Arsenal Routed Leeds to Restore Premier League Lead

Arsenal routed Leeds as a response to Manchester City’s thrashing of Liverpool United. The two teams had identical scores, 4-1. However, the victory restored Arsenal’s lead in the Premier League standings to eight.

The Gunners left Bukayo Saka on the bench because of an illness before the game. Thus, the host team looked sloppy in the first half of the action. However, Leeds cannot capitalize on their sharp plays. Arsenal broke the ice with Gabriel Jesus’ goal in the 35th minute. It was his first goal in the Premier League after returning from injury.

According to pay per head bookie software reports, the hosts scored another goal two minutes after the first. This time Ben White found the back of the goal after a low cross from Gabriel Martinelli.

Arsenal Routed Leeds to Restore Premier League LeadAfter halftime, the visitors had difficulty keeping up with Mikel Arteta’s reenergized squad. In the 55th minute, Jesus scored again to extend the margin to 3-0. The former Palmeiras youngster held the ball up well and finished off Leandro Trossard’s cross to demonstrate his power.

Midway through the second half, Leeds manager Javi Gracia made many substitutions and eventually found the back of the net in the 76th minute. Rasmus Kristensen’s deflected shot gave his team a lifeline when it snuck in at the end of regulation.

Unfortunately, Granit Xhaka made it 4-1 with only six minutes remaining, so this was little more than a consolation. Swiss midfielder buried a header past Illan Meslier off a chipped feed from Martin Odegaard.

According to the latest sports news for bookies, Arteta’s team is in an excellent position to win the Premier League title, having won their past five games. However, before their April 26 matchup at City’s Etihad Stadium, Arsenal will try to maintain their lead.
