Leeds v Arsenal Betting Tips & Match Preview - Sunday 16th October

Can Arsenal assert their title credentials further?


Arsenal will be eager to prove they are the real deal as far as the title race is concerned when they travel to Elland Road to lock horns with Leeds on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners have been in imperious form, and their 3-2 victory over Liverpool last weekend was underlined with a blend of intensity and finesse, and they overran their illustrious opponents.

Meanwhile, Leeds have been in a bit of a tailspin. A rousing 3-0 win over Chelsea back in August has been their highlight, and they have lost three of their past five Premier League outings.

For Mikel Arteta, there aren’t too many injury concerns to contend with. The game seems to have come too soon for Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf), but after being given a stay-at-home order following a head injury sustained against Liverpool, Gabriel Jesus could be given the green light to start.

Clashes between Leeds and Arsenal are usually full-bloodied affairs, and the latest instalment is unlikely to be any different.

To inspire you, we have handpicked a couple of tips for you to add to your betting slips.

Arsenal to send out another message of intent

Last term, Arsenal found themselves going through the motions. But Arteta has instilled a winning mentality, and there is a palpable belief that perhaps this could be their year.

Although the fixture list seemed eminently kind to the Gunners at the start of the season, they displayed their credentials by swatting aside north London rivals Tottenham and then taking care of Liverpool.

Indeed, the Gunners have been in free-scoring mode, netting three goals or more in three successive games.

Leeds, meanwhile, may have taken some encouragement from their defeat to Crystal Palace as they were aggressive early on, but they couldn’t maintain the fast tempo, and they faded.

Given the form that Arsenal have been in, and the way they swagger around the pitch, it seems like there will only be one winner on paper.

Last season, Arsenal produced a scintillating display in this fixture as they ran out 4-1 victors. I expect them to pick up another three points, and the Correct Score section looks appealing. Arsenal could clinch a 3-1 win which is available at a rather juicy price of 9/1 with Paddy Power.

Bukayo Saka to draw first blood

Invariably, Bukayo Saka is instrumental to the Gunners’ cause, and he has chipped in with four assists this term.

But he has recently found his goalscoring boots, netting three times in his past two outings in all competitions.

Saka was on target during the Gunners’ successful trip to Yorkshire last term, and I fancy him to hit the target this weekend.

If you have a penchant for wagering on the Goalscoring Markets, Saka is priced at a tasty 7/1 with Unibet to break the deadlock.
