Leeds United welcomed Arsenal to their home Ground after suffering a 7-0 loss to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and they were really hoping to bring great momentum coming into this match up, Leeds, severely depleted with injury and missing nine players, were still full of running. But it would prove a bas first half for the home side as Gabriel Martinelli netted twice and Bukayo Saka was also on target in a interesting opening 45 minutes, in which Arsenal registered 11 shots on target the most in a single first half of Premier League football since 2003/04 season.
Leeds came on firing in the second half and got a goal back through a penalty from Raphinha, not long after Arsenal subtitute Emile Smith Rowe made in 4-1 of the night after receiving a wonderful pass from Martin Odegaard, it was the midfielder’s 7th of the season what a great joy for the teenager.
Arsenal now move 4 points clear above top four while awaiting results of the postponed Matches. It has been a difficult hell of fixtures for Leeds United as they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool in their next match up, Arsenal play host to Sunderland on Tuesday in their Carabao Cup run and would return to Premier League action to face Norwich City.
