Watch: Arsenal vs Leeds Highlights (4-1) | G Jesus Best Moment on

Table-topping Arsenal extended their winning run to seven Premier League (PL) games after defeating Leeds United in response to Manchester City’s comeback victory over Liverpool.

Javi Gracia, the manager of Leeds, had lost just once since taking over, and it appeared that trend continued early on at the Emirates Stadium. Although the visitors got off to a stronger start, with Crysencio Summerville especially lively, the league leaders took the lead. After misdirecting a tempting Granit Xhaka cross with his head, Gabriel Jesus made up for it when he was brought down in the box by Luke Ayling. Since Bukayo Saka usually takes penalties, Gabriel Jesus picked himself up to score from the spot. Ayling made up for his mistake by deflecting Gabriel Martinelli’s shot away from the goal line as halftime drew near, saving Illan Meslier from nearly going red-faced.

The Gunners haven’t dropped a league match this year in which they were up at halftime, and an explosive start to the second half resulted in a second goal for the hosts, leaving Leeds with a steep uphill battle. Ben White, a former Leeds player, was the recipient of a tantalizing pass from Martinelli after he maneuvered past Ayling down the left and found room to score at the back post. With less than an hour of play completed, Mikel Arteta’s team was firmly in charge and the match was all but over. To find space in the box and locate Jesus, Leandro Trossard displayed excellent close control. Jesus then finished from close range, scoring twice.

With less than 15 minutes remaining, Aaron Ramsdale was fooled by Rasmus Kristensen’s heavily deflected shot to make it 3-1, but Granit Xhaka’s header quickly put an end to any distant chances of a recovery. Despite having played one more game than Manchester City, the victory restores Arsenal’s eight-point lead over them at the summit of the Premier League standings. Leeds, meanwhile, is perilously above the bottom three.
