Team News
Arsenal will again be without the services of Granit Xhaka due to a long-term knee injury, while Kieran Tierney is unlikely to be involved due to an ankle complaint.

Head coach Arteta will make wholesale changes to the side that started against Villa in the Premier League on Friday, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Gabriel Martinelli, Bernd Leno, Mohamed Elneny, Cedric Soares, Nicolas Pepe and Rob Holding among those expected to come into the XI.

Nuno Tavares could retain his spot at left-back despite pressure from Sead Kolasinac, but there could otherwise be 10 alterations from Friday, with Folarin Balogun pushing to be involved at the tip of the attack.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Cedric, Holding, Mari, Nuno; Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Lokonga; Martinelli, Balogun, Pepe

Leeds United
As for Leeds, Robin Koch, Luke Ayling, Junior Firpo, Raphinha and Patrick Bamford will all be missing at the Emirates Stadium through injury.

Whites boss Bielsa will also make changes from his side's Premier League game on Saturday, with Tyler Roberts, Crysencio Summerville, Adam Forshaw and Charlie Cresswell all in line for starts.

A lack of options in a defensive area could see Jamie Shackleton and Stuart Dallas continue in the full-back areas, though, while Bielsa is likely to resist the temptation to bring Kalvin Phillips into the side.
Leeds United possible starting lineup:
Meslier; Shackleton, Cresswell, Cooper, Dallas; Summerville, Klich, Forshaw, Rodrigo, James; Roberts

Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Leeds United
