Arsenal face a tricky test as they travel to face Leeds in the Premier League looking to strengthen their top four credentials.
The Gunners leapfrogged West Ham in midweek with a 2-0 victory over the Hammers, courtesy of goals from Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe.
The result made it back-to-back wins for Mikel Arteta’s side after their disappointing defeat away to Everton earlier this month, with the Arsenal faithful now dreaming of a return to the Champions League positions.
Here’s how Arsenal could line up.
Aaron Ramsdale (GK) – You could make a legitimate case for the Arsenal stopper being the best goalkeeper in the league on current form.
Takehiro Tomiyasu (RB) – Signed predominantly for his defensive qualities, but his attacking influence is growing.
Ben White (CB) – Excellent range of passing out of defence, which the Gunners have profited from several times this season.
Gabriel (CB) – The Brazilian has blossomed into one of the best defenders in the league this campaign.
Kieran Tierney (LB) – Briefly lost his place in the side as Nuno Tavares enjoyed a purple patch, but he’s been firmly restored to the team.
Thomas Partey (CM) – His performance at Goodison Park a few weeks ago brought criticism, but he seems to have regained his composure.
Albert Sambi-Lokonga (CM) – The Belgian could replace Granit Xhaka as Arteta looks to rotate amid a busy festive schedule.
Martin Odegaard (AM) – Beginning to add goals his game after his summer arrival from Real Madrid.
Bukayo Saka (RW) – His speed and trickery down the right hand side makes him such an asset for Arsenal.
Alexandre Lacazette (ST) – Far from the quickest player in the Gunners’ squad, but his link-up play rarely lets his side down.
Gabriel Martinelli (LW) – The Brazilian’s pace should unsettle a Leeds team who like to go man-for-man.
