0

Mikel Arteta’s side have just achieved back-to-back home wins against Southampton and West Ham. They will however be deprived of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who is “not available for selection” according to his manager following his latest disciplinary offense.

Despite their impressive performances at home, Arsenal have lost their last three away games in the Premier League and conceded nine goals in the process. They’ve won just two of their last eight on the road.

Leeds are undefeated in their last five home league games (W2 D3) but suffer from patchy form and a string of injuries with eight first-team players unavailable.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have lost their last two Premier League games, conceding as many goals (10) as they had in their last 10 league games combined. Bielsa took responsibility for his side’s 7-0 loss to Manchester City, saying “What I offered was not good enough”. They haven’t lost three consecutive top-flight games since April / May 2004.

Their long list of injuries includes Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford. Since being promoted to the Premier League, Leeds have lost 11 of their 14 appearances when Phillips was out and eight of 11 when Bamford missed their game.

Team news

Besides Aubameyang, no.2 Bernd Leno (groin) and defender Sead Kolasinac (ankle) will be absent.

Leeds are without Daniel James and Jamie Shackleton after suffering groin and Achilles tendon injuries respectively in their 7-0 loss to City on Tuesday. This means Leeds will be without eight first team players.

Phillips, Bamford, Liam Cooper (all in hamstrings), Rodrigo (heel) and Pascal Struijk (foot) are all absent while Junior Firpo will serve a one-game suspension.

Robin Koch, who has recovered from his pelvic injury, is available for the first time since day one of the season.
