Sitting pretty at the top of the table heading into April, not even the most optimistic of Arsenal fans could have predicted this. As they take on a Leeds side in mid-table, the Gunners know that anything other than a win hands the initiative to Manchester City. With a few injuries building up, though, the Gunners will likely need to grit this one out if they want results.
Arsenal are coming into this game missing as many as six main players: Mohamed Elneny, Eddie Nketiah, William Saliba, and Takehiro Tomiyasu are all ruled out of this game. Meanwhile, it is likely that both Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney will have to sit this one out as well. This leaves Arsenal with a lighter squad than one would want, but the return of the likes of Gabriel Jesus bodes well for a team fighting for the title.

Leeds have a few injuries themselves, and will definitely be without the impressive Tyler Adams in midfield. Alongside him, Wilfried Gnoto and Maxi Wober are both likely to miss out on this game. This will leave Leeds with a pretty imbalanced team, and they will be relying upon the recent form of the likes of Jack Harrison to get them through a challenging match-up. With relegation battles against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest on the horizon, Leeds might hold their fire here in terms of squad risks.
Leeds have been OK recently, but Arsenal have been clutch in the big games at home and have won handsomely with regularity. Expect Arsenal to dominate both ball and match, and with Leeds missing so many players it is hard to see them winning out over the 90.
Score Prediction: 4-1
