Buoyant Arsenal hopes to stay in the top four by beating an out-of-sorts Leeds United at Elland Road on Saturday (watch live, 12:30pm ET on NBC and online via Peacock Premium).
COVID-19 outbreaks have led to the postponement of several matches and Arsenal can create some top-four cushion — at least cosmetically — with a win at Elland Road.
Leeds sits five points clear of the bottom three but have played two more matches than 18th-place Burnley. They are one of just four PL teams to allow 30-plus goals this season.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leeds vs Arsenal.

Arsenal team news, injuries, lineup options
Will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang be back in the team after being stripped of his captaincy? Mikel Arteta’s left that door open, but Arsenal was very good without him and may not see the need for a change. Bernd Leno (groin/hip) and Sead Kolasinac (ankle) remain out.
