As for Leeds, Kalvin Phillips returns to Marcelo Bielsa's team, after being sidelined for a while due to injury. As well as the England midfielder coming back in, new signing Raphinha has been handed his first Premier League start since arriving from Rennes in the summer. The Whites have conceded 17 goals in the top-flight so far this season - which is the second most in the division, so chances shouldn't be too hard to come by for Arsenal at Elland Road.
