Leeds vs Arsenal Odds: Can Arsenal keep up excellent form?
Game time & date: 1400 BST, Sunday October 16
Location: Elland Road
Last result between the two: Arsenal 2-1 Leeds, Premier League, May 2022
It’s fair to say that Arsenal have shocked everybody this season. They have played nine, won eight and lost just once. They sit top of the table and look very capable of having a real go at winning the title this season.
Leeds have also looked much more comfortable this season in Jesse Marsh’s first full season with the club. They have made some astute signings. Luis Sinisterra, Brenden Aaronsen and Tyler Adams have all looked superb. They have picked up nine points so far, which isn’t fantastic but with the way they’ve been playing, you’d expect them to start picking up more points.
Leeds living the American dream
The American revolution has well and truly begun in Leeds. Jesse Marsch has brought in two American lads who have both had excellent starts to life in England. Aaronsen in particular has looked excellent, his dribbling ability and creative eye are fantastic. He makes things happen for Leeds.
Leeds tend to play better at home, Elland Road is a fortress. They have already swept aside one big London club there this season! This being Chelsea, who suffered a 3-0 defeat to the Yorkshire club. Arsenal will hope to blunt the Leed’s knives and come away with all three points.
Our Leeds Pick
Our Leeds pick is very basic. The Leeds vs Arsenal odds are very much in favour of Arsenal so we can afford to keep things simple. We have gone with Leeds to win with both teams to score. This comes in at 36/5 on 888Sport, which will return £80 from a tenner!
Arsenal flying high under Arteta
Arsenal have been simply sublime so far this season. They have looked like a proper team for the first time in years. Arteta’s system allows them to impose themselves on games, express their personality and most importantly, win. New recruits have been at the heart of the success and have lifted the rest of the squad.
William Saliba has returned from a two season loan spell and shored up Arsenal’s defence. Gabriel Jesus has brought a spark of energy that they’ve lacked up-front ever since Aubameyang and Lacazette started to age. Granit Xhaka has looked more like Patrick Vieira this season and despite previous issues has finally lived up to his price-tag. Honestly, we could mention them all.
Arsenal this season have been a breath of fresh air to the league. Their fans have been patient and it looks as if the dark days have come to an end. The feel good factor is back at the Emirates Stadium, smiles back on faces and there’s a sense of hope that they could do something big this season.
Our Arsenal Pick
Arsenal look geared up to cruise past Leeds this weekend, Arsenal will allow Leeds to attack them. Their defence is strong enough to allow them in and the speed on the break will cause Leeds massive issues. It seems that whatever Leeds throw at them, Arsenal will have a response.
The Leeds vs Arsenal odds favour Arsenal, to boost them we have gone with Arsenal win and Leeds not to score.
Leeds vs Arsenal Odds: Our Predictions
The balance of Arsenal will be too much for Leeds and they will keep them at bay while slowly picking them apart. We can see a 3-0 Arsenal victory. The 888Sport odds of this are 11/1.
