Arsenal managed to secure a draw against newly promoted Premier league side, Leeds United. It was such a thrilling encounter as Arsenal gasped for a draw at the closing stages of the game.
Arteta named a tactical starting lineup as he decided to keep Saka on the bench for Willock. Willian, Aubameyang and Pepe all started in the front with Arsenal side looking like a real attacking side. However, the performance on the pitch showed otherwise as Arsenal failed to get a shot on target in the first 45minutes.
Leeds played pretty well but their clinicality can be questioned as they hit the post four times. Arsenal's quite lucky to stay in the game and the red card of Pepe made things really worse for them. With a man down, Arsenal were forced to retreat as Leeds dominated the game.
Arsenal lacks the attacking bite as the midfielders showed no sense of creativity in the middle of the park. Fans were quick to point out the absence of Ozil as he seem like the only Arsenal player that could provide the sort of creativity needed. However, Ozil is not in Arsenal's squad for the season after he was left out from the team list in all competition. After the draw against Leeds, fans are really yearning for Ozil to be called back into the team. Check out their reaction in the pictures below:
