Leeds United vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Elland Road.
The Peacocks had made a great start to their campaign, but they have failed to live up to that standard lately. They are slowly coming to terms to the sheer level of intensity that the Premier League could bring to the table.
As of now, they are placed 15th in the table, and worryingly no other team has conceded more goals than them.
The style of football employed by Marcelo Bielsa already gives importance to offense (sacrificing defense a bit in the process) and it seems as if EPL clubs have figured out how to take advantage of this.
This Sunday, they will have a monumental task in front of them, considering the Gunners are about to make a visit.
Mikel Arteta’s men have had the misfortune to take on some of the very best teams in the league in close succession lately, and that has adversely affected their form a bit. They are in desperate need for a huge win, and that’s where the struggling Peacocks come in.
The Gunners are one of the most experienced and best teams in the EPL, and have been so for the past several years. On the other hand, their counterparts have been promoted to the top flight just at the end of last season.
Moreover, Arteta’s men also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years. As such, count on an Arsenal win this Sunday at the Elland Road.
Leeds United vs Arsenal Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Gunners are on a three-game winning run.

- They had scored three or more goals in four of the preceding seven clashes.
- At this venue, the guests are on a four-fixture winning run.
Leeds United vs Arsenal Prediction
Bielsa’s men lost 4-1 on the road the last match-day, against Crystal Palace. In the meantime, Arteta’s men lost 0-3 at home against Aston Villa.
Going on, the Peacocks are on a two-fixture losing run, and they had conceded eight goals from these two matches. They were also winless in four of their former five games, and they have also conceded the most number of goals in the league.
On the other hand, their opposite number had won three of their previous four overall match-ups, and won 14 of their past 18 games as well. On the road, they had also won six of their preceding eight fixtures, and most importantly, they are also on a three-game winning run in h2h meetings.
In fact, the only invincibles in the modern EPL also have a terrific h2h record over the past two decades.
Taking into account these observations, expect Arsenal to dominate proceedings this Sunday at the Elland Road.
