Bacary Sagna has claimed that both Arsenal and their upcoming opponents Leeds United play a nice brand of football, as the two teams prepare to clash at Elland Road on Sunday.
Mikel Arteta’s side travel to Yorkshire to face Leeds in the Premier League and both teams go into the contest having lost three of their last four league matches.
The Gunners are currently 11th in the top-flight table after an underwhelming beginning to the campaign and their struggles have come in front of goal, albeit they have started to find an identity under Spanish boss Arteta.
Meanwhile, Leeds have been the division’s entertainers so far since their return to the Premier League and they play an expansive style that usually leads to plenty of goals.
Ex-Arsenal defender Sagna has posted on Twitter ahead of the weekend’s match between his former club and Leeds:
Leeds vs @Arsenal on sunday. Should be an interesting game with 2 teams playing nice football. This is how i remember playing them last. That was a good game. With a cheeky rocket goal 😅 pic.twitter.com/gFT8h2lisy

Both teams are going to be desperate for three points on Sunday due to the fact they were struggling before the international break and it’s a chance for them to turn the corner.
Arsenal will not find a better opponent to try break their troubles in front of goal, as Leeds are going to give them opportunities based on the way they’re performing at the back and it does make for an interesting clash between the two teams.
They played against each other back in January with Arsenal winning 1-0 in an FA Cup tie, but Leeds were a threat during that fixture and should take confidence going into the weekend.
