Leeds vs Arsenal: Arteta to be without five first-team players for EPL clash

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, will be without five key players for their trip to Leeds United on Sunday.

The Gunners are looking to bounce back from a 3-0 humiliation at home to Aston Villa before the international break.

But Arteta will have to get maximum points with Thomas Partey, Sead Kolasinac and Mohammed Elneny.

On Partey, an official statement explained that, “Thomas was replaced at half time during the match against Aston Villa and has sustained a strain to his left thigh.

“Continues to be assessed, will not be available for this weekend’s match and will continue his rehabilitation.”

Kolasinac and Elneny have both tested positive for COVID-19 and the club is “following protocols ahead of returning to training.”

Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli are only just returning from long-term injuries.
