The Gunners are unbeaten in their last seven meetings against Leeds stretching all the way back to 2011.

Arteta got the better of Bielsa in the Carabao Cup earlier this season in a 2-0 victory at the Emirates, but the pair played out a stalemate in the league fixture at Elland Road last campaign as Nicolas Pepe saw red.

It has been difficult to define Arsenal under Arteta this season, with the good quickly offset by the bad in league action.

Their away form has been considerably less convincing than their results at home and the energy which Everton played with at Goodison Park in defeating the Gunners will offer Leeds encouragement.

However, the Whites' injury issues show no sign of abating and an Arsenal side with Europe in their sights - and buoyed by their midweek win - are capable of exploiting that.

Prediction: Leeds 1-2 Arsenal
