An Arsenal team who just cannot stop winning is ready to meet Leeds, who is yet to taste victory since August. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and bonuses for the Premier League.
Let’s check the latest Premier league odds, stats, injury reports, and Premier league lines for Leeds vs Arsenal. We’ve plenty of Premier league be+ tting odds for you to consider.
Leeds: Disappointing Form
A notable fall from grace has occurred at Elland Road, as Leeds has gone from picking up seven points from their opening three fixtures to failing to win any of their last five amid a lack of attacking firepower. With just nine points to their name, they are sitting 14th in the standings, just three points above the red zone.
They enter this clash on a poor run of form, having earned just two points from their previous five league matches. However, Jesse Marsch’s teams are known for their high press, which, when executed effectively, can be extremely dangerous. Leeds’ 3-0 victory over Chelsea in August was a great example, but since then, the hosts looked disjointed and unorganized at the back.
Leeds is not one of the teams that just sit back and defend, and that’s why most of their games are high-scoring affairs. Luis Sinisterra returns from suspension and is expected to take the place of Jack Harrison in the starting lineup. Stuart Dallas, Leo Fuhr Hjelde, and Adam Forshaw remain out of contention, while Junior Firpo is expected to overcome a knock and make himself available. Leeds’ lack of killer instinct should be the key to this clash, so if you’re betting online, make sure you avoid backing them.
Arsenal: Superb Form
The Gunners have been in superb form and should be able to record another victory when they visit Elland Road this weekend. They will look to continue their stellar start to the Premier League campaign and secure their top spot with another EPL win. With Manchester City not in action until their trip to Anfield on Sunday, Arsenal could temporarily go four points clear at the top.
The Gunners are daring to dream of clinching a first top-flight title since 2004 after winning eight of their opening nine league games. They outplayed Liverpool last weekend, beating them 3-2, and Mikel Arteta’s tactical choice to start Takehiro Tomiyasu as left back worked to perfection.
What we love about Arsenal is how they change the system week in and week out. For example, they played with long balls against the Reds last weekend instead of their usual build-up play from the back, and it paid off. They’ve only kept three clean sheets in nine league games thus far, but they are scoring more than their opponents being outstanding in the final third.
Emile Smith Rowe and Mohamed Elneny are both absent for the long term, while Oleksandr Zinchenko is rated as doubtful with a calf problem. Arteta decided to rest many of his key players in the Europa League midweek action, so the fatigue factor is not there. We will definitely continue to include Arsenal in our soccer picks and parlays.
Leeds vs Arsenal Head-to-Head
The Gunners are unbeaten in their last nine meetings against Leeds, winning seven of those matches and each of the last four. There have been three or more goals scored in all of Arsenal’s league fixtures since the season opener against Crystal Palace. Gabriel Martinelli scored a brace last time the two teams played each other at this venue. Leeds is winless in their previous five EPL games, losing three in the process.

Leeds vs Arsenal Prediction
Despite being on the road, the leaders enter this clash as heavy favorites priced at -180 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at three.
It is hard to look past an away win here, given the respective form of both sides and how Arsenal has been able to outplay teams outside the top six both at home and on the road. They should have enough to score at least three goals on their own, so we expect a high-scoring affair between the two sides. Moreover, Arsenal managed to keep three clean sheets in four away games.
