After suffering two goals in a row, the Leeds del Loco Bielsa receives the irregular Arsenal with the aim of winning so as not to sink into the table.
Leeds United and Arsenal meet today Sunday, November 22, in the football match corresponding to Date 9 of the England Premier League, at Elland Road Stadium.
After almost two weeks without football for the FIFA Date, those led by Marcelo Bielsa seek to recover at home against a tough rival.
With the arbitration of Anthony Taylor, the meeting between Leeds and Arsenal will be played from 1:30 p.m. (Argentine time) and can be seen live on ESPN 2 (Channel 103 of Cablevisión and 623 of DirecTV) and online by streaming in ESPN Play.
After a promising start with a high level of football, the Leeds United had a slump and comes to this match after two games in which they were thrashed (1-4 vs Leicester y 1-4 vs Crystal Palace).
With only 10 units, the team led technically and tactically by Argentine Marcelo Bielsa occupies the 15th position of the Premier League and needs to start winning to regain confidence and, although there is a long way to go, not to think about relegation.
And that urgency also encompasses the fact that in the next two days, Leeds will have to play as a visitor against two difficult opponents such as Everton, at Goodison Park, and Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge.
For its part, Arsenal’s path in these eight Premier League dates was almost as irregular as that of their rival on duty: won four and lost the other four games.
However, Mikel Arteta is aware that, although he is obliged to star in the domestic tournament, the main objective of this season for the Gunners is the UEFA Europa League.
In the second most important tournament at the European level, Arsenal are doing well. They won all three games they played in Group B against Molde, Rapid Viena and Dundalk.
