With this triumph, Arsenal moved four points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham three rounds

before the Premier League’s end, knowing that the two clubs will play next Tuesday.


Arsenal is in second place behind Liverpool as the Premier League club with the most

victories in 2022, according to the “Squawka” statistics network, with 10 triumphs compared

to 13 for the Reds.


After three consecutive defeats, the London club has won its last four matches, defeating

Chelsea, Manchester United, West Ham United, and Leeds United, according to the network.

He was making the familiar phone signal after 10 minutes; it may have been for the second

time if he hadn’t refrained from celebrating against the Championship club with which he

spent half a season on loan. That was intended to be the turning point in the career of the

highly regarded young striker, who will turn 23 at the end of the month. It wasn’t quite like that, but these recent games may be.

His early brace was enough to give Arsenal fans their dream scenario: a win at Tottenham on Thursday and they’ll be back in the Premier League. Even if they lost at home to their opponents, they would still be in contention for the fourth and final Champions League spot, with a four-point lead.

Mikel Arteta’s team gave Leeds a chance to get back into this 2-1 triumph, but their greatest moments were not always capped with goals this season.
Nketiah now has four Premier League goals in his previous four games, all of which were hard-fought triumphs that placed Arsenal in control of their destiny, and all of which came from open play. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (two) and Alexandre Lacazette (one) may have started the season ahead of him in the pecking order, but their combined performance cannot compare to what the kid has produced in this crucial run of games.

Arsenal” vs Leeds

Leeds, keen to avoid slipping into the bottom three, chose to swing for the fences, causing nerves to jangle. Jack Harrison forced Cedric off the ball, and a better pass put substitute Rodrigo through on goal. Odegaard‘s shot went wide, but Arsenal struggled to maintain the pace they had established in the first half. Instead, in their desperate attempt to avoid relegation, Leeds dictated the agenda. Meslier came up for a corner before the clock had hit 90 minutes, and when Kalvin Phillips’ clearance deflected into Nicolas Pepe’s path, it appeared Arsenal would rush down the pitch to finish the game.

Instead, the club’s record signing failed to nutmeg Lewis Bate, and the pain continued.

At the final whistle, assistant manager Albert Stuivenberg was so dissatisfied that he confronted Pepe on the field. “We couldn’t really comprehend why he had an empty net in front of him and was taking a touch backwards,” Arteta added. “However, you must have the player’s perception at the time. They are the ones who make the choices. Fortunately, we didn’t require that goal.” Junior Firpo flicked on another late set piece to Rodrigo, whose header was just too close to Ramsdale.

Arsenal clung on till the finish, Gabriel doing just enough to keep an onrushing Daniel James away from the ball. He finally collapsed on it, his work completed, a far more exhausting process than it may have been. Fortunately for Arsenal, Nketiah had given them some breathing room.
