Everything you need to know to follow Arsenal’s key Premier League clash with a Leeds United side desparate to beat the drop.

Arsenal are preparing for another key battle in their bid to land a top four finish.

It has been a big week for the Gunners, who celebrated a key win over West Ham United by handing a new contract to Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard has managed to turn things around at the Emirates Stadium this season and will be kept around until 2025 as a result.

Arsenal will be looking to celebrate their manager’s new contract with a win this weekend to remain in pole position in the top four race, especially with Tottenham facing Liverpool.

But Leeds have business of their own to take care of, facing a tough battle to avoid the drop amid a difficult fixture list.

That makes this one a potential banana skin for the Gunners, and ahead of the game, we have rounded up all the details you need to tune in.

Recent meetings

Arsenal have a superb record against Leeds, winning nine of the last 11 meetings and losing none.

Leeds haven’t beaten Arsenal since 2003 when they managed a 3-2 Premier League.

Though, it is worth noting that the teams only met four times between 2004 and 2020, and all of those games were in the FA Cup, with Leeds playing in a lower division.

The overall record between the two clubs is still pretty close, however.

Arsenal have won 50 games, while Leeds have won 41 to date and there have been 33 draws.

Both sides need a win here for very different reasons.
