Can Marcelo Bielsa and Leeds bounce back in the wake of Tuesday’s 7-0 dissection at Manchester City? Only time will tell but their task against Arsenal is complicated by the injury induced absence of Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips, Pascal Struijk, Rodrigo, Liam Cooper, Jamie Shackleton and Daniel James. At least Bielsa can welcome back his German defender Robin Koch from a long-term pelvic problem. In marked contrast Mikel Arteta is able to continue without his former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on disciplinary grounds. The striker has not travelled to Yorkshire with his teammates.
