Arsenal – Leeds : Preview & Prediction
Arsenal, 11th to 1 unit from Leeds, 10th, his opponent of the day, needs to take the 3 points of the win to pick up the European places. Currently 9 lengths from the Big Four, Arsenal must launch the final sprint 15 days from the end of the season. The players of Arteta remain on 2 failures in a row in the league at Wolverhampton (2-1) and Aston Villa (1-0) on February 6. The Gunners return to the Emirates Stadium where they recorded 2 wins in front of Chelsea (3-1) and against Newcastle (3-0) then 2 draws against Crystal Palace (0-0) and in front of Manchester United (0-0) last January 30. A victory against Leeds seems quite achievable especially as Marcelo Bielsa will have to compose without a few players. Indeed, Berardi, Forshaw, Koch, Llorente, Poveda and Rodrigo will be missing !. The promoted remains on 2 big performances away to Newcastle (2-1) and Leicester City (3-1) after having given in heavily to Tottenham (3-0) and Crawley (3-0) in the FA Cup a few days ago. Leeds United won in front of Crystal Palace (2-0) on the final day after losing to Everton (1-2) five days earlier. The Bamford partners (12 goals) have still lost 4 times in their last 7 outings … What left a lot of hope for the Gunners who had drawn the first leg (0-0).
Arsenal hung Leeds (0-0) in the first leg last November.
The Gunners eliminated Leeds United (1-0) at the Emirates Stadium in the FA Cup last season.
Leeds have lost 5 of their last 9 trips in all competitions.
The Gunners have been undefeated at home for 5 games (3 wins and 2 draws), including the FA Cup and the Premier League.
A victory would allow the London club to double the visitors in the standings.
Arsenal, unable to win in the last 3 days of the Premier League, hope to revive against the promoted Leeds to try to catch up on the top 5 of the championship.
