GOOD AFTERNOON FROM ELLAND ROAD
Welcome to our live coverage of Leeds United against Arsenal in the Premier League.
The international break is usually a drawn-out affair for fans of club football but, for Leeds supporters, the pause has been a most welcome one.
Having missed a month with a shoulder injury, these two weeks have allowed Kalvin Phillips to return to full fitness and he is expected to retake his place in the heart of Leeds’ midfield this afternoon.
The England international has been the man that Marcelo Bielsa has built success at Elland Road around, and it is no surprise that their form has stuttered in his absence – the Yorkshire side have slipped from third to 15th in that period.
Successive 4-1 defeats to Leicester and Crystal Palace have clouded the impressive start made on their return to the top-flight, but the Whites can take heart from the fact that they have never lost three-in-a-row since Bielsa took charge.
Arsenal also suffered a heavy loss last time out, once again emphasising that they are very much a work-in-progress under Mikel Arteta.
Their 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa ensured the Gunners remain consistent in their inconsistency, leaving them languishing in midtable with four wins and four losses from their eight games so far.
Thomas Partey, their big-money arrival from Atletico Madrid, was withdrawn at half-time in that clash with a thigh injury, and is likely to be unavailable for today’s clash.
Meanwhile, Sead Kolasinac and Mohamed Elneny are definitely out after testing positive for coronavirus while on international duty.
We’ll bring you confirmation of the two teams shortly with kick-off to come at 4.30pm.
