Arsenal have ended a three-game winless streak in the Premier League thanks to a cracking 4-2 win over Leeds.

Mikel Arteta’s side have leapfrogged the Whites to move back into the Top Ten as their returning skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired home a superb hat trick.

Neither team could really get a grip of it early on as Aubameyang’s touch of class edged the Gunners in front.

Granit Xhaka’s pass freed him inside the box and he measured a perfect curler past Illan Meslier.

That strike did open things up before the break, as Jack Harrison tested Bernd Leno, but a quickfire Arsenal double put them three up before half time.

Meslier’s casualness saw him concede a penalty on Bukayo Saka, which Aubameyang confidently slotted home, before Spaniard Hector Bellerin forced in Dani Ceballos’ flick.

And the Gunners weren’t finished there as Aubameyang headed home his third of the day within seconds of the restart.

But with nothing to lose in the final half hour, Leeds did come roaring back into as Pascal Struijk headed home a corner and Helder Costa slid home to break some life into it.

However, Arsenal could and should have increased their advantage in the closing stages as Aubameyang and Saka fired against the woodwork and Meslier smartly denied Martin Odegaard.
