Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that deposed captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang won’t be available for the game against Leeds tomorrow.
The 32-year-old was absent for the 2-0 win over West Ham and there is no indication as to when the striker will return to the squad.
In terms of other team news, Gabriel Martinelli is a minor doubt due to a knock, while Bernd Leno (groin) and Sead Kolasinac (ankle) are both still sidelined.
Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Leeds:
Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Smith Rowe, Xhaka, Saka, Lacazette, Martinelli
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has no less than seven players out injured. Captain Liam Cooper, Patrick Bamford and Kalvin Phillips all have hamstring injuries, while Jamie Shackleton (Achilles), Daniel James (muscular), Rodrigo (heel) and Pascal Struijk (foot) are also ruled out. Junior Firpo is suspended after picking up five yellow cards.
Leeds’ Predicted XI:
Meslier, Ayling, Koch, Llorente, Dallas, Klich, Forshaw, Raphinha, Roberts, Harrison, Gelhardt
