Arsenal vs. Leeds live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League clash
Arsenal take on Leeds United today at the Emirates Stadium, in a match that could have great consequences at both ends of the Premier League table in the race for Europe and to avoid the drop.
Mikel Arteta’s Gunners are looking to cement their place in the UEFA Champions League slots and achieve a fourth win on the bounce, whilst could move to within a point of Chelsea in third place if they can indeed grab all three points.
There is also room to capitalize on Tottenham’s failure to come away from Anfield with a win yesterday, potentially meaning Arsenal can move four points clear of the Lilywhites with a victory. On the other hand, visitors Leeds find themselves in a perilous position, hovering just above the relegation zone in 17th place.
Nevertheless, fellow basement battlers, Everton has a game in hand on Jesse Marsch’s men, signifying that they need a result to avoid the looming threat of uncertainty surrounding their Premier League status. Leeds come into this one in good form, however, as they have lost just one of their last six domestic encounters.
With both sides having plenty at stake, this match promises to be excellent viewing and could produce plenty of goals throughout.
