Arsenal will return to Premier League action this Sunday as they take on Leeds United at Elland Road.
The Gunners have enjoyed a stellar start to the new season and are currently at the top of the league standings with 24 points.
They have won all their matches following the 3-1 setback at Manchester United. Mikel Arteta’s side easily prevailed over Tottenham Hotspur before also edging past Liverpool with a 3-2 victory last week.
The North London outfit were most recently in action at Bodo/Glimt, where Bukayo Saka scored the decisive goal to lead his side to a narrow 1-0 victory.
Leeds United, on the other hand, are enduring a dismal run of form at the moment.
They are currently two points above the relegation zone, winning just two of their eight league matches.
The West Yorkshire outfit barely managed to survive in the English top-flight last season. However, they have been far from convincing this campaign and if performances continue like this, then they could go down to the Championship by the end of the season.
Jesse Marsch’s side have been winless in their previous five Premier League matches since their brilliant 3-0 victory against Chelsea in August. They took the lead in their previous game at Crystal Palace through Pascal Struijk but goals from Odsonne Edouard and Eberechi Eze turned the game on its head, with the Eagles ultimately winning 2-1.
The Gunners boast an exceptional record against Leeds United, with the North London outfit winning 10 of their previous 12 meetings with the Whites.
Mikel Arteta’s side are currently in a buoyant mood as they are winning one game after another no matter the opposition. Many are even considering them as genuine title contenders but the Spanish boss doesn’t want to talk about that yet, focusing only on the next game.
Leeds United will be delighted that Luis Sinisterra will return from suspension for the Elland Road encounter. However, the Whites will be without Stuart Dallas, Leo Fuhr and Adam Forshaw due to injury.
As for Arsenal, Emile Smith Rowe and Mohamed Elneny are out of contention due to fitness issues while the availability of Oleksandr Zinchenko is also doubtful.
