Leeds vs Arsenal 1 - 4 | Martinelli, Saka, Smith Roawe...A thoroughly dominant first-half performance laid the platform for an excellent away win at L
A thoroughly dominant first-half performance laid the platform for an excellent away win at Leeds.

Gabriel Martinelli netted twice and Bukayo Saka was also on target in a mesmerising opening 45 minutes, in which we mustered 11 shots on target - the most in a single half of Premier League football since 2003/04.

Leeds rallied briefly in the second half, scoring from the penalty spot, but Emile Smith Rowe came off the bench to net his seventh Premier League goal of the season late on to seal the three points.

There were signs of what was to come from the very first whistle. We had three very good chances within moments of kick off.

Martin Odegaard found Alexandre Lacazette with a fantastic throughball, but the Leeds keeper Illan Meslier was down well to deny him when one on one. The rebound was prodded wide by Saka and with our next attack Thomas Partey saw his shot turned away at the near post.

It was a bright start full of intent and ambition, with Kieran Tierney next to test the keeper with a right-footed strike.
That was all in the first five minutes, and the game settled down until Martinelli lashed us into the lead.

The Leeds defence hesitated, appealing for a foul by Lacazette, but referee Andre Marriner waved play on, and crucially Martinelli remained alert, to smash the ball home. VAR also saw nothing untoward with the strike.

The goal brought up a milestone for the Gunners - it was our 7,000th scored in the top-flight of English football, becoming the third side to the landmark, after Everton and Liverpool. Our first came some 117 years ago.
