Match Today: Arsenal vs Leeds United 16-10-2022 English Premier League
Island Road hosts a fierce confrontation between Leeds United and Arsenal as Jesse Marsh hopes to stop Arsenal's winning streak.
Leeds United have been progressive in their style since the appointment of Jesse Marsh as manager, but results have faltered recently. The Whites have not won the Premier League since August, causing some concern among fans as their shares continue to decline.
Last weekend, as Marsh suggested, Leeds showed a different energy that we hadn't seen before this season. Despite their deserved lead in the first half, West Yorkshire's side were held back by goals from Oddson Edward and Ibricci Eze as Palace triumphed. While Leeds are an interesting side to watch, they lack ruthlessness in their game.
Having not won in his last five games, Marsh needs to change the results. Leeds also have an unbeaten record at home this season, which the manager hopes to protect when he welcomes league leaders Arsenal at Island Road.
Arsenal vs Leeds United
Arsenal seem unstoppable as they continue their impressive start to the season. After a superb victory over his north London rivals Tottenham, Mikel Arteta scored a superb victory over Liverpool last Sunday in the Emirates.
The result brought them back to the top of the Premier League. Arsenal now have a real chance, with the upcoming matches looking more favorable than their rivals.
Chelsea are the only team they face that are in the top six between now and the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Arteta hopes his team will continue to perform at the highest level. Arsenal secured another Europa League group stage win despite waning slightly in intensity against Bodou/Glimt in midweek.
The trip to Island Road is always tough, and Chelsea's performance earlier this season was proof of that. However, Arsenal are playing on a different level and Arteta is sure to be hoping they will be at their best to beat Marsh's players and secure another three points.
Leeds United vs Arsenal
Mikel Arteta will call up many of his regular staff for the trip to Island Road after most of them rested for the midweek trip.
However, the quartet of William Saliba, Ben White, Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard have played in Norway and will remain in the starting line-up against Leeds. Arsenal have won seven of their last eight matches against Leeds in all competitions. Arsenal have won nine of their last 10 Premier League matches.
Arsenal have scored at least two goals in nine of their last ten Premier League matches. Leeds United have not lost in their last five home matches in the Premier League.
Leeds have not won any of their last five Premier League games, and lost three in that period.
