Arsenal entertained Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a positive result at home in the Premier League. The Gunners made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead via Gabriel Jesus’ 35th-minute penalty. Mikel Arteta’s men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Ben White doubled Arsenal’s advantage in the 47th minute before Gabriel Jesus netted his second goal just eight minutes later. Leeds got a goal back via Rasmus Kristensen’s effort in the 76th minute. However, Granit Xhaka scored a late goal for the Gunners as they ended up cruising to an impressive 4-1 win in front of their home fans which consolidated their position at the top of the Premier League table.

Let’s take a look at how each Arsenal player fared during the match against the Whites.

GK: Aaron Ramsdale – 7/10

Ramsdale made a few impressive saves at the back but failed to keep a clean sheet today.

RB: Ben White – 7.5/10

He did his fair share of defending inside his half and scored a good goal in the 47th minute.

CB: Rob Holding – 7/10

Holding made a few important clearances at the back and was a strong presence in the air.

CB: Gabriel – 7.5/10

The Brazil international gave a good account of himself on the defensive third of the pitch and was a threat going forward as well.
