Leeds ended a 5-game winless streak with a convincing thrashing of desparate Scunthorpe at the weekend but at 5/1 (), will have to do a lot more to beat Arsenal.
The Gunners are inevitable 8/13 favs (Betfred) and looked the part, at times, against West Ham but you can not under-estimate Leeds’ goal scoring record at Elland Road – 29 goals in 14 league games.
So, with Becchio (3/1, Ladbrokes), Gradel (5/1, also Ladbrokes) and Snodgrass (5/1, 888sport) all looking to get on the scoresheet, Arsenal will do well to keep a clean sheet – a 7/5 chance with Coral.
However, Arsenal should create enough to score themselves but look a little skinny at 4/7 (Sportingbet) to register at least 2, especially considering they only managed 1 on their own patch.
A draw perhaps appeals then, at 10/3 with Betdaq, perhaps a repeated 1-1, coming in at 7/1 with William Hill. Having made it that far, Leeds could ride it out to qualify (11/4, 888sport) and the Yorkshire-men could even take the glory in a penalty shoot-out (20/1, Coral).
