Leeds will be pleased they don’t have to play Man City every week as they were swatted aside 7-0 in midweek by the league leaders. It continues a poor run of form for the Yorkshire side who are now winless in three and have won just one of their last seven. At Elland Road, United are unbeaten in five with three of these finishing in score draws.
Arsenal impressed in midweek as they saw off West Ham 2-0 at the Emirates thanks to a goal each from Gabrielle Martinelli and Emile Smith-Rowe. The result means it is three wins and three defeats in the last six for the North London outfit. Away from home, the Gunners have lost their last three but these included games at Anfield and Old Trafford.
Leeds vs Arsenal Predictions
The hosts were poor in midweek and what was noticeable was the way Pep instructed his front four to move around the pitch to disrupt the man-to-man marking. Arteta will have noticed that and the Gunners biggest strength is the flexibility of the front four so we could get a repeat tactically here and with the same result. Take Arsenal to win this one.
Bukayo Saka was excellent in midweek and was unlucky not to score. His pace and movement is frightening and he could have a field day against a Leeds side badly missing holding midfielder Kalvin Phillips so back him to net at any time.
