Gabriel Jesus is back! Winners and losers as Arsenal's No.9 shows he's back to lead the Gunners to Premier League glory in win over Leeds
Anything you can do, we can do just as well. That was the message Arsenal sent out on Saturday as they matched title rivals Manchester City’s 4-1 success against Liverpool with a victory over Leeds by the exact same scoreline just a couple of hours later.
The win was Arsenal’s seventh in a row in the Premier League, and was inspired by a brace from Gabriel Jesus on his first league start since November.
Jesus, who hadn’t scored since the win against Spurs in October 1, settled the nerves when he converted a penalty he had won himself following a foul by Luke Ayling midway through the first half.

And, after Ben White had doubled the lead moments after half-time, the Brazilian added to his tally with a sharp finish from Leandro Trossard’s ball in.
A deflected Rasmus Kristensen effort briefly reduced the deficit, but Granit Xhaka’s late header put the gloss on yet another win for Arsenal as they restored their eight-point advantage at the top of the table ahead of next weekend’s trip to Anfield.
