- Leeds v Arsenal (Over/Under - Under 2.5)
- Leeds v Arsenal (To Win Either Half - Arsenal)
- Leeds v Arsenal (Both Teams To Score - No)
For all the praise for Leeds United and Marcelo Bielsa, the Elland Road team have lost three of their last four league games with two straight ending in defeat. Leeds United are seven points above the relegation zone and are benefitting from the bottom of the table being very bad.
On Sunday, Leeds United welcome Arsenal at Elland Road. The Gunners sit two points ahead of Leeds United in the Premier League table. The Gunners have been just as inconsistent as Leeds United. Mikel Arteta’s team have lost four of their last six games. Goals have been in short supply with just nine tallied in eight games.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has struggled to live up to his new contract. He has two goals in the league with his most recent on matchday 7 against Manchester United coming from the penalty spot. These teams played in last season’s FA Cup with Arsenal winning 1-0 at the Emirates. After finishing the first half at nil-nil, Reiss Nelson scored in the second period to give Arsenal the victory.
Both teams are desperate for wins but for different reasons. Leeds United need to keep winning to move further away from the relegation zone. Arsenal need a victory to get closer to the European places.

Leeds vs Arsenal Team News
Arteta is sweating the fitness of defensive midfielder Thomas Partey. The expensive summer signing is recovering from a thigh injury. He is likely to play at the weekend. Calum Chambers is not likely to play. He is gaining match fitness after returning from a long-term knee injury.
Arsenal are without a number of players for the fixture. Midfielder Mohamed Elneny is ruled out after testing positive for COVID-19. Gabriel Martinelli is ruled out with a long-term knee issue. Pablo Mari is still ruled out with an ankle injury. Reiss Nelson is out of action due to a knock.
Bielsa could have midfielder Kalvin Phillips back from a shoulder injury. He is a possible returnee for the game after undergoing shoulder surgery. Jamie Shackleton is a doubt for the game with a muscle injury. Rodrigo is likely to be fit after missing the last few weeks due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Gaetano Berardi, Adam Forshaw, and Diego Llorente are all three ruled out action due to their respective injuries. None of the three players have a return date set. Bielsa will be hopeful that striker Patrick Bamford can get on the scoresheet. He has seven goals in eight appearances in the league.
Leeds vs Arsenal Prediction
These teams are both struggling for wins and goals could be in short supply on Sunday at Elland Road. Four straight Arsenal games finished with teams not scoring goals in the league. Three of Leeds United’s last five games in the league finished with both teams unable to find the back of the net. The two teams played last season in the FA Cup with Arsenal claiming a 1-0 victory.
Arsenal are the more talented team on paper, but can Arteta turn their fortunes around at Elland Road? They won 1-0 in the FA Cup against Leeds United last term. Leeds United’s last two games in the league both finished in losses. Neither game saw them win either half. They should struggle against the Gunners on Sunday at Elland Road.
Neither team are scoring goals. Three of Arsenal’s last four games in the league finished with under 2.5 goals scored. Three of Leeds United’s last six games in the league finished with under 2.5 goals. The Whites’ success this season has come in low-scoring games. However, their most recent games, back-to-back losses, finished with more than 2.5 goals scored. Bielsa’s team allowed eight goals in their last two Premier League games. Arsenal should be able to take advantage of Leeds United’s defence but the Sunday game should finish with under 2.5 goals scored.
Arteta’s team struggle to score goals. Just nine have been scored in eight games in the league. Aubameyang got a big-money contract in the summer but has not repaid the Gunners yet. He has just two goals in 717 minutes of Premier League football. His expected goals figure is just 1.35, which is very low, with his actual goals total being 2.0. Teammate Alexandre Lacazette has three goals scored in just 495 minutes of league football.
Leeds United look more EFL Championship at the moment than they did earlier in the season. They are struggling and Arsenal could take advantage of the Whites’ defence. Arsenal should get a win and improve their points total at Leeds United’s expense on Sunday.
