Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Sunday’s football game at Emirates Stadium pits together Arsenal and Leeds United, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. Arsenal are eyeing a spot in the Champions League, while the Whites’ main goal is to secure the Premier League survival. The Gunners extended their winning run to three games at West Ham United, and they are seen as favourites to beat the Whites on home soil.
Talented attacker Eddie Nketiah should continue to lead the line for the hosts, while both Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney remain in the recovery room. Leeds United, on the other hand, failed to upset league leaders Man City at the weekend, with the team remaining in the danger zone. Since the visitors will go for a win as well, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. All Dallas, Forshaw, Roberts, and Summerville are sidelines with injuries, while Bamford is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Alexandre Lacazette):
Alexandre Lacazette is a hometown boy of Lyon, a powerful striker who went through the youth ranks of the French side to become one of the most important players for Les Gones. The 25-year-old forward was also a member of all France national team selections becoming a European champion at the age of 19 by scoring the winner in the final against Spain.
This goal gave him a reputation of a big game player, one he went on to uphold on various occasions at his club. Lacazette is a hard working forward an accomplished finisher of the ball able to score from different positions. The most prolific striker in his side and among the top ones in the Ligue 1, Alexandre Lacazette scored more than 20 league goals last two seasons on a trot.
Constantly linked with a move away from Lyon, Alexandre Lacazette refuses to speak about anything other than his football and is leaving all the talk to the football pitch.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United is one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites.
Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash.
The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
