The Carabao Cup is a chance to put league form to one side and that's something that might suit Leeds United more than it will their hosts for this evening's Last 16 EFL tie, Arsenal. The team news is in and Mikel Arteta has sprinkled a few reservists into his XI to take on Leeds. With home advantage, a place in the quarters beckons. Make sure you know how to watch an Arsenal vs Leeds United live stream wherever you are in the world.
Their 10-man loss to Liverpool to one side, Leeds United have looked more solid this season than last. They've also looked a lot less exciting too, and there lies the problem for this suddenly not very Bielsa looking team. They're just not scoring enough goals.
The fear for Leeds fans is that they've perhaps been found out and that their second season in the top flight may go the way of so many after a cracking first year for a while. Centre forward Rodrigo's last gasp equaliser at the weekend will have done the team's belief the power of good but there's no Raphinha in the side after the winder was subbed at the weekend.
For Arsenal, this is a decent opportunity to rotate the first teamers. Maitland-Niles, Pepe, Nketiah, Elneny and Martinelli all make the team with Saka and Lacazette waiting in the wings
It's a 7.45pm BST kick-off (2.45pm ET) today at the Emirates Stadium. The match is on Sky in the UK but read on to find out how to watch an Arsenal vs Leeds live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch an Arsenal vs Leeds live stream abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Carabao Cup rights holders, you won't be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
here are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.
Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days (opens in new tab)
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – it's easier than you think.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the Arsenal vs Leeds, you may wish to choose 'Canada' to access DAZN or 'Australia' for Kayo.
If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). You could also try NordVPN (opens in new tab), which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark (opens in new tab) which offers 24 hour assistance.
