Alexandre Lacazette scoring for Arsenal

Arsenal vs Leeds: Arteta gunning for more cup success

Kick-off: 1945, 26/10/2021

Stadium: Emirates Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Arsenal have impressed in the EFL Cup this season and are strongly fancied to see off Leeds in the fourth round at Emirates Stadium.

With no European distractions this term, Mikel Arteta is well placed to prioritise success in both domestic knockout competitions.

We like 29/20 for the Gunners to lead at half-time and full-time for our first Arsenal vs Leeds prediction.

A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds

Arsenal hit West Brom for six at The Hawthorns in round two, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting a hat-trick in that match.

Nicolas Pepe, Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette were also on target versus the Baggies, highlighting how Arteta is prepared to use his big names in this tournament.

Lacazette, Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah were then on target in a 3-0 home victory over AFC Wimbledon.

The Gunners have been climbing up the Premier League table too, with Friday’s 3-1 win against Aston Villa making it six games unbeaten in the top flight.

“I think the way they played was at a high, high level,” beamed Arteta, who lifted the 2020 FA Cup and is obviously a disciple of Pep Guardiola, who has dominated this trophy with Manchester City.

Looking at the Arsenal vs Leeds odds, we think 8/5 for the Gunners to oblige by more than one clear goal is another good option.

A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds

Leeds kicked off their EFL Cup campaign with a 3-0 triumph over Crewe at Elland Road, when all of their goals came during a late charge.

Kalvin Phillips finally broke the deadlock on 79 minutes and Jack Harrison added a double in the closing stages to wrap up the victory.

The Whites then had to go to penalties to edge out Fulham following a goalless stalemate at Craven Cottage.

The home side had the better chances in normal play but keeper Illan Meslier helped to win it for the Premier League side in the shoot-out.

Marcelo Bielsa has more pressing matters on his mind after Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Wolves left Leeds just one place above the drop zone, though.

We’re going for a 2-0 home win at 27/4 to finish off our Arsenal vs Leeds betting tips on this televised tie.
