Ben White could still feature for Arsenal against Leeds on Sunday, according to Mikel Arteta.

White, who spent the 2019-20 season on loan with Leeds, missed the game against West Ham last weekend.

He picked up a muscle problem in his thigh during the win over Manchester United.

However, Arteta could still call on the defender for this weekend's game.

He said: "Ben White is still in contention.

"He needs to train tomorrow to see if he can play."

However, he seemed to suggest Thomas Partey, who has a thigh problem, will remain sidelined for the clash against relegation-threatened Leeds: "For the rest, no more news.”

Arteta signed a new contract with Arsenal on Friday, tying him to the club until summer 2025. He is currently on track to secure Champions League qualification for the north London side.

Arsenal are fourth in the Premier League table, two points ahead of Tottenham in fifth.
