FA Cup 3rd Round - Arsenal v Leeds Jan 8 Tickets

Arsene Wenger

Leeds v Arsenal Update

Aaron Ramsey and Kieran Gibbs are expected to make their first-team returns for Arsenal.

In 1991 Arsenal and Leeds played out a four-game, seven-hour marathon fourth-round tie, finally resolved in Arsenal’s favour by Paul Merson’s winner at Elland Road.

Having caught Manchester United cold in the third round a year ago, Ken Bates, the Leeds chairman, expects his players to go out with the same carefree and fearless attitude they took with them to Old Trafford. “No one expects us to win, which means they are under no pressure. The players can go out and express themselves and give a good account of themselves,” he said. “Let’s go and show what we can do and with that attitude the pressure is on Arsenal.”

Despite a 12-match unbeaten run, ended by the midweek defeat at Cardiff City, Leeds have conceded 43 goals in 26 Championship games. Shutting up shop will not be part of their gameplan.
