Premier League LIVE: Arsenal vs Leeds United: Head to head; Probable Playing XI; Match Details; ARS vs LEE Live Streaming details
Arsenal have been struggling in the Premier League with two consecutive defeats in the last two matches. With their hopes of a top-4 finish all but dashed, it is now about finishing as high as possible. When they face Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday (February 14), coach Mikel Arteta will have a lot of issues to address.
While Arsenal’s scoring form is a worry for Arteta, he will also have to deal with injuries. With Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney ruled out of Sunday’s clash with injuries, Arteta has been dealt a double blow. But in the battle for 10th place, Arsenal will look to bounce back from the defeats and get back into the stride to aim for a top-5 finish.
Currently, Arsenal are placed 11th with 31 points from 23 eight points behind city rivals Chelsea who are placed fifth on the points table with 40 points from as many games.
As for Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, they have problems of their own. While the team will look to continue their winning form after beating Crystal Palace 2-0 at home, he will have to deal with Kalvin Phillips’ injury, who is doubtful for Arsenal clash. Furthermore, he will have to address his leaky defence that has conceded 38 goals in the league so far, more than any team in the top-10.
But Bielsa will be happy to know that his forwards are up to the task having scored the same amount of goals, only behind Manchester United (44) and Manchester City (39). In terms of points, Leeds have scored 32 points from 22 matches, winning and losing 10 each while drawing the other two.
