A five-goal thrilling encounter kick started Matchday 17, a skeletal matchday that will only birth four fixtures.

Arsenal walked into the tie on the back of spinning wins against Westham in the midweek and Southampton the weekend before while it’s been a burning hell for Leeds having been roasted 7-0 against Manchester City during the week.

Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli gave the Gunners the lead capitalizing on a defensive error in the box and also doubled their lead feeding on a defense-splitting pass from Granit Xhaka.

Arteta’s boys got their third of the first half courtesy of Bukayo Saka who danced his way across the Leeds penalty area.

The hosts pulled one back all thanks to a penalty converted by Raphinha but it will only prove to be a consolation as the Gunners added their fourth of the evening through Emile Smith-Rowe who came from the bench to grab the final goal.

It’s been a week to forget for Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds United and their fans as they have conceded eleven goals in the space of three days with their Keeper Meslier making series of saves to reduce the deficits.

Meanwhile it’s high-flying for Mikel Arteta and his boys as they keep coasting through. Arsenal have now their last three games scoring goals aplenty in them, the absence of star forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang makes their story more interesting.
