Competition: EFL Cup

Market: Arsenal win

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Hoping to extend on their EFL Cup adventure on Tuesday night, Arsenal will welcome a struggling Leeds to the Emirates in midweek.

Starting with the hosts, while Arsenal might have opened the 2021/22 campaign in the midst of a very public struggle, the Gunners have managed to bounce back. Snatching a last-gasp point at home against Crystal Palace last week, Mikel Arteta’s side were last seen on Friday night claiming a deserved 3-1 romp against Aston Villa at the Emirates. Playing their way into the top-half of the Premier League table, the former champions are now enjoying a seven-match unbeaten run across all formats, a run that stems back to the end of August. Knowing that they have a real chance in north London to extend on their EFL Cup adventure in midweek, Arsenal should be boosted by their recent success in the capital. Including that 3-1 win against bitter rivals Spurs, Tuesday’s hosts are unbeaten in their last five contests at the Emirates, recording four wins.

As for the visitors, while Leeds might have managed to snatch a last-gasp point at home against Wolves on Saturday, it does not cover what has been a worrying start to the 2021/22 campaign. Despite gaining a host of plaudits from across the Premier League when making their return last season, Marcelo Bielsa’s side now appear to be at the heart of a relegation battle. Marking their return from the international break with a sluggish 1-0 defeat away at Southampton, the former Napoli boss has seen his side record just a single win from their opening nine top-flight attempts. Knowing that they should face a stern test in north London this week, Leeds should also be worried by their most recent meeting against Tuesday’s opponents. When the two sides last faced off back in February, the Whites were hit with a 4-2 drumming at Elland Road.
