Leeds United will entertain Arsenal at Elland Road this Sunday as both sides hope to pick up all three points in the Premier League. The Whites suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace recently. In contrast, the Gunners are flying high at the moment after securing a hard-fought 3-2 win over Liverpool in their last league outing.

Leeds United vs Arsenal: Talking Tactics

Jesse Marsch will probably set his team up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and could ask his players to press the Gunners in patches and try to catch them napping on the counter.

Mikel Arteta will opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to instruct his men to keep the ball moving well and create enough chances to win this contest away from home.

Leeds United

Marsch will be without Stuart Dallas (thigh), Leo Fuhr Hjelde (appendectomy) and Adam Forshaw (ankle) for this clash at home. Furthermore, Archie Gray will also miss this game but is still recovering well from his recent injury.

Leeds United Predicted XI

Meslier; Kristensen, Koch, Cooper, Struijk; Adams, Roca; Aaronson, Rodrigo, Sinisterra; Bamford



Oleksandr Zinchenko is a significant concern for this game as he continues to recover from an injury. Otherwise, Arteta has no fresh injury concerns to deal with this weekend.

Arsenal Predicted XI

Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus

Key Men

Leeds United

Leeds will depend on Tyler Adams and Marc Roca to make life difficult for the Gunners at the centre of the park. At the other end, both Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Whites in the final third.

Marsch will also rely on Illan Meslier to make a few solid saves at the back if Leeds are to stand a chance of claiming something from this home game at Elland Road.


Martin Odegaard will be the chief orchestrator for Arsenal in the opponent’s half. Both Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus are expected to be major threats on the attacking end of the field, especially on the counter this weekend.
