Kieran Tierney limps off injured during Arsenal's game against Liverpool in the Premier League on April 3, 2021

Arsenal will again be without the service of Granit Xhaka due to a knee injury. They most likely are likely to still be without Kieran Tierney while Leeds winger Raphinha could be available.

Leeds united Kalvin Phillips an unused substitute against Wolves returns to the squad following injury but Patrick Bamford, Luke Ayling, Junior Firpo, and Robin Koch remain sidelined due to injury.

A lack of options in a defensive area could see Jamie Shackleton and Stuart Dallas continue in the full-back areas, though, while Bielsa is likely to resist the temptation to bring Kalvin Phillips into the side.
