Team News: Arsenal
Thomas Partey (Unknown Injury) and Kieran Tierney (Knee Surgery) won’t be available for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta.
It’s our opinion that The Gunners will possibly make use of the 4-2-3-1 formation for this one, utilising Aaron Ramsdale, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Rob Holding, Gabriel, Nuno Tavares, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka, Martin Oedegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and Edward Nketiah.
Team News: Leeds United
Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Patrick Bamford (Foot Injury), Tyler Roberts (Thigh muscle rupture) and Adam Forshaw (Fractured Kneecap) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We’re of the thinking that The Whites will likely utilise a 4-2-3-1 lineup by sending out Illan Meslier, Luke Ayling, Robin Koch, Liam Cooper, Junior Firpo, Mateusz Klich, Kalvin Phillips, Raphinha, Rodrigo, Jack Harrison and Daniel James.
Leeds United won’t find it easy at all to break down a Arsenal lineup who will most probably own this match if all goes as we expect it to.
Our selection here is for a very comprehensive 3-0 win for Arsenal at the end of the game.
