Mikel Arteta’s side have an eight-point lead over Manchester City and continue to impress. It seems that every time the Gunners take a setback, they have enough mental strength to recover almost immediately.
The dominant way in which Arsenal disposed of Fulham just days after an exhausting penalty defeat to Sporting in the Europa League said so much about Arteta’s side. Towards the business end of the campaign, the title seems to be losing.
While on paper the visit from a side battling relegation looks fairly auspicious, Leeds managed a morale-boosting victory over Wolves before the break in domestic football.
Arsenal squeezed past the Yorkshire giants in October thanks to a goal from Bukayo Saka, so Saturday’s opposition will certainly not be taken lightly.
