Arsenal have confirmed their team news for the upcoming Premier League clash against Leeds United on Sunday afternoon.
Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney have both been ruled out with injuries, and won’t be back available for the Gunners until next week.
Mikel Arteta will have Bernd Leno and David Luiz available after both were sent off against Wolves for two crazy moments at Molineux.
Partey has had a stop-start season since moving from Atletico and had only just come back from a hip injury that had kept him out for six Premier League games.
The Gunners are much more solid with the Ghanaian in the heart of midfield, and this could lead to the unreliable Granit Xhaka starting again.
Tierney is a huge miss.
The Scottish international has been a revelation for the Londoners and has become a real fan favourite quickly with his no-nonsense approach.
Leeds are relentless in wide positions, and this could lead to Cedric being out-of-position against Raphinha – something he will already be licking his lips about.
The reverse fixture ended 0-0 at Elland Road earlier in the season.
It was one of our most frustrating matches of the campaign so far, with the Gunners clinging on for dear life after going down to 10-men when Nicolas Pepe was sent off.
The win over Crystal Palace on Monday sent the Whites above Arsenal and into the top half, and they could extend that gap to four points with a win at the Emirates Stadium.
