Predictions & Odds for Arsenal vs Leeds

We're bringing you our Premier League predictions for Arsenal's home game against Leeds this Saturday. The Gunners will be expected to secure all 3pts when they take on a relegation-battling Leeds side this weekend. We're expecting an action-packed 90-minutes between these two clubs and plenty of goalmouth action.

Arsenal & Both Teams to Score

Our first Arsenal vs Leeds prediction is for a home win and both teams to score. Arsenal have won six of their last seven matches against Leeds in all competitions and both teams have scored in three of the pair's last five head-to-heads. Both teams have also scored in four of Arsenal's last five outings as well as each of Leeds' last two league games, but the Gunners have won four of their last six fixtures and head into the game as the form side.

Bukayo Saka to Score

Our second Arsenal vs Leeds prediction is for Saka to score at any time in the match. Bukayo Saka has been one of Arsenal's outstanding players this season, chipping in with 12-goals and 10-assists in the Premier League alone. Saka scored twice in Arsenal's last Premier League game and we're backing the young England international to score against Leeds on Saturday, helping to guide the Gunners to yet another 3pts.

Arsenal vs Leeds Lineups

Arsenal

The Gunners secured a comfortable 4-1 victory at home to Crystal Palace last time out with a goal from Martinelli getting the ball rolling in the 28th-minute. Saka doubled the home side's lead just before the break and early in the second half, Xhaka made it 3-0. Schlupp pulled a goal back for the visitors just after the hour mark but Saka's second goal of the game restored Arenal's 3-goal lead and made sure of the points. Tomiyasu, Nketiah, Elneny and Saliba look set to miss out through injury this weekend, while there are some doubts over Partey as well.

Predicted Lineup – Ramsdale (GK), Holding, Gabriel, White, Xhaka, Partey, Zinchenko, Ødegaard, Saka, Trossard & Martinelli 

Leeds

Leeds certainly had luck on their side away at Leeds in their last league game but most would argue that they deserved to win the game on the balance of play. Goals from Harrison, Ayling and Kristensen saw Leeds move 3-0 clear at Molineux but Wolves pulled a couple of goals back before a stoppage-time effort from Rodrigo secured a 4-2 victory for the away side. Dallas, Forshaw and Adams are expected to miss the trip to the capital through injury, while Wober and Gnonto will face late fitness tests.

Predicted Lineup – Meslier (GK), Ayling, Koch, Firpo, Wöber, Roca, Harrison, McKennie, Aaronson, Bamford & Gnonto

Player to Watch: Martin Odegaard

Arsenal's 24-year-old midfielder is enjoying the best football of his career and if anyone in the Gunners team is going to lead them to victory this weekend then our bet would be on the talented Norwegian.

Odegaard has become a playmaker and goalscorer with the Gunners, setting up 6-goals and scoring 10 in the Premier League alone. Only Saka and Martinelli have scored more league goals than Odegaard in this Arsenal side but it is the former Real Madrid man that controls games for his side, setting the tempo, and we expect more of the same against Leeds on Saturday.
