Arsenal VS Leeds Live Football Score Match 16 Oct 2022
How will the Premier League leaders fair against the high=pressing style of Leeds this weekend? Well, Arsenal have dealt with pretty much everything that has been thrown at them this season and if they watched Leeds away at Crystal Palace last time out they will know that March’s men can’t keep up that physically demanding style of play for the entire 90-minutes.This is easily the best version of Arsenal we have seen since Arsenal Wenger was leading the club to glory, they are still below that standard but do look like they are in with a chance of securing a trophy this season. The Gunners have won five of their last six meetings with Leeds United and have won each of their last six matches in all competitions heading into this weekend’s clash, while Leeds have lost three of their last five league games.Martinelli might not be the top scorer for Arsenal this season but the Brazilian is only one league goal behind his fellow countryman Jesus following a bright start to the campaign. Martinelli is on course to have his best goalscoring season of his professional career as he already has 4-goals in the Premier League and his best in the red and white of Arsenal is six. The Brazilian is a real threat on the road as his blistering pace allows for some lighting fast counter-attacks and we’re backing Martinelli to score on Sunday.Leeds started their game at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace really well, pressing the hosts’ defence into continuous mistakes and eventually capitalising in the 10th-minute through Struijk. However, the Leeds players couldn’t keep pressing as they were and when they tired, Crystal Palace equalised with virtually their first attack of the game in the 24th-minute. From that point on, Crystal Palace controlled the game and eventually scored a winning goal through Eze 14-minutes from time.
Leeds Predicted lineup – Meslier, Cooper, Koch, Kristensen, Struijk, Roca, Adams, Harrison, Aaronson, Rodrigo & Bamford
Arsenal played host to Liverpool in their last league game in what was always going to be a huge test for the Arsenal players. The game was very evenly matched throughout and produce plenty of goalmouth action. Arsenal took the lad through Martinelli inside the opening minute but Nunez equalised for Liverpool shortly after the half-hour mark. Saka managed to restore Arsenal’s one-goal advantage in first-half stoppage-time but early in the second forty-five, Firmino made it 2-2. Arsenal would take the lad again via a Saka penalty 14-minutes from time and on this occasion, the Gunners’ defence held firm to see out their victory.
Arsenal Predicted lineup – Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Gabriel, White, Saliba, Xhaka, Partey, Ødegaard, Saka, Jesus & Martinelli

As for Leeds, players such as Archie Gray, Stuart Dallas, Leo Fuhr Hjelde and Adam Forshaw are unavailable with respective injuries.Arsenal travel to Leeds United, looking to maintain their position atop the Premier League table. The Gunners have won 11 of 12 matches in all competitions this season, with the only slip coming away to Manchester United last month. It’s fortunate that Arsenal had the midweek Europa League match against Bodø/Glimt to refocus because coming off the massive win against Liverpool, the Gunners might have overlooked their next opponents. Mikel Arteta should have his bunch ready to go against what could be a tricky Leeds side.
Leeds United are winless in their last five Premier League matches (0-2-3) and have slipped to 15th in the table. But don’t let their record fool you. They’re a frisky bunch. They beat a Thomas Tuchel-coached Chelsea side 3-0 earlier this season. Jesse Marsch has his side playing a high-energy, pugnacious style that can turn games into emotional, scrappy contests that put opposing teams off their game.The only question mark in the Arsenal lineup is whether Kieran Tierney or Takehiro Tomiyasu will get the start at left back. That Tierney started and played most of the game against Bodø suggests that Tomiyasu will get the nod, but the conventional wisdom was the Tomiyasu was preferred against Liverpool because of his ability to shut down opposing attackers. I’ll put it this way. Brenden Aaronson is a fine player. As an American, I like him quite a lot. He is not Mohamed Salah. So without the pressing need for Tomiyasu’s defensive capabilities, does Mikel Arteta go with the more attacking-capable Tierney?
As far as I know, Arsenal do not have any new injury concerns. Mikel Arteta hinted that Alex Zinchenko could miss a few more weeks with whatever injury has been keeping him out since he put in 74 minutes against Tottenham. Emile Smith Rowe is out until after the World Cup, and we probably won’t see him until at least midway through January. Mohamed Elneny will also be out a while, back in September Arteta said that he expected the midfielder to be out for a few months.
