In the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal met Leeds United in an effort to extend their lead. Gabriel Jesus scored the game’s opening goal in the 35th minute, saving the first half from going to a scoreless draw.
Ayling’s violent tackle of Gabriel Jesus earned the Gunners a penalty, which was awarded by both the referee and the VAR.
The Brazilian scored from the penalty spot to give him the job back from Odegaard and send Meslier running.
After Manchester City’s victory over Liverpool, Arsenal would still be in first place in the standings if the game ended in this manner.
