(EFE) —

Arsenal’s acceleration towards the next Champions League continued this Sunday at the Emirates Stadium with a win against Leeds (4-0) that fell to the relegation places of the Premier, with two days to go before the end of the competition.

The good moment of Mikel Arteta’s painting seems to have no end. At the key moment of the course, he has not wasted the opportunity to settle among the first four. Arsenal does not fail, adding its fourth consecutive victory against a rival that is languishing and in free fall.

In ten minutes, Arteta’s team had the game in hand. At five, a big mistake by goalkeeper Ilian Meslier ended in Eddie Nketiah’s goal that opened the scoring. Nothing went well for Jesse Marsch’s team, who have been unable to cause the turn that was intended with the dismissal of Marcelo Bielsa.

Nothing has improved in Leeds who conceded the second after ten minutes in a play generated by Gabriel Martinelli that the young and talented striker Nketiah took advantage of again, who accumulates merits to be recognized in the London entity.

Without the ability to react, the visiting team was left whose panorama was even darker with the expulsion of Luke Ayling after half an hour for a hard tackle on Martinelli. Leeds stayed with ten footballers.

Marsch’s team pulled heartily and took advantage of London’s relaxation. It was evident in the goal that he closed the gap for Leeds, in a Junior Firpo corner that fellow Spaniard Diego Llorente headed into the net.

He did not give him to question Arsenal’s victory and avoid falling into the relegation places. Arteta’s team handled the clash well against an inferior rival and conditioned by what they had at stake.

Arsenal, with three games to go, is fourth in the standings with a four-point lead over Tottenham, fifth. Leeds has one salvation.
