A goal from Bukayo Saka consolidated Arsenal’s position at the top of the table after an extraordinary afternoon at Elland Road.
The game had just kicked off before it was suspended due to a power cut and the referee’s communications being on the fritz. 40 minutes passed before it began again, with an even first half, and the Gunners went in ahead thanks to Saka’s incredible finish from a tight angle.
After the break through, Leeds dominated. Arsenal couldn’t get into the game, and when William Saliba handled in the box, the home side had a chance to equalise but Bamford put his penalty wide.
It was backs to the wall stuff, and late on Leeds were awarded another penalty when Gabriel was sent off for kicking out at Bamford, but VAR checked and the Leeds man made the initial foul and the decision was overturned.
A big three points for Arsenal, but an unpleasant experience in getting them!
