End of Match
35' Bukayo Saka
F-T Leeds 0-1 Arsenal
90+5' Gabriel gets a yellow card for his kick on Bamford and Arsenal have a free-kick. Bamford fouled the defender with a push in the back.
90+3' Hang on, though, the referee has been told to go to the pitchside monitor by VAR Paul Tierney...
90+1' RED CARD & PENALTY TO LEEDS! Wow, Gabriel and Bamford have clashed in the box, with the Leeds striker tumbling to the turf after the duo clash and after consulting the fourth official, the Arsenal centre back has been se3nt off and a penalty has been awar
89' A final throw of the dice by Marsch as he introduces Gelhardt in place of Sinisterra.
Another great opening for Leeds as Bamford's clever back flick releases Summerville to the right byline and from his cut back, Sinisterra blazes high over the bar with just Ramsdale to beat.
85' CLOSE! Meanwhile, Arsenal win a corner which is swung in by Vieira from the right and with his first touch, Nketiah almost scores with an audacious near-post flick.
84' Summerville replaces Roca as Marsch goes more attacking for the final few minutes..
82' Jesus is replaced by Nketiah who previously had a short spell at Leeds
77' SAVE! Ramsdale does brilliantly to turn behind Aaronson's stinging drive from the left edge of the box, before the Gunners deal with the resulting corner, for now at least...
76' Klich replaces Harrison, while for the visitors, Tierney comes on for White.
72' Odegaard is removed, with summer signing Vieira taking his place in midfield, with Xhaka taking the armband.
70' SAVE!
Bamford could be on a hat-trick but is yet to score. A precise ball from Harrison finds the striker who runs beyond Saliba before poking the ball straight at Ramsdale who comes out quickly to block the shot.
68' Just outside the Arsenal box, Bamford drags Saliba to the floor. Free-kick has been given and the pressure is lifted.
65' WHAT A CHANCE! Aaronson is released down the left and from his perfect pull back, there was the unmarked Sinisterra eight yards out, but his shot is blocked by an Arsenal defender otherwise that was the equaliser.
63' Leeds 0-1 Arsenal
MISSED! Wow, Bamford drags his penalty inches past the righthand post as Ramsdale dives the right way - what a let off for the Gunners.
60' PENALTY & YELLOW! But Mr Kavanagh has been called over to the pitchside monitor by VAR Michael Oliver and he points to the spot, with Saliba booked for the offence.
A through ball over the top appears to strike Saliba's hand in thee box, but the referee waves play on..
56' Excellent high-tempo start to the second half by Leeds United as they go in search of an equaliser.
Arsenal want a penalty as Odegaard's thumping drive from just inside the area hits Kock on the arm in the box, but the referee says the defender was too close and has awarded a corner instead...
47' And the VAR Michael Oliver has confirmed Chris Kavanagh's on-field decision that Bamford did just push the Arsenal centre half in the back, before volleying spectacularly into the empty goal.
46' NO GOAL! And immediately Bamford volleys into the net, but the referee has blown for a foul by the sub on Gabriel...
46' Second Half begins...
H-T Leeds 0-1 Arsenal
45+1' SHOT!
Another well-worked move from Arsenal as Jesus feeds Odegaard on the edge of the box. His shot is straight at Meslier.
35' GOAL! Leeds 0-1 Arsenal (Saka, 35')
What a finish that is. Saka's excellent start to the game is rewarded.
30' Xhaka slips the ball through to Jesus who is tripped by Roca. The ball rolls to Martinelli who shapes to shoot from the left of the box but the referee blows for a free-kick. It's within shooting range with a host of Arsenal players over it.
28' Jesus spins in the box before going down under the challenge of Struijk. The away fans shout for a penalty, but the former Manchester City gets straight back to his feet and continues without a complaint.
25' DANGER! Sinisterra is causing problems on Arsenal's right side. He picks up the ball in space and crosses for Rodrigo, whose effort is blocked for a Leeds corner. Arsenal clear their lines.
A big chance at the other end now but Jesus puts his effort over after fine build-up play from Arsenal. This is a cracking game.
20' CLOSE!
Nearly a Leeds opener! Rodrigo finds the dangerous Sinisterra on the left and his low shot deflects just wide of Ramsdale's near post!
19' Ødegaard unleashes a powerful shot from outside the box that is blocked. He then looks for Martinelli with a curling ball into the box that is pushed away by the goalkeeper.
18' Former Leeds player White has been given a muted reception from the home fans. He has previously played at Elland Road for both Arsenal and Brighton.
16' White tries to find Martinelli with a deep cross from the right. The Brazilian is ready to swing at it on the volley but Kristensen makes an important intervention and Leeds clear.
14' LUCKY!
Ramsdale is fortunate not to be punished as he races out of his box to sweep up a ball over the top and sends his clearance straight into an Arsenal defender. The ball ricochets kindly for the visitors and they get it away. Nervy.
Rodrigo does well as he charges into the Arsenal box then cuts inside before releasing a low shot which has to be blocked by an Arsenal player.
6' Apart from Sinisterra's shot, the match has been slow after the restart. Arsenal have had more of the ball but have failed to get into Leeds' defensive third.
2' SHOT!
Leeds bright from the restart! Arsenal back off Sinisterra and the winger unleashes a low shot from outside the box which flies a few yards wide.
2' Leeds 0-0 Arsenal
2: PLAY RESUMES! Right, let's try this again!

Play restarts with a Leeds throw-in, with just over a minute on the clock at Elland Road.
Players back out
Players are back out on the pitch at Elland Road.

We're expecting a five to ten minute warm up then play will resume.
Leeds 0-0 Arsenal
10' DELAY! The wait continues. Chris Kavanagh and the linesmen are waiting by the side of the pitch. Kavanagh can't allow play to resume until he is able to communicate with the pitch-side officials and the VAR. But there's still no sign of a solution.
3' A break in play at Elland Road. It appears referee Chris Kavanagh is having a technical issue with his earpiece.
1' First Half begins..
