Arsenal – Leeds: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang broke out of his slump in a big way, scoring a hat trick in Arsenal’s 4-2 win against Leeds on Sunday at Emirates Stadium

Arsenal scored their first four goals with Aubameyangs three and one from Hector Bellerin, but Leeds scored in the 58th and 69 Minute by Pascal Struijk and Helder Costa to prepare an interesting final

Arsenal are on the table above Leeds, their 34 points are good for the 10th Leeds has 32nd and is 11th Place after playing one match less

The Gunners are now two points behind Spurs, who also played one game less, and six points ahead of fourth place in Liverpool

1 Gunners out-Leeds Leeds (for a while): Push, move into space, walk past with vision Arsenal had it all under control, and Emile Smith-Rowe, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka were setting up a feast for the once cold Aubameyang in front of Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos formed the firm base among them, and Bellerin made the most of his license to go forward from right to front

2 Defense a real problem for Leeds: We’re totally fine if Leeds wants to continue its business as an open team with questions behind the scenes – they’d love Diego Llorente and Kalvin Phillips back – but if they want to push from midfield something bigger, they must be harder to break Given Leeds’ status as a newly promoted employee, that’s fine for now So we’re not particularly critical, but cutting your way through the team is just too easy.Leeds have been beaten 16:11 against 3W-4L since New Years, that’s fun for us, Illan Meslier not so much between posts

3 Arsenal’s cap has been raised with Aubameyang: he’s one of the deadliest finishers in the world and there’s no way to go from serial 20-goal goalscorer to nowhere overnight, the hat trick resulted in two good goals and the penalty is worth one too, and you wouldn’t bet against it boiling up the kind of hot streak that brings him back to 20 and something like that – combined with a healthy Thomas Partey – could bring the Gunners to the Premier League

The 31-year-old Gabonese star increased his Premier League goal to eight with his hat-trick and his total would always go up as his previous league seasons of 22, 22, 23, 31 and 25 added to his 2015-16 season Borussia Dortmund declined

Aubameyang’s first goal came when Leeds’ Jamie Shackleton backed away from the driving Gabonese star until he shot into the near post

The second hit was a penalty, and Bellerin was active after a slicing run to hit the incisive pass from Dani Ceballos It was 3-0 in the half

Aubameyang finished his hat trick within three minutes of half-time when an Emile Smith-Rowe header was hit

Leeds retired before 70 Minute back to two goals with a couple First it was Struijk who stood up to nod Raphinha’s corner kick home, then half-time subs Tyler Roberts and Costa teamed up from the open game
