Team News:

Leeds United
Leeds have been boosted by the news that Kalvin Phillips is back available after a shoulder injury, and he should go straight into the starting lineup for this one.

Rodrigo Moreno should also be available following a period of self-isolation, although he is more likely to be introduced from the bench.

Sunday's match will come too soon for Diego Llorente and Jamie Shackleton, while Pablo Hernandez has joined them on the injury list for this match with a muscle problem.

Patrick Bamford is expected to lead the line once again having scored seven goals in eight Premier League games for Leeds, although only one of those has come at Elland Road.

Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas; Phillips; Costa, Roberts, Klich, Harrison; Bamford
Leeds United Premier League form: WDLWLL

Arsenal
Thomas Partey has been ruled out of this match due to the thigh injury he picked up before the international break, leaving Arsenal potentially light in midfield.

Mohamed Elneny is unavailable after testing positive for coronavirus, which means that Dani Ceballos and Granit Xhaka could both come into the starting lineup for this one.

Joe Willock is also knocking on the door following some impressive performances in the Europa League, while former Leeds loanee Eddie Nketiah will hope to be involved on his return to Elland Road too.

Along with Elneny, Sead Kolasinac returned a positive COVID-19 test during the international break and so will play no part, while Pablo Mari, Calum Chambers and Gabriel Martinelli all remain out too.

Reiss Nelson should be available, but Willian will need to return a negative coronavirus test after travelling to Dubai during the international break.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Arsenal Premier League form: LWLLWL
Arsenal form (all competitions): WLWWWL

Prediction: Leeds United 1-1 Arsenal
