Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Leeds United, Odegaard and Pepe start

Predicted Arsenal lineup vs Leeds United

Arsenal are scheduled to host Leeds United in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Gunners have recently lost their way with a three-match winless streak and that sees them languishing in the 11th spot.

They will be aiming to return to winning ways against Marcelo Bielsa‘s side, who are presently one point and one place above them.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Bernd Leno is available after serving a one-game ban. He is expected to replace Mat Ryan in goal despite the Australian impressing on debut against Aston Villa last weekend.

In the defence, a solitary change is likely. David Luiz has served a one-game suspension of his own. He should reclaim his central defensive role ahead of Gabriel Magalhaes.

With Thomas Partey out injured, Dani Ceballos is likely to return to the midfield after being an unused substitute in recent games. He should partner Granit Xhaka.

Further forward, we are fancying a couple of changes. Martin Odegaard may make his full Gunners debut in the place of Emile Smith Rowe, who could be offered a breather after starting nine successive league games.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not started a game since his absence for personal reasons more than three weeks ago. He may get the nod over Alexandre Lacazette up front as his pace could come handy against a vulnerable Leeds backline.

Predicted Arsenal XI: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding, David Luiz, Cedric Soares; Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos; Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Nicolas Pepe; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
