The Gunners are unbeaten in seven matches in all competitions, their longest run without defeat in over a year.
Arsenal vs Leeds latest odds
Having won four and lost none of their last five home games against this opposition, they are 3/5 (1.60) favourites with bet365 to maintain the feelgood factor with another victory here.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men have only won two of their 11 matches within normal time this season but can be backed at 9/2 (5.50) to secure a morale-boosting win in this one.
The guests needed penalties to make their way past Fulham in the last round, and you can get odds of 3/1 (4.0) on them remaining all square after 90 minutes once again.
Arsenal vs Leeds goalscorer
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the 10/3 (4.33) favourite to open the scoring after hitting the net in four of his last six club appearances, while Alexandre Lacazette is priced at 4/1 (5.0) following goals in each of the last two rounds.
Rodrigo is the visitors’ best shot at 10/1 (11.0) as Patrick Bamford remains injured, with youngster Joel Gelhardt also on offer at 10/1 (11.0) following his impressive cameo off the bench in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Wolves.
Arsenal vs Leeds preview
Having taken the top flight by storm last season, the Whites are struggling to maintain those standards in an injury-hit start to the current campaign.
With Bamford and Raphinha missing for a considerable number of games, they have only managed to score five goals in their last eight matches in all competitions.
This does not bode well for a game against Mikel Arteta’s improved side, who have scored 13 goals and conceded just four in their last seven games.
Arsenal vs Leeds predictions
Considering Arsenal have also won their two EFL Cup ties by a combined scoreline of 9-0 this season, odds of 6/4 (2.50) seem generous on them coming out on top by at least two clear goals against a Leeds team missing a number of key players.
