Leeds predicted lineup vs Arsenal - Premier League

06 May 2022 04:25

Leeds make the trip to London to face Arsenal in the Premier League as Jesse Marsch's side look to ease their relegation concerns.

Victories for Burnley and Everton, coupled with Leeds' defeat to Man City, pulled the Yorkshiremen closer to the drop as the crunch period of the season comes into focus.

Marsch's men have been leapfrogged by Burnley and hover just two points above the relegation zone with a clash against Chelsea to follow in midweek.

Here's how Leeds could line up for their trip to north London.

Illan Meslier (GK) - His confidence on the ball is remarkable and he has proven a terrific shot-stopper over the years.

Luke Ayling (RB) - Endured a torrid time with injuries this term, but has started to string a run of starts together.

Pascal Struijk (CB) - Comfortable operating in both midfield and defence given his impressive physical qualities.

Diego Llorente (CB) - Dropped to the bench for last weekend's defeat to City but should return this weekend.

Junior Firpo (LB) - Hasn't looked convincing defensively since arriving from La Liga and will be tested against the dangerous Bukayo Saka.

Kalvin Phillips (DM) - His ability to put his foot on the ball will be key against an Arsenal side who like to dominate possession.

Mateusz Klich (DM) - Hooked at the interval in the goalless draw with Crystal Palace recently, but he was back in the side to face Man City.

Raphinha (RM) - Leeds' talisman this term, netting a goal every three games in the Premier League this season.

Rodrigo (AM) - Looks to have found his feet in the Premier League after a sluggish start.

Jack Harrison (LM) - Has scored three times in his last five games as Leeds continue their push for survival.

Dan James (ST) - Offers real pace in attack, but he's failed to find the net since February.
