Arsenal fans think they have spotted a Willian team selection hint vs Leeds United

Arsenal fans are speculating about who will start in attack against Leeds United.

The Gunners return to Premier League action on Sunday evening with a trip to Elland Road as they look to bounce back from the 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa before the international break.

However, manager Mikel Arteta won’t have a fully fit Arsenal squad to choose from.

Long-term absentees Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli are back in training, but are unavailable for selection, as is Thomas Partey who hasn’t recovered from the thigh injury he picked up against Villa.
