Arsenal left Argentina’s Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United without a League Cup by eliminating them 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
The ‘Gunners’, who have not known defeat since August, put a team with many substitutes on the field of play, but still beat the ‘Whites’ with two goals in the second half.
Callum Chambers opened the scoring with a phantom goal threat, in a header at the far post that Illan Meslier took from behind the line and that the referee validated the receipt of the goal technology warning.
At 1-0, Leeds blew themselves up on a terrible loan from Liam Cooper, which left Eddie Nketiah alone against the goalkeeper. The young English player raised the ball with a lot of class over Meslier and then defined an empty goal.
With the pass to the quarterfinals, Arsenal raises to eight the games they have not lost and expects a rival in the draw to be held this Saturday. Leeds have already accumulated three games without a win and are out in the race for the first title of the season.
