Leeds United boss Simon Grayson is determined not to let the FA Cup third round clash at Arsenal prove a distraction to their league form.
Leeds have drawn Arsenal at the Emirates for the second season in a row in the third round, which is due to take place over the weekend of January 7th and 8th.
In the past two seasons, Leeds have faced Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in the competition but have seen a dip in their league form following the games.
Speaking on the official website, Grayson said, ‘These are games you look forward to, but equally we have a lot of important league games ahead of us before then and it’s those games that are our bread and butter.
‘Our focus is on the Championship and the games we have coming up. There’s no question of anyone being distracted and when the time is right we will look forward to the Arsenal game and think about it.’
Leeds are currently handily placed in fifth place in the championship table and have won four of their last five league games.
