Leicester City-Arsenal live stream: Watch Premier League game online

Leicester City and Arsenal meet Saturday at King Power Stadium in a pivotal early-season matchup.

The Foxes currently sit in third place in the English Premier League with 23 points and can move ahead of Manchester City with a win over the Gunners.

Arsenal, who are in fifth place in the EPL with 17 points, can gain ground on fourth-place Chelsea with a win. The Gunners haven't won a match since Oct. 6 when they beat AFC Bournemouth 1-0.

In one of the most memorable sports stories in recent history, Leicester City won the Premier League title in the 2015-16 season. Since their triumph, they haven't finished better than ninth place in the table. A win on Saturday would go a long way to proving they are in fact a real threat to reclaim the title. 

Here's how to watch Leicester City-Arsenal live online:

When: Saturday, Nov. 9 at 12:30 p.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT

Premier League extends coronavirus pause, proposes 30 percent wage cut

The Premier League is pushing back its restart date indefinitely amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it announced in a statement Friday.

After bringing together the league’s top officials on a video conference, it was decided that the original hopes to begin playing again at the beginning of May were premature.

“It was acknowledged that the Premier League will not resume at the beginning of May,” the statement read. “And that the 2019/20 season will only return when it is safe and appropriate to do so. The restart date is under constant review with all stakeholders, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic develops and we work together through this very challenging time.

“The Premier League is working closely with the whole of professional football in this country, as well as with the Government, public agencies and other relevant stakeholders to ensure the game achieves a collaborative solution.”

Players also are facing a wage reduction of up to 30 percent as the league deals with the fallout from the coronavirus outbreak.

Until health officials declare that social distancing regulations can be lifted, don’t expect to see much in the way of live sports.

Best Premier League season storylines before coronavirus suspension

The Premier League suspending its season last month due to the global coronavirus pandemic delayed Liverpool’s inevitable clinching of their first top-flight title in three decades by at least two months.

The Reds, who were six points from winning their first-ever Premier League title, won’t lift the trophy until May at the absolute earliest. The season is suspended through at least April 30, and league executives reportedly will discuss what the remainder of the season could look like in a Friday conference call.

There wasn’t much drama remaining in Liverpool’s title challenge, but the same couldn’t be said for the rest of the Premier League by the time it closed its doors. Every club had at least nine matches remaining, with multiple spots for next season’s European competitions, all three relegation places still up for grabs and bragging rights in some of England’s best rivalries still unsolved

Which storylines would’ve captured our attention? Here are the five we’d be most closely monitoring had the Premier League season continued uninterrupted.
