Head to head
Checking on their past head to head results going back to 01/11/2003 reveals that these fixtures have not been happy ones for Leeds United. They have not been able to get themselves any victories at all while Arsenal have just been stronger than them, running out winners in 83% of those games played.

Team News: Leeds United
Adam Forshaw (Hip Injury), Kalvin Phillips (Shoulder Injury), Gaetano Berardi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Jay-Roy Grot (Infection) will be missing for Leeds Utd manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Team News: Arsenal
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has a number of players out of action. Mesut Özil (Back trouble), Sead Kolasinac (Corona virus) and Gabriel Martinelli (Knee Injury) will not be playing here. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Mesut Özil and Sokratis.
Our feeling is that Leeds United will need to push hard to see themselves scoring against this Arsenal lineup who we think will likely manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore tipping a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Arsenal at the end of the match.
Should be an interesting one.
