Leeds United substitutes: Casilla, Struijk, Davis, Rodrigo, Costa, Roberts, Poveda.

Arsenal starting XI: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Ceballos; Pepe, Willock, Willian; Aubameyang.

Arsenal substitutes: Runarsson, Mustafi, Maitland-Niles, Saka, Nelson, Nketiah, Lacazette.

Leeds United go with Illan Meslier in goal, behind a familiar back four of ex-Arsenal man Luke Ayling, Robin Koch, Liam Cooper and Stuart Dallas.

Kalvin Phillips has been passed fit to start in holding midfield, with Mateusz Klich joining him in the engine room whilst Raphinha makes his first Premier League start as a more advanced midfielder.

Ezgjan Alioski starts on the right, with Jack Harrison on the left and Patrick Bamford leading the line, meaning Helder Costa is only on the bench.

Rodrigo is back on the bench too, alongside Costa, Kiko Casilla, Pascal Struijk, Leif Davis, Tyler Roberts and Ian Carlo Poveda.

Meanwhile, Bernd Leno starts in goal for Arsenal, but Mikel Arteta appears to have changed shape to more of a 4-2-3-1 this afternoon.

Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney are the full backs, with Rob Holding partnering Gabriel Magalhaes in the heart of defence.

Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos start in central midfield, with Joe Willock given a chance to shine as Arsenal’s number 10 today.

Nicolas Pepe and Willian line up out wide, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally starting up top, as Alexandre Lacazette is only on the bench.

Runar Runarsson, Shkodran Mustafi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Bukayo Saka, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah make up the rest of the bench today.
