Is Leeds United vs Arsenal on TV? Kick-off time, highlights, and stream details for Premier League clash
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Gunners have been in excellent form this season, losing just once in all competitions, and currently sit top of the Premier League with 24 points from their first nine matches. By contrast, the Whites lie 14th in the table, having taken just nine points from their first eight outings.
In particular, Arsenal new boy Gabriel Jesus has shone since arriving at the Emirates from Manchester City over the summer, registering five goals and four assists in the top flight already. The Brazilian was rested for his side’s Europa League trip to play Bodo/Glimt in Norway on Thursday evening. Bodo play on a plastic pitch, and it is understood that no risks were taken over his availability for Sunday’s showdown at Elland Road.
For their part, the Whites welcome Luis Sinisterra back to their matchday squad for the fixture. The Colombian missed out on last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace through suspension, but has impressed in the early stages of the campaign, with three goals and an assist in his first seven appearances across all competitions.
Since returning to the top flight in 2020, Leeds have taken just one point from Arsenal. That draw came in November of that year, with the two sides playing out a 0-0 stalemate at Elland Road. Since then, however, the Whites have gone on to lose four consecutive fixtures against the Gunners - including three matches last season. United were beaten 2-0 in the Carabao Cup 12 months ago, before suffering back-to-back defeats in the Premier League.
But with such a disparity between the two sides in terms of the current table and their recent head-to-head record, how will Leeds fare when they meet this weekend - and how can supporters follow the action live?
