On Saturday, Arsenal and Leeds clashed for the second time this season at the Emirates Stadium; Leeds couldn’t have picked a worse moment to play Arsenal. The title race has reached the home stretch, and so the only thing Arsenal understands now is how to win.
The game was a thrilling battle between the two clubs, with each expecting to win all three points at the end. However, Arsenal was imperious and ran riot, scoring four goals past Leeds goalie Illan Meslier. Ramsdale would have been happy with a clean sheet, but Leeds got a consolation goal.
Arteta’s team dominated the contest in the end although Leeds made a strong start to the game before the Gunners turned things around and improved their overall performance by playing as if they were battling for something, which they are.
Almost every Gunner was impressive, but Granit Xhaka added to his finest Arsenal season yet. At every opportunity, he was lightning quick with the ball; his precise executions, superb dribbling, and good passing possessions helped the Gunners win all three points.
He nodded in an exquisite cross from Martin Odegaard in the dying minutes of the game to score Arsenal’s fourth. Following Xhaka’s goal, social media was flooded with Arsenal supporters congratulating and praising him for his clinical finish.
Fans think that Xhaka should start every one of Arsenal’s remaining games. Arsenal’s goals came from Gabriel Jesus, his first coming from a penalty, Ben White, and Xhaka, while Leeds’ came from Christensen.
Arsenal defeated Leeds United 4-1. Gooners should be overjoyed with the result, which now puts Arsenal eight points clear at the top of the table and makes winning the Premier League title look even closer.
