Leeds are looking to keep three consecutive Premier League clean sheets away from home for the first time in 26 years, last doing so under George Graham. Arsenal meanwhile are without a clean sheet in six matches. The Gunners though are aiming to win four successive games against Leeds in all competitions for the first time since 1938.

Can Arsenal stay on track for that all important Champions League spot?

Last Sunday, their heroes were the two centre-backs, with headers from Rob Holding and then Gabriel seeing the Gunners to a 2-1 victory at West Ham.

This means Mikel Arteta’s side have won three successive games, having also beaten other top four contenders Chelsea and Manchester United.

But, Arsenal fans certainly won’t be taking anything for granted, given that their side lost three in a row, to Palace, Brighton and Southampton, before this upturn.

All of this means the Gunners are currently fourth, two points clear of rivals, in more than one sense of the word, Tottenham.

With Spurs travelling to Anfield this weekend, Arsenal will be hoping to travel across the capital for Thursday’s North London derby in a healthy position.

Will the Gunners, at the very least, being heading to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium still in fourth place?

As for Leeds United, just when they thought they were over the hills and far away, they’ve been dragged back into the relegation dog fight.

Not so long ago, the Whites accumulated 11 points from 15 available, featuring wins over Norwich, Wolves and Watford.

This means they’re unbeaten in three top-flight away games, last enjoying a longer streak in 2001.

But, last weekend, everything went against Jesse Marsch’s side, including the fact they were beaten 4-0 by Manchester City at Elland Road.

More significantly however was the fact both Burnley and Everton won, meaning Leeds have dropped to 17th, two points above the drop zone.

After this, Leeds’ remaining fixtures are: Chelsea (H), Brighton (H) and then Brentford (A) on the final day.

With only 34 points on the board right now, the Whites may well need to win two of these four fixtures to guarantee safety.

Who will claim three invaluable points at the Emirates?

Ben White missed last Sunday’s trip to the London Stadium due to a tight hamstring, but should be fit enough to start this week.

Across the backline, Takehiro Tomiyasu started at right-back for the first time since the League Cup semi-final second leg against Liverpool on 20 January.

On the other side, the untrusted Nuno Tavares will continue to deputise in Kieran Tierney’s absence.

In midfield, without Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny will remain as Granit Xhaka’s partner.

Further forward, Gabriel Martinelli bagged a brace at Elland Road in December, with Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe also scoring.

Smite Rowe did so off the bench that day and could be a substitute again with Martin Ødegaard captaining the side.

Eddie Nketiah, who made 19 appearance on loan at Leeds in 2019, will start for the fifth Premier League game in a row.

He last scored at the Emirates in the league in front of fans against Everton 805 days ago, but did net against Leeds in the Carabao Cup in October.

Leeds continue to be crippled by injuries.

Last weekend, captain Liam Cooper pulled up in the warmup, so is a doubt, while Stuart Dallas suffered a horrific injury during the first half.

The Northern Ireland international hasn’t missed a league game since 4 July 2020, 761 days ago, but that streak will end here.

If both are out, Luke Ayling will move over to right-back with Diego Llorente, Pascal Struijk and Robin Koch the options to start in the middle.

In better news, Leeds’ most important player, Kalvin Phillips, will start a third consecutive game having missed four months due to a hamstring problem.

Goalkeeper Illan Meslier has conceded ten goals in his last three appearances against Arsenal.

In attack, Raphinha, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo were the front trio against Man City, but Dan James could return if Jesse Marsch is feeling bold.

Patrick Bamford remains sidelined.
