Leeds vs Arsenal: Premier League preview

L

eeds and Arsenal meet in the Premier League on Sunday looking to make amends for humbling losses ahead of the international break.

The promoted side conceded four at Crystal Palace – which not many can say – before Aston Villa put three past the Gunners in one of Mikel Arteta’s worst games in charge.

Another defeat on Sunday will see the chorus of Arteta doubters grow, and he is up against one of the most experienced managers in the game in Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds vs Arsenal is scheduled for a 4:30pm GMT kick-off on Sunday, November 22, 2020.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Elland Road.

TV channel: The match will be televised on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League, with coverage from 4pm.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via Sky Go and the app.

Mohamed Elneny is out with coronavirus, joining Pablo Mari, Reiss Nelson, Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli on the sidelines.

Thomas Partey has a slight thigh concern so will be assessed ahead of kick-off.

Leeds will be hoping Kalvin Phillips recovers from a shoulder injury in time for the game.

Elsewhere, Rodrigo is self-isolating as a precaution.

Mikel Arteta says Arsenal performed below standards

Prediction: Leeds 2-1 Arsenal

Leeds can be thrilling in attack but very suspect at the back. Arsenal can be thrilling at the back but very suspect at the back.

Mikel Arteta will be desperate to make amends for the loss to Aston Villa, but he’s unlikely to get much help from Marcelo Biesla. The hosts may have the edge in this one.
