Arsenal travel to Leeds in one of just five Premier League games going ahead this weekend.
With Covid causing chaos to the football schedule, the game at Elland Road is chance for Arsenal to put points on the board with any of their rivals not in action.
Leeds are five points clear of the relegation zone but will seek a quick turnaround after conceding seven at Manchester City in midweek, which followed a heartbreaking loss at Chelsea.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are on a high after downing Southampton and West Ham with relative ease.
Mikel Arteta has refused to allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a return to the squad after his disciplinary breach and should continue to put faith in his youngsters, when bidding for a third win in a row.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Leeds vs Arsenal is scheduled for an 5.30pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, December 18, 2021.
Elland Road will host the match.
