Gabriel Jesus had a brace as Arsenal beat Leeds 4-1 to maintain their eight point lead at the top of the Premier League Table.
Manchester City had put Arsenal under pressure after they thumped Liverpool 4-1 at the Etihad to reduce the point gap but the Gunners responded with a 4-1 thrashing of Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium.
The League leaders took the lead after Jesus dribbled past two Leeds players but was caught by Captain, Luke Ayling inside the penalty area. The Brazilian attacker carefully tapped the ball down the middle to score his first after his time on the sidelines.
The game seemed to be within reach with Summerville pacing round the ground but it was Ben White who slotted in to give Arsenal the second of the game before Leandro Trossard played in a low pass into the path of Jesus for the Brazilian to tap in his second of the afternoon. The game was slowed down as Arsenal was in full control but Rasmus Kristensen grabbed a deflected consolation for the visitors as Granit Xhaka headed a fine Martin Odegaard cross to make it the fourth of the game.
The win meant Arsenal secured their seventh consecutive win as they restore their eight points lead at the top of the log keeping the hopes of a first Premier League title alive since 2004 with nine games left to play.
Leeds, however, dropped two places to 16th, just two places above relegation zone and level on points with 18th-placed Everton as they continue their survival battle.
