The latest on Ben White ahead of Arsenal's meeting with Leeds

Mikel Arteta spoke to the media on Friday afternoon ahead of Arsenal’s next outing.

Arsenal are set to face off with Leeds United at the Emirates in Sunday’s early Premier League kick-off.

Ahead of the clash, Arteta discussed a number of topics in his pre-match presser, including team news. And it proved a largely positive update from the Spaniard, who stated that Ben White is in contention to feature, whilst everyone else is 'okay': "Ben White is still in contention. He needs to train tomorrow. For the rest no news. Everyone should be okay."

Arteta was also asked what he wants Arsenal to improve this weekend when compared to their display versus West Ham, to which he replied: "Hopefully we can play better with he ball than what we did. It’s true that we did a lot of good things in that game to earn the right to win it. Every game has different demands."

Arsenal vs Leeds United

Arsenal’s meeting with Leeds United is a huge one when it comes to the race for Champions League football..

The Gunners head into the weekend’s action having won three on the bounce to once again move back into the top-four.

The race for 4th is still very tight, however, with Tottenham just two points behind. And, with a mammoth north London derby still to come next week, it is vital that Arsenal do not drop any points beforehand.

But, whilst Leeds were dispatched with ease by Manchester City last weekend, they are expected to prove a much tougher test for Arsenal, with the Peacocks having looked a much-improved outfit since Jesse Marsch took the reins at Elland Road.
