Leeds 1-4 Arsenal: Vote for Player Ratings & MOTM!

Well, we cruised to a comfortable away win over depLEEDed (haha, see what I did there. Cough. Yes, so...) courtesy of goals from Martinelli, Saka, and Smith-Rowe, with only a consolation penalty denying us a clean sheet. It was 0-3 by the 42nd minute, and from there it was really only
complacency that posed any real threat. One has to admire Bielsa's dedication; despite missing an estimated 37 first-team players, he stuck to his tactics. We really put them to the knife, and one shouldn't underestimate the value of an away win even against such an overmatched opponent. With this being the only match to take place today, we rise a little further above our rivals for the fourth spot and dare to dream the ridiculous dream of shouldering our way into third, given Chelsea's inconsistencies of late. Rather than actually doing that, though, let's focus on reality, and the reality is that we have a young, exciting squad that is still just beginning to plumb the depths of its collective potential. Let's give 'em what they deserve after today's showing!
