FULL TIME

Leeds smack the post and the bar over and over again but this one is over and 10-man Arsenal have stolen a point for their first draw of the season.

Leeds bossed it, but it's honours even.

90+5' 

POST!

Raphinha! Again!

He's smacked the post on the angle. How have Leeds not scored?

90+4' 

Everyone goes down injured all over the place.

Saka, then Ceballos, they're dropping like flies.

We had five minutes of stoppage time but it could be up to seven now.

90' 

A pause in play as leno receives some treatment on his elbow. He has to change jersey after shedding a little blood.

88' 

POST!

It's just not Leeds' day.

Bamford smacks the post with a header after a delightful cross from Poveda.

85' 

CLOSE!

Arsenal again!

Saka rounds the keeper this time but Meslier recovers to block the shot anyway.

Suddenly, Arsenal really could be leading this one.

83' 

Huge chance for Arsenal here as Saka does simply brilliantly to weave his way through two or three Leeds defenders and set Aubameyang through on the counter.

The striker bears down on goal and cuts in on his right but Cooper's dives to block the shot.

Shouts for a handball but it's smacked right at him. VAR waves it away.

BAR! Rodrigo cuts in again and bends an effort on to the crossbar.Leno was beaten. Was that the chance?Harrison is replaced by Poveda for the final 10 minutes.

79' 

Arsenal have a rare chance to make something happen with a corner but it's a dreadful delivery from Nelson. This has descended into a scrappy nothing sort of battle now.

Someone make something happen!

77' 

CLOSE!

Rodrigo blats an effort from 30 yards out and it's just a yard wide.

Leeds running out of time.

74' 

No doubt about it, Leeds are finding this harder now against 10 men.

There's so many men to get through and Arsenal know what they want now.

Xhaka almost spoils their plans though after giving the ball away in midfield, and Raphinha finds space on the right to lash a shot into Tierney's shins.

More blocks than a game of tetris.

  • Rodrigo
    OffLuke AylingLeeds UnitedWrong man, right place.  Leeds go 2009 Barcelona popping the ball into the box.  And Ayling is suddenly in space five yards out but his first touch is so poor and lets Arsenal off the hook.   He’s immediately replaced by Rodrigo.

70' 

Bamford almost squeezes his way into a shooting position but is closed out by three blue shirts.

Raphinha now loses possession and Arsenal are charging on the counter. Saka makes great ground and his cross is heading for Aubameyang but for Cooper's clearing header.

 

SEEING RED

65' 

GREAT SAVE!

Raphinha slips a pass through two Arsenal defenders to Dallas whose shot is heading for the top corner but for a diving save by Leno.

63' 

If anything Leeds have had to slow things down as Arsenal are sitting deep and soaking up pressure.

The weight of expectation is on them to win now.

The Gunners only chances now will come on the counter and Aubameyang actually has a snapshot saved but Meslier was never really in any danger.

59' 

Kalvin Phillips is down and up again but that was cause for concern for Bielsa. There star man has just returned.

It's all Leeds up against a blue wall of Gunners now.

Can they breakthrough?

55' 

Oh dear. Things have just gone from bad to worse from Arsenal and I was just about to say they looked a little better.They’re in all sorts of trouble now.

50' 

Pepe fails to clear the first man with a free-kick from deep. Sigh.

That said, Arsenal do look a little brighter in the first five minutes.

49' 

Surely Arsenal will be better. SURELY!

But this was pretty much their story last season except for the fact that Aubameyang would pop up once every 90 minutes and deliver.

There was always the worry they were too reliant on the striker, and without his goals this season they've been exposed so far.

That said, they may snatch a win here and I'll look silly.

46' 

HERE WE GO AGAIN

Goals maybe?

  • End of 1st Half
 

HALF TIME

Pepe sends a half chance just wide in the final minutes of the first half but Leeds have been by far the better team and should be ahead.

Arteta will be very happy to be in at 0-0, Bielsa not so much.

Leeds have bossed this.

44' 

Bamford’s runs to the near post are drawing all the Arsenal players to him while a runner from midfield fills that empty space on the edge of the box. Leeds are doing this over and over again, pulling back into that space while Bamford distracts the defence.Klich this time sends an effort over. They need to score before Arsenal work it out.

40' 

Bamford is an inch away from a free header as Leeds once again push Arsenal down the wings. They'll be gutted not to have scored.

37' 

There's little to no coherence about Arsenal right now. It's odd to watch.

I can't quite work out what they're trying to do. Whatever it is, it's not working yet.

35' 

CLOSE!

Harrison is away down the left and delivers and early ball. Bamford lets it go and it sits up perfectly for Dallas on the edge of the box, but the defender drills his effort wide.

Leeds looking much more dangerous.

32' 

GREAT SAVE! Bamford finds a snapshot five yards from goal after some smart work from Ayling again. The striker makes good contact but there’s not quite enough power on the scissor kick. Leno makes a dining save down to his right.cõ

31' 

Leeds are all over Arsenal right now but with little end product.

They're working it so well down the channels.

28' 

Bellerin slips Aubameyang through inside the box but the striker's shot on the turn flies well over.

Now, Leeds counter up the other end and Raphina goes for goal with lots of whip but just not quite enough. A yard wide.

A lightning quick counter.

25' 

Arsenal free-kick25 yards outDangerzoneCeballos, under the wall, puts it five yards wide.

23' 

CLOSE!

Pepe whips a ball in on an angle and it actually ends up pinging off the bar and back into play.That very nearly dropped in…

22' 

Dallas goes for one of those FIFA efforts where it breaks outside the box at a distance and you simply cannot resist an audacious effort.He makes good contact but its blocked about five yards from his boot.

19' 

So far, it's lots of Leeds possession with lots of Arsenal pressing.

Aubameyang has barely had a touch - if any at all. The Gunners are being stifled at the moment but Leeds have failed to capitalise on their tight tactics.

16' 

BOOKING!

Dallas just tries to nip in for the loose ball ahead of Ceballos but he's a millisecond late and ends up taking down the midfielder.

An obvious yellow.

14' 

CHANCE! Lovely move down the Leeds left.Alioski overlaps Ayling and picks out Bamford six yards from goal. The striker os stretching but forces a fine save from Leno with a toe poke.Best moment of the match.

11' 

Phillips lands a lovely nutmeg on Willian as Leeds continue to press.They’ve made the brighter start for sure. Up the other end, Ceballos goes for goal some 25 years out and sends his effort three or four yards wide.

8' 

Bielsa glares from the sidelines as his side make a traditionally frantic start. They have their best moments of the match here as Raphinha has acres of space to drive into the final third. He cuts on to his right but shanks a shot miles high and wide.Poor effort, but that was some smart, one-touch football that got them there.

5' 

At the other end, Holding does just go for the easy hoof forward and it finds absolutely nobody.But on the other side now Willian does leave Ayling in his wake with a great burst of pace. His square ball is picked out but that was good work from the Brazilian.

3' 

Arsenal pressing the Leeds backline very high up the pitch with Willian doing lots of running early on. The Gunners don't want to let them out but Leeds are doing their utmost to pass their way into an attacking position rather than just hoofing it forward.

GO GO GO!

THREE MINUTE WARNING

17:24 

WHERE IS AUBAMEYANG?

Arsenal's shining star last season has barely made a spark this year.

Two goals in eight games for the fantasy football favourite. Can he take advantage of the leakiest of Leeds defences?

This could be the game that brings his season to life.

17:19 

OMENS

17:13 

REUNITED

17:07 

MID-TABLE RIVALS

Arsenal are languishing in the middle of the table in 13th right now, with Leeds two points and two places lower.

But such is the crammed, early-season set-up right now that a win would take the Gunners up to 8th, while a win for Leeds would actually see them leapfrog Arsenal AND Manchester City into 12th.

It's a pretty mad table if you really take a look at it. What has happened to City??

17:00 

WHERE'S LUIZ?

Well, some things are more important than Leeds away.

16:53 

STATE OF PLAY

So, here's how it looks.

Leeds have the second worst defence in the league, having conceded 17 times.

BUT

Arsenal have not scored from open play in 386 minutes.

Something has to give. Will Leeds keep a clean sheet? Will Arsenal actually score a goal?
