Saliba and Nketiah to miss Leeds game

Arsenal duo William Saliba and Eddie Nketiah won't be involved in the Premier League clash against Leeds United.

Saliba picked up a back injury in the Europa League tie against Sporting and he was subsequently absent for the Crystal Palace game.

The Frenchman has not recovered in time despite the international break and he won't play any part against the Whites this weekend.

Meanwhile, Nketiah continues to nurse an ankle injury and he could be sidelined for a while before he makes his comeback.

Aside from the duo, Mohamed Elneny is obviously a long-term absentee after undergoing a knee surgery at the end of January.

Despite the setbacks, the Gunners have a relatively strong squad and they will be hoping to sustain their title charge next month.

Arsenal currently have an eight-point lead over Manchester City, though the latter have a game in hand over them at the moment.

City entertain Liverpool in Saturday's early kick-off before the Gunners welcome Leeds United to the Emirates Stadium.
