Ian Wright has revealed he is worried about Leeds United facing Arsenal in the Premier League at the weekend after being blown away by them in the FA Cup match back in January.

The Whites are currently sitting in 15th place of the league table, and are set to return to action against Mikel Arteta’s side on Sunday.

Ahead of the clash, Gunners legend said he doesn’t want Leeds to celebrate a win over his former club, though he wants to see them well in the Premier League.

Talking on the latest episode of his Wrighty’s House podcast, he said: “The thing is, you can’t not go into the game not being worried.

“I’ve watched Leeds… did you see when they played us in the FA Cup? They gave us a chasing, bro. Oh my god, it was a joy to watch what they did to my team. I was thinking ‘what’s going on?’

“The movement, everything they were doing, the confidence from back to front.

“Arteta has had a lot of time to think about this game but what he doesn’t have to think about is how Leeds will play.

“It’s a worry because of what happened previously.”
