Ben White scored again for Arsenal as the Gunners beat Leeds United 4-1 at the Emirates this afternoon to remain eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table…
Ben White scored his first goal in Arsenal colours a few weeks ago against Bournemouth & he doubled his tally today against Leeds which makes it his highest scoring season in his career so far.
The English defender had a solid performance against his former club today. The 25-year-old made four clearances, three tackles and won seven duels this afternoon at the Emirates.
Ben White was asked after the game whether he was watching Manchester City beat Liverpool in the early kick-off.
“I don’t watch football, so I was just focused on the game today and that was it.”
Ben White has said in the past he doesn’t enjoy watching football, he just enjoys playing it. He would never sit down and watch a game out of choice and that isn’t changing despite Arsenal being in a title race with nine games left to play.
He’s normally the calmest man on the pitch at times and that probably has something to do with the fact he can switch off from football when he’s not on the pitch, but when he’s on it, like was saw today, he does his job as professional as anyone.
Ben White also went on to say…
“There’s a lot of noise going on outside, and everyone is just keeping it very quiet and just getting on with what we are doing.
I don’t really know what’s right or wrong, I have never been in this position [competing in a title race] before. So we are just keeping quiet, heads down and working hard.”
Whatever Arsenal are doing, they’re doing it right as they sit top of the Premier League with the best chance they’ve had of lifting trophy in 19 years.
