Arsenal vs Leeds United Match Preview and Team News
The Gunners beat Aston Villa 3-1 at home on Friday night, which extended their unbeaten run to seven games. That run hasn’t always looked convincing, with Arsenal needing an extremely late equalizer to draw 2-2 at home to Crystal Palace on Monday, but after a poor start, they are now up in the top half of the Premier League. With Arsenal not in Europe this season, the domestic cups represent not just a route back into European competition but also the only realistic chance of silverware. Mikel Arteta won the FA Cup in his first season in charge of the club, and winning more silverware would help to cement his position. Their more recent scorelines reveal that the Arsenal defense has shown much solidity. Arsenal has given the opposition little, with the tally of goals that have gone in at their end during their last six matches, standing at 4. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether such a trend might continue in this next match. Emile Smith Rowe shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in. He has good dribbling, and speed is his advantage.
Leeds are finding their second season back in the top flight, more difficult than their first. They needed a last-gasp penalty from Rodrigo to claim a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves on Saturday. That leaves them in 17th place in the Premier League, three points clear of the relegation zone. Leeds has only won two of their eleven games across all competitions. One of those victories came against Crewe in the second round of the EFL Cup, which was followed by a 0-0 draw at the Championship side Fulham, who they beat on penalties. It is worth noting that Leeds United has had real problems scoring goals over their last six clashes, recording the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those fixtures, The Whites have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 5. Kalvin Phillips has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Patrick Bamford was the team’s best player last season, with 17 goals scored. He is doing great in the penalty area, and goals are also expected from him in the Premier League.
