Coming fresh off a massive win against Aston Villa in the Premier League, Mikel Arteta’s men look all set to face Leeds United in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. The Gunners are now on a six-match unbeaten streak in all competitions and have loads of confidence going into this game. A win against Leeds will bring Arsenal closer to their hopes of lifting the Carabao Cup. In this article, we look at the probable starting XI for Arsenal against Leeds United.
Goalkeeper – Bernd Leno
Since the arrival of Aaron Ramsdale this summer, Bernd Leno has made just 3 appearances in the league for the Gunners and conceded 9 times in the process. To say the least, it has not been the best season for the German but he will be looking to get his place back in the squad as he makes way into Arteta’s side which will face Leeds.
Defenders – Nuno Tavares, Holding, Mari, Cedric
Putting on a fantastic display against Villa on Monday, Nuno Tavares has already established himself as a fan favourite. Tierney made way for Tavares as the Scottish left-back suffered an injury and was ruled out of the game. Nuno will be looking to have another great game as we look at the probable starting XI for Arsenal against Leeds United.
The duo of Rob Holding and Pablo Mari has been sidelined since the arrival of the marquee signing, Ben White. Both of them last appeared for the Gunners versus Manchester City where they had a horrific game. Although, a good game against Leeds United can change their fortunes.
Like other defenders at Arsenal, Cedric has been neglected as well due to the new incoming at the club. Tomiyasu has well and truly established himself as the primary right-back at the club, but he will be rested against Leeds and Cedric will have a chance to prove himself as well.
