After five weekend matches got postponed, it was and it is still uncertain whether Arsenal and Leeds will still play this Saturday. With covid-19 infections in the EPL skyrocketing, we are definitely about to have quite a low morale this weekend. As for now, the Leeds Arsenal game is still on and spectators will be allowed at the Elland Road stadium. The Gunners are the best team in this match as Leeds’ form drastically falls. They recently had a traumatizing experience, losing 7-0 to Manchester City, which shows the mounting Leeds woes as their injury problems remain unresolved.
