Pundits split in Arsenal vs Leeds United Premier League predictions

Arsenal will be looking to earn a much-needed victory against Leeds United on Saturday.

The Gunners have struggled so far this season in the Premier League, having lost four of their opening eight matches, and were humbled at home by Aston Villa before the international break.

Mikel Arteta’s side have also failed to score from open play in any of their last four outings, with their only goal coming from the penalty spot against Manchester United earlier this month.

Meanwhile, Leeds are enduring a dip in form with Marcelo Bielsa’s men falling to successive 4-1 defeats in their previous two matches.

However, the Yorkshire outfit are known for their aggressive, pressing style of play and will not be an easy opponent for Arsenal, who will have to be at their very best to get a result.

Pundits were split over the potential outcome of Sunday’s match, with both Arsenal and Leeds having been tipped to take all three points.

“There’s surely got to be a reaction from Arsenal, after such a poor performance in their defeat by Aston Villa.

“But I am going to go with Leeds here. They had a heavy defeat of their own, against Crystal Palace, but that game might have been a very different story if Patrick Bamford’s equaliser had not been ruled out by a ridiculous offside decision.

“I really do think this game is especially hard to call, but that is Leeds at the moment – they will go for it, but give the opposition chances.

“With the Gunners, the question is more about whether they turn up as a team – a case of ‘same old Arsenal’ if you like. They had just started to improve and had looked as if they were about to kick on under Mikel Arteta but instead they have been very inconsistent.”

Prediction: 2-1

Bamford will provide the biggest attacking threat…
