Capitulation at the Etihad
Tuesday night saw Leeds destroyed by Man City 7-0. The game was over by the 13th minute when Jack Grealish headed City’s second goal in.
However, City showed no mercy and subjected to their largest defeat this season.
Leeds will be hoping some of their star names return sooner rather than later as they are struggling to score goals, their defensive record is now the worst bar Newcastle and Norwich. They also have one of the most difficult Christmas schedules in the league coming up.

Arsenal move into the top four
Wednesday’s 2-0 victory in the London derby over West Ham not just gave the Gooners bragging rights, but it also saw them replace the Hammers in fourth place.
West Ham never really looked like scoring as Arsenal won their fourth home match to nil in a row.
However, Arsenal playing away are considerably different to the Arsenal that play at the Emirates, and anything could happen considering Leeds’ midweek result.
Leeds United vs Arsenal predictions
This could go one of two ways, the hangover from the heavy defeat either continues for Leeds, or they keep things tight and shock a possibly overconfident Arsenal.
Either way, we believe there will be enough goals in this one to break the over 2.5 goals barrier.
We predict that Leeds will set their stall to keep things tight given their last match and that after 30 minutes the two sides will be level.
