Latest from Leeds United vs Arsenal match live update, Arsenal latest news today, Arteta latest news today 2021, Arsenal boost or improved their points ahead of Chelsea in the EPL table.
Arsenal FC has claimed another win tonight by beating Leeds United 4-1 at Elland Road. However, Arteta made two wise decisions that helped them record the victory.
Arsenal with this victory is now five points adrift Chelsea on the Premier League table. It was another spectacular night for the Gunners as they dominated Leeds. Gabriel Martinelli’s brace and a goal from Bukayo Saka gave Arsenal the comfortable lead in the first half.
Leeds pulled one back in the second half as Raphinha scored from the spot before Smith Rowe sealed the 4-1 win for Arsenal.
So, here are the two wise decisions Mikel Arteta as they won today’s game:
1. Sticking To His Lineup
Arteta has proven to be a good tactical coach as he repeated the same lineup that won the West Ham United match tonight and his decision paid off at the end.
Arsenal players proved today that there is chemistry going on between them right from the backline, the midfield, and the attack which made them score those goals today.
Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes’s partnership looks great today as Partey and Xhaka occupied the midfield and block most of Leeds’s final passes. Tomiyasu and Kieran Tierney also did a beautiful job in their flanks. While the attackers were also on point.
2. Well Programmed Changes In The Second Half
Mike Arteta sensed that his Arsenal’s side are in charge and control of the game. So he didn’t rush to make the mistake of early substitutions. The first changes came in the 64th minute when he replaced injured Tomiyasu with Cedric Soares.
Arteta made his second change in the 78th minute when he brought in Smith-Rowe for Bukayo Saka and it was Smith Rowe that added the last goal of the game. The last substitute saw Odegaard replaced by Nuno Tavares.
No doubt, Arsenal is at the edge to win the PL despite Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd position in the Premier League.
Leeds United 1- Arsenal 4. What a great performances from Arteta’s squad.
