Arsenal could go ahead from this FK situation. Leeds hold their breath.
85'
Cooper booked for fouling Aubameyang on the wing. He protests but it was a clear booking.
83'
Meslier saves the day for Leeds in a one on one with Saka after Bellerin creates a play from thin air. Leeds can breathe for now.
82'
Poveda comes on as a sub and then shoots just a minute later. Way too easy for Leno who has had a good game tonight.
81'

Xhaka puts the FK well over the crossbar.
74'
Aubameyang has a FK in a great position.

Leeds attack once again can not find the net! They could not have asked for many more chances tonight. If they walk away with anything other than a win they will be severely disappointed.

Leeds in control of the match. Arsenal haven't seen much of the ball even before the red card.
55'
The 'Yorkshire Pirlo' may yet play on and Saka will come on for Arsenal.
54'
Kalvin-Phillips freshly back goes down in pain. Bad news for Leeds...

52'
If Arsenal were struggling before, let's see how they do with 10 men...
51'
What a silly decision from Pepe who headbutted Alioski. Alioski exaggerated the impact no doubt but it was a clear red card.
50'
Red card for violent conduct of Pepe!
48'
ARS FK from out wide is delivered but doesn't make it past the first white shirt.
46'
Miscommunication between Leeds means a promising long ball will be left to go out for an Arsenal GK.

45'
HT: Leeds end the half as they have played it, with another failed attack that seemed full of promise. Arteta will not have much positive to say in the dressing room...

Leeds have a FK near the corner flag, could this be what they need to pull ahead before the break?
40'
Fantastic passing from Leeds builds up to an attack that Klich should have put on target. Leeds have momentum.
38'
Leeds 2 shots on target, Arsenal 0. Leeds' style leaves them wide open to counterattacks so anything could change at the drop of a hat.
36'
Leeds still on the attack! Cross from Kalvin-Phillips just misses Bamford's head who would have surely put that one away.
35'
Leeds have had the better of the possession and chances so far but are lacking precision in their passing and shooting that has really hurt their chances so far.
33'
Arsenal have found a second wind and will not let Leeds breathe on the ball. Despite that Leeds find the space to shoot from the edge of the area and Dallas should have really done better than that!
30'
Bamford strikes a volley in the area but Leno makes a great save! What a combination and shot but an even better save.
30'
Leeds have created space around the area and have men up but Arsenal are presenting a solid wall around the area!
29'
Great combinations from Leeds around the area have won them a corner.
26'
Raphinha strikes from far out and almost finds the net! He had a hand in creating the chance and might have just redeemed some of his failed passes earlier...
25'
Great anticipation from Meslier who came well out to clear the Arsenal attack, Willian was alone 1 on 1 with him!

19'

8'
Arsenal have struggled in the middle of the field so far, finding it difficult to get the ball up to the strikers but when they do they look dangerous!

1'
Let's go at Elland Road!
Prev.
Just moments from kick-off, check out these great stats ahead of the game!
Prev.
Bielsa spoke before the game and said that Leeds plan to keep Arsenal under pressure in their own half to counter their attacking talent. A risky strategy, will it pay off?
Prev.
It's bound to be an entertaining match with Leeds' attacking style that Bielsa has become a great proponent of. Will Arsenal hold back or take the fight to Leeds?
Prev.
Nothing too surprising to see from today's lineups, Lacazette starts on the bench and could come on as a super-sub to break any deadlocks later in the match.
Prev.
ARSENAL XI: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Willock, Ceballos; Willian, Pepe, Aubameyang.
Prev.
LEEDS XI: Meslier; Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Dallas; Phillips; Alioski, Raphinha, Klich, Harrison; Bamford
