Leeds United v Arsenal injury news as six ruled out and two doubts

A look at the latest injury news surrounding Arsenal and Leeds United ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash.

Arsenal are back in Premier League action on Sunday when they face Leeds United at Elland Road.

The Gunners are on cloud nine currently, enjoying a superb run of form to stay top of the Premier League table.

Mikel Arteta’s men are a point ahead of Manchester City, who are chasing intensely.

Arsenal passed another major test last weekend when they defeated a Liverpool side desperate to get back into the title race.

This weekend, the Gunners head to Yorkshure to take on a Leeds side who have enjoyed a solid start to the season.

And ahead of the clash, Arsenal will face Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League, and crucially on an artificial pitch, which raises concern of injury.

Though, not for Gabriel Jesus, who has been left behind due to his heavy involvement of late.

“We felt that with everything he’s been through in the last few weeks that it would be better for him to stay at home,” Arteta said in his pre-match press conference.

Ahead of the clash with Leeds, Arsenal’s injury situation could evolve, with the Bodo clash still to play, not to mention Arteta has already admitted to some injuries that he hasn’t gone into detail about.

But we know Oleksandr Zinchenko will likely miss out this weekend as he continues to battle a muscular injury.

Meanwhile, Emile Smith Rowe and Mohamed Elneny are both sidelined long term.

As for Leeds, Junior Firpo should be fit for this one, with Jesse Marsch detailing: “Junior Firpo just picked up a little something after the last game so we wanted to give him the week and he’ll be ready by next week.”

Marsch will, however, be without as many as four players.

Archie Gray is out with a toe injury, while Adam Forshaw remains sidelined with an ankle problem.

Leo Hjelde is battling appendicitis, and Stuart Dallas is out long-term with a femur injury.
