Leeds United will lock horns with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday afternoon as they focus on grinding out a result on their travels. The Whites suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City last weekend which has drained their confidence ahead of this game.

Jesse Marsch could set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and will make a few changes to his first XI for this game. Robin Koch, Junior Firpo and Daniel James will probably get the nod to play from the start as Marsch looks to select a strong team for this game.

4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup To Face Arsenal

Defence

Illan Meslier will feature in between the sticks for the Yorkshire outfit despite shipping in four goals in his last league appearance. Pascal Struijk will operate alongside Diego Llorente at the centre of the Leeds defence as they try to keep the Gunners at bay during the game.

Luke Ayling will be named at right-back while Junior Firpo hopes to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Both of them will have to stay disciplined and put in a good display for the Whites out on the wide areas.

Liam Cooper is unlikely to be risked in this game as he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Midfield

Kalvin Phillips will operate along with Robin Koch in the holding midfield positions as they try to make life difficult for the home team at the centre of the park.

The gifted trio of Jack Harrison, Rodrigo and Raphinha will play just ahead of them as part of Marsch’s attack. Both Harrison and Raphinha will try to use their pace to get in behind the Arsenal backline on the counter.

Jamie Shackleton will offer cover for the midfield positions on the bench as he waits for his chance to influence the game in the second half if needed.

Attack

Daniel James will lead the line for the Yorkshire giants up top. He has to find a way to cause a few problems for Mikel Arteta’s defenders this weekend.

Joe Gelhardt will have to settle for a spot on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if required.
