Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has lavished praise on Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta for the way he sets his team up.

Leeds United host the Gunners at Elland Road on Sunday in what is expected to be a tough clash between the newly promoted side and the north London club.

Bielsa’s Leeds have held their own since being promoted to the Premier League and have collected 10 points from their eight games this term.

Arsenal have had an inconsistent start to the season and go into the weekend’s game on the back of a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa before the international break.

However, Marcelo Bielsa has been impressed with the Gunners boss and speaking at a press conference ahead of Sunday’s game, he said of Arteta’s side “Arsenal is one of the best teams in the league. They have players of hierarchy in all of their lines.

“They have a manager who proposes a style which distinguishes the team. He’s a coach who wants his team to play as he projects.

“From a tactical point of view, if you watch Arsenal closely they show things that I have never seen in any other team.”

Arteta was Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City before he decided to take the role of first team manager at his former club.

There were reports of a training ground bust up between David Luis and Dani Ceballos on Thursday and Arteta will hope his players can put the drama behind them when they travel to face last seasons EFL Championship winners.
