After two weeks of the international break, the club football action is back in town. This is going to be the last phase of European club football as we are just left with a few months to find out the league winners from different leagues. In Premier League action, Arsenal will be hosting Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
With every game, Arsenal are getting closer to winning the league title. They are currently at the top with 69 points and 22 wins. The top bookmakers have EPL odds out this tie.
Leeds United are in a relegation battle as the club are currently at the 14th spot with 26 points and only 6 wins. They are in for a fight to save themselves this season.
The Gunners have an opportunity to gain some home points and stay ahead of their opponents from the Premier League. They are currently 8 points ahead of Manchester City and with a win against Leeds United, they will be able to increase that point difference. However, it was unfortunate to see Arsenal exit from the Europa League after a penalty shootout loss against Sporting. The good news is that Arteta will be just focusing on the Premier League tournament.
Tomiyasu, Nketiah, Elneny and Saliba are all set to miss the upcoming fixture because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Ramsdale (GK), Holding, Gabriel, White, Xhaka, Partey, Zinchenko, Odegaard, Saka, Trossard & Martinelli
Before the international break, Leeds United scored a win against Wolves by 2-4. The win would have given them confidence for the rest of the tournament. However, the Peacocks are not having a good run this season. Their defence is turning out to be weak and the team is unable to achieve clean sheets. The inconsistent performances are causing trouble for the club.
Dallas, Forshaw and Adams are out of action due to their injuries and won’t be travelling with the team.
Predicted Lineup: Meslier (GK), Ayling, Koch, Firpo, Wöber, Roca, Harrison, McKennie, Aaronson, Bamford & Gnonto
Arsenal are on a winning streak of six Premier League games. Their recent loss was the Europa Cup fixture against Sporting. However, the Gunners have done great work this season and we predict a win for them against Leeds United on Saturday.
