The Arsenal player ratings after the Gunners make it seven wins in a row at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon and stay eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table with 9 games to go…
Aaron Ramsdale – 7.0
A couple of decent saves throughout the game, unfortunate not to keep his clean sheet but couldn’t do much for the Leeds goal after it took a deflection.
Ben White – 7.5
Ben White scores again! That makes it two for him this season in the league and a solid performance today.
Rob Holding – 7.0
Done his job well, just like against Palace before the break. Won five duels and had a passing accuracy of 85%.
Gabriel – 7.0
Like Rob Holding, Gabriel done his job at the back well today, like he does most weeks to be honest. Impressive in possession and defensively.
Oleksandr Zinchenko – 6.0
He maybe could have done better for Leeds goal as he turns his back before it hit him. Other than that, he was good. Great in possession as always. 116 touches today.
Thomas Partey – 6.5
Arsenal found it difficult to control the game in the first-half, but Thomas Partey always done well when he had the ball. 96% passing accuracy says it all. Solid performance, nothing special.
Granit Xhaka – 8.0
Xhaka scores again and he was definitely one of Arsenal’s best players today. 94% passing accuracy, controlled the game when he needed to and another top performance from the Swiss.
Martin Odegaard – 7.0
Arsenal’s captain was much better in the second-half, topped off by a brilliant assist for Granit Xhaka’s goal.
Leandro Trossard – 7.5
7 assists for Arsenal since January is a ridiculously good return from the Belgian. he’s such a versatile asset to have with him playing off the right today in Saka’s absence.
Gabriel Jesus – 8.5
Mikel Arteta said before the game that Jesus was close to being back to 100% and he wasn’t lying. The Brazilian was outstanding today and is back on the scoresheet for Arsenal which he deserved. My MOTM.
Gabriel Martinelli – 8.0
He didn’t score a goal today but Martinelli was very good throughout the game. Jesus is back and you can see how well him and Martinelli link-up.
Bukayo Saka 6.5
Jorginho – 6.0
Emile Smith Rowe – 6.0
Kieran Tierney – 6.0
Fabio Vieira – 6.0
