LU Vs ARS Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Leeds United look to capitalise on Arsenal’s sorry state of attacking affairs.
After a dream start to the 2020-21 season of the Premier League, Leeds United have been familiarised with the harsh realities of the league right away. With just the one win in their last five encounters, the side sees itself stumble to land in 15th spot ahead of today’s fixture.
The last couple of defeats in particular have been especially damaging to the side. Shipping in four goals in each of those matches, the side has offered back little in a reply, a defensive setup which is fast failing to compliment the exuberance of the attacking contingent.
It’s a predicament which the club needs to overhaul at the earliest plausible if the side is to unlock its true potential, something the club will be well aware of. The two week hiatus couldn’t have come across at a more ideal time for the side, one the team is bound to have utilised judiciously to address its defensive aberrations.
LU Vs ARS Fantasy Probable Winner
Arsenal’s season has been a spitting image of Leeds United’s sortie. With three defeats in their last four matches, the side has been let down by its attack with the club managing to scrounge its way to a measly 9 goals.
This is the ideal side for Leeds United to fortify their defence against, a match we envision the home side just about walking away with a win in.

As ever, Bernd Leno has been a calming figure in defence for Arsenal. The goal-keeper has lived upto his reputation, flawlessly acting as the custodian of his side’s sticks to see him nail his place in our side.
Making his life easier has been new entrant Gabriel Magalhaes. The CB has taken no time in acclimatising himself with the league with him hitting the ground running instantly to clampdown down on anything sent down his way.
Kieran Tierney’s versatility sees him complete the duo from the side while the hosts will also be represented by the two names here. In fullbacks Luke Ayling and Sam Dallas, the side has two players who have assiduously given it their all to the club in the side’s attacking travails.
Mateusz Klich has not only pulled the strings for the side in midfield but he’s been an influential figure in the side’s attacks as well. He’s already accrued 2 goals and 3 assists, a figure which epitomises his telling impact on the club’s attacking plays.
Jack Harrison with the two assists will be his partner with the returning Kalvin Phillips bringing down the curtains on our set of picks for the contest. Arsenal will elsewhere see the imperious Bukayo Saka line up for us with him brimming with a versatile skill set.
Ever since his extension, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has gone off the boil. Arteta’s blatant refusal to deploy his down the middle has affected the striker’s game but despite that he’s managed to score twice.
Leeds United’s top scorer, striker Patrick Bamford was always going to be a must have pick for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Bamford’s seven goals will see him captain our side while Aubameyang is the vice-captain.
Leno, Ayling, Sam, Gabriel, Tierney, Klich, Saka, Philips, Harrison, Pierre, Bamford
