Mikel Arteta has praised Arsenal’s attitude after their 4-2 win over Leeds United on Sunday afternoon, adding he hopes their goalscoring woes are behind them. Catch up with the post-match opinions of Arteta and new signing Martin Odegaard.
Aubameyang broke the deadlock for the Gunners after 13 minutes of play when he cut in from the left before firing his low effort beyond Illan Meslier.
Arsenal were then awarded a penalty in the 41st minute after Bukayo Saka was fouled inside the area. Aubameyang stepped up and sent Meslier the wrong way to double his side’s lead.
Dani Ceballos’ nutmegged pass after a slick team move then set up Hector Bellerin, who beat Meslier at his near post for the Gunners’ third on the stroke of half time.
Aubameyang completed his hat-trick two minutes after the restart with a close-range header from Emile Smith Rowe’s delivery.
Leeds pulled two back later on but it was too little, too late as Arsenal saw out the game.
