Leeds United will be looking to put their humiliating Premier League defeat at Manchester City behind them when Arsenal visit Elland Road on Saturday evening (17:30 UK time).

Marcelo Bielsa’s men have now won just one of their previous seven top-flight matches which leaves them sitting five points above the danger zone. As for the Gunners they’ve put recent setbacks in the rearview window and seek a third league win on the bounce.

Leeds United news

There’s a prevailing sense of ‘second season syndrome’ at Elland Road with Leeds United, who impressively finished ninth in their Premier League return after 16 years away, languishing two places above the relegation places. Marcelo Bielsa, no stranger to burnout, has seen his side lose narrowly in the final moments at Chelsea (3-2) before Manchester City (7-0) ripped them apart. To put all of this in some perspective they’ve conceded as many goals in these defeats (10) as they had in their previous 10 league games combined. The Peacocks haven’t lost three consecutive games in the English top-flight since April/May 2004: a run that included a 5-0 loss against Arsenal. In fact, Leeds are winless in their last 10 meetings with the Gunners in all competitions (two draws and eight losses) since a 3-2 victory at Highbury in May 2003. They’ll have to put that right without a number of key players including Patrick Bamford whom Leeds since the start of last season have averaged 1.6 goals-per-game when he plays compared to just 0.9 when he’s absent. Bielsa’s have won 41% of their Premier League matches with Bamford in the side (18/44) and just 27% without him (3/11).

Leeds United predicted XI: Meslier; Ayling, Cresswell, Llorente, Dallas; Foreshaw; Raphinha, Roberts, Klich, Harrison; Gelhardt.

Arsenal team news

Following their own back-to-back losses against Manchester United and Everton, which left Arsenal having suffered three Premier League defeats across four outings, Mikel Arteta’s men are back in the swing of things after registering home successes over Southampton (3-0) and West Ham (2-0) subsequently propelling them into fourth spot though United and North London rivals Tottemham who are two and four points behind respectively have games in hands. That being said, those matches need to be won, and Arsenal enter this weekend having won 10 of their last 13 away league games against Yorkshire sides and they’re unbeaten in their last six away games against Leeds in all competitions (four wins and two draws) since a 1-0 loss in November 2000. Arteta, who must do without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, can still call upon Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka who have assisted one another six times in the Premier League; among duos when both aged 21 or younger, only Red Devils pair Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney (8) have assisted one another more often in the competition’s history.

Arsenal predicted XI: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Saka, Partey, Xhaka, Martinelli; Odegaard; Lacazette.
