            Arsenal vs Leeds Match Prediction, Stats & Betting Odds

            After the international break, the Premier League returns on Saturday with everything still

            to play for. Arsenal and Leeds meet at the Emirates in one of the 3pm kick-offs, in a game

            that could have a huge impact on both ends of the table.

            The league leaders will be wanting to return to league action with a win to keep their lead at

            the top of the table. Arsenal go into the weekend eight points clear of Manchester City in

            second – albeit having played a game more than the Citizens. With City hosting Liverpool in

            a massive clash in Saturday’s early kick-off, Arsenal’s lead at the top could be down to five

            points before the Gunners’ game gets underway if Pep Guardiola’s side pick up three points

            earlier on. Alternatively, a City defeat could present Mikel Arteta’s men with a chance of

            going 11 points clear with a win over Leeds.

            The North London outfit have been in inspired form in the Premier League, winning their

            last six games on the bounce. Last time out, Arsenal comfortably saw off a managerless

            Crystal Palace at the Emirates in 4-1 win. Goals from Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, and

            Granit Xhaka put the Gunners three in front, before a late Saka strike confirmed the points

            following Jeffrey Schlupp’s second-half consolation for the Eagles.

            It’s now 12 goals and ten assists for Saka in the league this season, with the England winger

            continuing his brilliant form across the international break. The 21-year-old scored a

            wonderful goal as well as setting up Harry Kane in the Three Lions’ 2-0 win over Ukraine last

            time out.

            Leeds will also be in need of those all-important threep points, being one of those teams

            embroiled in an extremely tight relegation scrap. Just four points separate rock-bottom

            Southampton with 12 th -placed Crystal Palace, as those in-between battle to keep their place

            in the top tier. The Yorkshire outfit are in 14 th place, two points above the bottom three.

            With so many teams around them, just a couple of points away, the league positions could

            change dramatically depending on results over the weekend.

            Javi Gracia’s side have been in decent league form since the Spaniard took over following

            Jesse March’s dismissal in February. In the four league games Gracia has taken charge of;

            Leeds have been narrowly beaten away to Chelsea, drew at home to Brighton, and picked

            up two big wins against Southampton and Wolves. The latter came in their last outing, an

            enthralling 4-2 win over the Midlands outfit at Molineux.

            keeping the defender out for the rest of the season.

            Centre-back William Saliba is a doubt against Leeds after picking up a lower-back injury in

            the Europa League tie with Sporting Lisbon two weeks ago.

            Mikel Arteta will be sweating over the fitness of influential midfielder Thomas Partey.The

            former Atletico Madrid man was an unused substitute in Ghana's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Angola on Monday. The Gunners sent a club physio to Ghana in a bid to

            keep the player fit.

            Arsenal have been awaiting the return of Gabriel Jesus for months, and it’s a good job the

            Brazilian has back eased back into action in recent months, with fellow striker Eddie Nketiah

            picking up an injury against Everton earlier in March. The Englishman is expected to miss

            Saturday’s clash with Leeds.

            Kieran Tierney played a full 90 minutes for Scotland in their European Championship

            qualifier with Cyprus, before starting for the Tartan Army in that electrifying win over Spain

            at Hampden Park on Tuesday night. Tierney had a good game, but was withdrew in the 75 th

            minute, minutes after receiving treatment. It isn’t thought to be a problem though and the

            former Celtic man will be hoping to

            The big worry for Leeds is the fitness of Willy Gnoto after the talented youngster limped off

            with an ankle injury just 22 minutes into Italy's 2-0 win over Malta on Sunday. The 19-year-

            old has had hospital treatment and is a doubt for the weekend, but Leeds are optimistic that

            he will be fit in time for Saturday’s game.

            Max Wober is also a doubt for the Whites on Saturday. Wober was forced to withdraw early

            from international duty after pulling his hamstring during Austria's 4-1 win over Azerbaijan

            in a European qualifier.

            Struart Dallas and Adam Forshaw remain on the side-lines for some time with long-term

            injuries, whilst American midfielder Tyler Adams is set for an extended period out of action

            following surgery on a hamstring injury.
