Mikel Arteta has made one change for the Leeds United clash, with Cedric Soares coming in at left-back in place of Nuno Tavares.

Mikel Arteta has decided to make just one change to his lineup against Leeds United as Cedric Soares comes in for Nuno Tavares at left-back. The rest of the side remains the same, and the solitary change may be to shore up the backline.

Ben White does not feature in the squad for the second game running, as he may not have achieved full fitness yet. Takehiro Tomiyasu makes starts a second consecutive at right-back, while Rob Holding and Gabriel Magalhaes pair up at the heart of the Arsenal defence, with Aaron Ramsdale firmly settled between the sticks.

Mohamed Elneny continues in central midfield, and Granit Xhaka partners the Egyptian in a double-pivot. Martin Odegaard captains the side and plays an advanced attacking role ahead of the two midfielders.

Bukayo Saka is the primary choice to operate on the right side of the Arsenal attack, with Gabriel Martinelli preferred once again to Emile Smith Rowe on the left. Eddie Nketiah continues to lead the line at the expense of Alexandre Lacazette, who is an option from the bench if needed.

Arsenal Starting Lineup: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel, Cedric, Elneny, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Nketiah
