‘No doubt’ – National media react as Arsenal keep 8 points gap over Man City after Leeds win

The Premier League season is in its final stages following the recent international break. Arsenal began the weekend with a lead of eight points over Manchester City, having played an extra game. However, their 4-1 win against Liverpool on Saturday meant that Arsenal had to maintain their lead.

 Mikel Arteta’s team played against Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium, hoping to continue their winning streak. Gabriel Jesus, Leandro Trossard, and Gabriel Martinelli formed a new attacking line, and they all made an impact. 

Jesus scored his first goal since returning from a long-term knee injury ten minutes before halftime. Ben White scored shortly after halftime, and Jesus quickly added another goal to complete his brace.

Rasmus Kristensen scored a goal 15 minutes before the end of the game, which highlighted Arsenal’s defensive weaknesses.

However, Granit Xhaka scored a late goal to increase Arsenal’s lead. This win brings Arsenal closer to the end of the season with their lead still intact. The national media praised Arsenal’s performance in their usual manner.

The Guardian

According to The Guardian, Arsenal managed to defeat Leeds United with relative ease and they praised the team’s progress to reach this stage.

 The match report reads: “The marvel of this comfortable, ultimately emphatic victory for Arsenal was its sheer mundanity.

“They were smooth enough, scored four goals and could have added more, but if they navigate the next two months successfully it would be some feat to recall the highlights of Leeds’s visit in minute detail.

“That, in itself, tends to be the sign of a team’s transition into title winners. Arsenal have rolled through their past three top-flight games, winning them all serenely but patently leaving something in reserve.”

The Mirror

The Mirror’s report focused on six key takeaways from the game, one of which was the impressive performances of Ben White in recent weeks. The report also mentioned how his good form was overlooked by the England team.

The report states: “The 25-year-old, who’s thrived at right-back role this season, wasn’t selected by Gareth Southgate for the latest England squad last month but his defensive qualities are clear for all to see.

“His knack of getting on the scoresheet is becoming a feather in his cap, too.”

The Telegraph

The Telegraph chose to highlight the return of Gabriel Jesus and labeled his form as a significant boost to the Arsenal team.

The report reads: “It is testament to Arsenal’s strength as a team that the lengthy absence of Jesus did not derail their title charge over the past few months.

“This, clearly, is no one-man team. But there is also no doubt that Jesus makes them better, adding a different physicality and flexibility to the front line.”
