Confirmed line-ups: Arsenal vs Leeds – Cedric & Holding start

By on May 8, 2022


Arsenal can cement their place in the top four with a win over Leeds United at the Emirates this afternoon.

Mikel Arteta has kept faith with Rob Holding at the back as he starts alongside Gabriel once again with Ben White still nursing a thigh injury. Cedric Soares is given a recall in the only change from the side that beat West Ham last time out.

Takehiro Tomiyasu keeps his place after recovering from cramp that forced him off against the Hammers. Nuno Tavares drops out so it will be interesting to see who starts at left-back today.

Mohamed Elneny keeps his place in the Arsenal midfield and is once again joined by Granit Xhaka in the middle of the park. Albert Sambi Lokonga has to settle for a place on the bench yet again this afternoon.

Martin Odegaard captains the side again today as he lines-up in the attacking midfield role with Bukayo Saka fit to start on the wing despite limping off during the win over West Ham last weekend.

Eddie Nketiah leads the line up front for Arsenal again today after his impressive all-round display at the London Stadium last week. Alexandre Lacazette has to make-do with a place among the substitutes.

Gabriel Martinelli keeps his place on the left side of attack so Emile Smith Rowe has to settle for a place on the bench alongside Nicolas Pepe.

These are the line-ups for the game:


Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel, Cedric, Elneny, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Nketiah

Subs: Leno, Lacazette, Smith Rowe, Pepe, Tavares, Lokonga, Oulad M’hand, Swanson, Patino.
