rsenal will have to make late fitness checks on a number of players ahead of today’s trip to Leeds following their involvement for their countries during the international break.
The likes of Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney got plenty of action, with the latter playing 300 minutes in total for Scotland.
Saka played over 200 minutes for England and Mikel Arteta said on Friday: “I’ll have to see today when he comes back how he’s looking and how he’s feeling.”
Arsenal will hope Tierney and Saka are both raring to go as they head to Leeds for what promises to be a tough encounter.
In attack, Arteta has a decision to make as to who leads the line. Alexandre Lacazette has struggled and so Eddie Nketiah could get a chance to shine.
Arsenal predicted lineup (3-4-3): Leno; Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka; Pepe, Nketiah, Aubameyang.
Venue: Elland Road, Sunday, 4.30pm GMT
TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League
Arsenal squad from: Leno, Macey, Runarsson; Bellerin, Cedric, Chambers, Gabriel, Holding, Luiz, Mustafi, Tierney; Ceballos, Maitland-Niles, Saka, Smith Rowe, Willock, Xhaka; Aubameyang, Nelson, Nketiah, Lacazette, Pepe and Willian.
