With three consecutive defeats, the Arsenal team made their position much more difficult when it comes to the fight for placement in the Champions League, but they managed to “get out” of the results crisis, and in the next three matches they achieved all three victories. Ahead of this match, Arsenal is in fourth place on the table with an advantage of two points over the fifth-placed Tottenham, so the eventual triumph of Arteta’s team would make a big step towards achieving the goal, especially considering that Tottenham’s team will in this round to play a very difficult match against Liverpool.
The Arsenal team is playing much better at home this season, and with only fifteen goals conceded in seventeen matches played, it is in the third place in the list of the best defensive teams in the league, when it comes to matches played “at home”. Given the ambitions and current form, we believe that Arsenal should come to a very important victory without any major problems, especially since the next opponent is the team with the worst defensive performance in the championship.

Leeds is currently in a very difficult situation when it comes to the fight for survival, as they have only two points more than the Everton team that is in the relegation zone (Everton played one game less), and every remaining match for them has a very of great importance. Leeds missed a really good opportunity in the matches against Southampton and Crystal Palace to get very valuable points in the fight for survival, so they will be under a lot of pressure by the end of the season, especially considering that the Everton and Burnley managed to improve their form. The biggest problem for the Leeds team this season is the defence, and Leeds with seventy-two goals conceded at the moment have the worst defensive performance in the league, and if they continue in that rhythm, it is very difficult to expect them to keep their place in the top rank of English football.
In the last round, they easily conceded four goals at home in the match against Manchester City, and if they do not play much more aggressively tomorrow in defense, we are sure that the home team’s attackers will be able to use Leeds’ defensive weaknesses in the right way.

Arsenal vs. Leeds Prediction
Four rounds before the end of the championship, Arsenal is on a “good path” to return to the Champions League after a rather long break, but it will need at least six more points, with one failure of the Tottenham team. The duel against one of the weakest teams in the league is really a great opportunity for Arsenal to reach very important points, and if Arsenal is not able to beat Leeds at home, the real question is whether it deserves a place in the Champions League. Leeds is already expecting a match in the next round against Chelsea, which is also fighting for the Champions League, so a very big challenge in battle for survival is in front of team from the “Elland Road” stadium. Considering the difference in quality and the importance of the match, any outcome other than a sure victory for the home team would be a really big surprise.
