Sky Sports journalist Oliver Yew insists Arsenal’s win against Leeds United was not straightforward, but he praised the Gunners for getting the job done.
Mikel Arteta’s side has had an amazing season and was expected to see off the Whites.
However, Leeds needed points to remain in the league and were always going to be very tricky opponents for the Gunners.
Arsenal got the job done eventually and a 4-1 score seems like it was an easy runout, but it wasn’t.
Leeds gave a good account of themselves in the fixture. Arsenal just wanted it more and had more quality in their team.
After the game, Yew said on Sky Sports:
“It wasn’t as straightforward as the scoreline suggested for Arsenal, but job done.
“They restore their eight-point advantage at the top of the table with nine games left to play.
“Next up… a trip to Liverpool.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Leeds deserves some credit because they gave a good fight in the game and showed they had what it takes to stay in the top flight.
However, we were simply better and our standing on the table shows we are the best club in the competition at the moment.
We have to prove that in the next nine games before we can end the season with the title.
Maybe that journalist didn’t watch the 2nd half?
First half was tepid, but 2nd half was complete control by us. 3-0 and you see 3 points would be the result. They got a goal, but the 4-1 scoreline was an accurate assessment of the match.
So we seized all the spoils, got a scare or two but nothing more.
That’s the way the modern games some times turn out,
It’s good for the neutrals, but we were never far away from holding this game by the scuff and runaway with it.
Next stop is Jergen Klopp boys and we know gaffer won’t dismisses Anfield as just a next ball ground, as Ten Hogs learned the hard way.
Hmm, City plays twice a week until they play us
8th – Southampton
11th – Bayern
15th – Leicester
19th – Bayern
22th – Sheffield (FA Cup)
26th – Arsenal
They play 6 matches in 18 days. Surely they will run out of steam until they face us?
You don’t reckon with that, Bro… City is too loaded, too professional, too attuned to handling pressure and tight fixtures that it is wise to not bet on their fixture list as an advantage in our Etihad clash. IT IS NOT.
However, two things will happen… First is that Man City will drop more points in the remaining games. And the second is, City will drop points against Arsenal, EVEN WITHOUT THE PRESSURE OF THEIR LOADED SCHEDULES… This Arsenal team is unreasonably underrated by many, but certainly not by Pep and his team.
Our third meeting in the season will produce a different result in our favour.
