was clearly out of his element along with central defender Calum Chambers during a torrid 18-minute stretch in which a one-goal lead became a three-goal deficit with a half-hour to play.Holdings disastrous performance and the lack of bodies at the position may force Wengers hand to bring back Laurent Koscielny back into the lineup as Arsenal are reportedly trying to pry either Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia or possibly Jose Gimenez from Atletico Madrid. Gimenez is believed to have a release clause of £56 million, and it may take a minimum transfer fee of £40 million to land the 21-year-old Uruguayan.We are working very hard, Wenger insisted. You are absolutely convinced that I dont want to spend the money, but I would like to reassure you that we are ready to spend the money we have. As always, not the money we havent got (because) its not my money.Koscielny had resumed practice only last week after helping Les Bleus reach the Euro final, and both Per Mertesacker and Gabriel will miss four months and six weeks, respectively, due to injuries.German midfielder Mesut Ozil and French striker Olivier Giroud were also held out for rest, but Ozil could also be pressed into duty since Aaron Ramsey was forced from the loss to Liverpool with an injury just after the hour mark. Giroud, meanwhile, could be a more effective target forward who would let Alexis Sanchez play in his customary spot on the wing.Arsenal handed Leicester City two of their three league losses last season, including a 5-2 victory in the 2015-16 corresponding fixture. It was a wild end-to-end affair in which Vardy scored a goal, hit a post and dented the crossbar in the first 20 minutes and Sanchez bagged three goals in a contest devoid of defence.The Gunners then completed the double -- and extended their league unbeaten streak over the Foxes to 19 matches (13-6-0) -- with a 2-1 victory on Valentines Day. Denny Welbeck scored in the 95th minute as Leicester were unable to scrape out a point despite playing almost all of the second half with 10 men after Danny Simpson was sent off with his second yellow card on 54 minutes.Vardy converted from the spot in that contest, and Wenger is expecting another tough match from a Foxes team that now has a championship pedigree.They have exactly the same qualities they had last year and they are a team who are very quick on the break and defend well as a unit, he said. We have to address our defensive weaknesses from last week without compromising our style of play.We need to continue being very dangerous going forward and accept the way we play.

Miles Bridges Jersey . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The knock on Michigans basketball team -- that it relies too much on finesse and lacks toughness -- only resonates when the Wolverines arent contending for conference titles.From 2012-14, Michigan won two Big Ten championships and reached the national title game in 2013. Then the Wolverines missed the NCAA Tournament in 2015 and barely made it last season, and suddenly, the critics were out in force.Somehow, weve won championships. Weve went to the Final Four, weve went to the final two, right? And people still think we play like wimps, coach John Beilein said. If we can win two championships in the Big Ten every five years, Ill take it, and they can call us as wimpy as we want.The challenge for the Wolverines is returning to those heights where they can be one of the leagues top contenders. There are areas to improve. Defense is an obvious one, and if Michigan does take a step forward at that end of the court, the Wolverines have enough skillful offensive players returning that they could quickly climb back toward the top of the conference.Caris LeVert is gone after his senior season was shortened by injury, and Spike Albrecht is playing his final season of eligibility at Purdue. But neither of those players was able to make a full contribution anyway in 2015-16, and the Wolverines return several who did, including Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin and Duncan Robinson.Michigans hope is that new assistant Billy Donlon, who came to the Wolverines after six seasons as Wright States head coach, can give the defense some much-needed tweaks, if not a complete overhaul.Michigan reached the NCAA Tournament last season and beat Tulsa in the First Four before falling to Notre Dame 70-63 . The Wolverines led the Irish by 13 in the first half and were up double digits at halftimee before being outscored 41-22 the rest of the way.ddddddddddddBeilein called it an awful second-half performance and said it would not be acceptable.Here are a few more things to watch for Michigan:IMPROVED HEALTH?Injuries have devastated Michigan over the past couple seasons, with Walton, Irvin, LeVert and Albrecht all limited to some degree. Beilein is hopeful that run of poor luck has ended.Were as healthy as we have been in a long, long, long time, he said. We deserve one of those years right now.LEADERSHIPThe Wolverines had success relying on younger stars like Trey Burke and Nik Stauskas when they won Big Ten titles in 2012 and 2014. LeVert and Albrecht looked like they could be long-awaited senior standouts last season, but injury issues prevented that. Now its Walton and Irvin who are seniors.YOUTH MOVEMENTMichigans freshman class is highlighted by guard Xavier Simpson, who was ranked as the nations No. 57 prospect by Scout.com. Of the four freshmen on the roster, three are from Ohio, including Simpson.INSIDE GAMEWalton, a guard, led the Wolverines at 5.4 rebounds a game. Mark Donnal started 25 games last season, averaging 7.8 points but only 3.7 rebounds. Donnal had a couple breakout games offensively, including a 25-point showing at Maryland, but Michigan could use more consistency from the 6-foot-9 forward.STAFF CHANGESDonlon and Saddi Washington are new assistants on Beileins staff. Washington was on the staff at Oakland University over the past decade. Michigan was in the market for new assistants after Bacari Alexander (Detroit) and LaVall Jordan (Milwaukee) received head coaching jobs.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
