London [UK], December 19 (ANI): In the only Premier League match on Saturday, Arsenal eased to a 4-1 victory against Leeds United at Ellan Road.
Gabriel Martinelli scored his first Premier League brace and Bukayo Saka was also on target in a mesmerising opening 45 minutes, in which Gunners mustered 11 shots on target – the most in a single first half of Premier League football since 2003/04.
Leeds rallied briefly in the second half, scoring from the penalty spot.
However, substitute Emile Smith Rowe latched on to Martin Odegaard’s exquisite through-ball to finish and confirm Arsenal’s third straight league victory six minutes from time.
Arsenal stay fourth on 32 points, four ahead of West Ham United. Leeds, who had 15-year-old Archie Gray on the bench, are five points above the relegation zone in 16th. (ANI)
