Arsenal return to England to resume their hunt for the Premier League as they travel to Leeds United this Sunday, so let’s take a look at the predicted lineup.
The Gunners were able to get one step closer to qualify for the Round of 16 in the Europa League. With the win over Bodo/Glimt, they have put themselves in a good position and will be happy before heading to Elland Road.
Aaron Ramsdale should be back in goal and will look to get a clean sheet. There will be changes made to the full backs with Kieran Tierney most likely dropping to the bench and Alex Zinchenko starting as the left back. Ben White will start on the other flank.
As for the centre back pairing, Arteta will go with his trusted duo of William Saliba and Gabriel. The two have proven to be a dependable duo and their ability to play a high line helps the north Londoners a lot in building their attack.
Thomas Partey will return to the starting XI and his experience as well as ability on the ball will prove to be crucial. The Ghanaian along with Granit Xhaka will help the visitors set the tempo and ensure that they have enough chances.
Bukayo Saka who scored the only goal in midweek will be on the right wing with Gabriel Martinelli on the left. Martin Odegaard will return to his role as the creator of the team. These three have the ability to change the outcome of the match.
There is some doubt over the availability of Brazilian Gabriel Jesus and it will be a big blow if the striker is not available for this game. But the indication is that he should be fit to play on Sunday and that will give the team a lot more confidence.
Arsenal have a chance to go four points clear at the top and that will give them a lot of motivation. If they can get a win at Leeds, it will show the other teams that they are serious about challenging for the title.
Arsenal Predicted Lineup Against Leeds United (4-2-3-1):
Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel, Alex Zinchenko, Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli, Gabriel Jesus
