Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits his side has to be very careful in defence if they are to take anything away from tomorrow's game against Leicester City.
Both teams lost their Premier League opening game last week with the Gunners suffering a disappointing 4-3 home defeat against Liverpool.
They will face Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez at the King Power Stadium, two players who were linked with a possible move to the Emirates, but both opted to extend their stay at Leicester City.
"The challenge will be exactly the same [for them]," Wenger told reporters.
"They have the exactly the same qualities they had last year and they are team who are very quick on the break and defend well as a unit.
"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.
"The challenge for them is to do well again and to show that their last year was not a one-off. They need to be capable of challenging and will need to be to show if they can be considered as one of the top teams in England.
"He [Riyad Mahrez] has been outstanding.
"If you look at his numbers, certainly he was in the top three in the league last year. If you consider the number of goals and assists he had, he had the best combination in the league."
