Arsenal will face Leeds United as they make their trip to Elland Road on Sunday to secure all three points. The Gunners will come into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 win against the hosts in the Europa League contest. The Premier League leaders will be looking to maintain their position and widen the gap between them and Manchester City who sit in second.
Mikel Arteta will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation but is expected to make quite a lot of changes to the playing XI for this away encounter. Gabriel Jesus will return to the striker position to lead the charge against the opposition while Aaron Ramsdale replaces Matt Turner to operate in goal.
4-3-3 Arsenal Predicted XI Vs Leeds United
Matt Turner will get the chance to function in between the sticks for the Gunners hoping to put up a strong performance and earn a clean sheet. William Saliba will continue at the back alongside Gabriel who replaces Rob Holding at the heart of Arsenal’s backline.
Takehiro Tomiyasu will play in the left-back position while Ben White fills in on the other side as the right-back. Both of them will have to keep a good defensive shape at the back and will get forward to stretch the opposition.
Kieran Tierney and Rob Holding will provide cover for the defensive positions and could come on in the second half if required.
Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey will feature in the holding midfield positions as they try to dominate the battle at the centre of the park and distribute the ball efficiently to their teammates. Martin Odegaard will continue in the advanced attacking midfield position as he will be tasked with creating some decent opportunities for others around him.
Fabio Vieira will be named on the bench and will be called into the match in the second half if required.
Gabriel Martinelli will be eager to put his pace to good use on the left flank replacing Reiss Nelson, while Bukayo Saka returns to the right wing as he hopes to produce an influential display.
As mentioned earlier, Gabriel Jesus will lead the charge for Arsenal on the attacking end of the field as he fancies his chances of finding the back of the net and getting his name on the scoresheet.
Eddie Nketiah will have to be content with a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if Arteta opts to call upon his services.
