Arsenal 1-0 Leeds United: Who the Gunners Will Play in Next Round


Arsenal started their FA Cup journey for the season with a difficulty-gotten win over Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night. Reiss Nelson's strike made the difference.

That 1-0 triumph means that Mikel Arteta will have to oversee his side in another game which will be away against Bournemouth in the fourth round.

We were so lucky to have escaped torture from the Championship table toppers in that tie. Our first half performance was nothing to write home about. We looked so disorganized to the extent that we could not manage to hold on to possession.

They were just all over us and it was so unfortunate for them but good for us that they had nothing to show for their commitment at the close of the day. Maximum thanks ought to be directed to Emiliano Martinez for making those saves to keep our lifeline active.

Whatever the manager told the players at the break played a big role in that encounter because that was when dead bones arose. To make it even better for us, Leeds looked drained probably due to the intense energy they put in in the first forty-five minutes.

Alexandre Lacazette smashed a freekick against the bar and moments later, he sent a low cross which less effort from Nelson contributed to its entry. It was a ricochet.

However rough the goal looked, the main aim of football is to win which was exactly what we did. Focus returns to the Premier League where we will be next to continue our season with a trip to Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace here we come!
