It was a game that had it all – red cards, goals, penalties, VAR decisions, and a technology breakdown that led to both teams having to go off the pitch until it was sorted.

Leeds vs Arsenal showcased the highest of Premier League drama but when the dust had finally settled, it was the Gunners who somehow, some way found a way to win, as they’ve been able to do so consistently in the top flight thus far.

After the full time whistle had blown, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about the result.

Raphinha, whom Arsenal have been targeting with the aim of reinforcing their options on the attacking flanks, is pushing for Leeds United to do business with Barcelona, rather than any other club, according to Phil Hay of The Athletic. It obviously spells bad news for the Gunners and manager Mikel Arteta, who is believed to have considered the Brazil international as the perfect candidate to strengthen the starting XI and inspire Bukayo Saka, first and foremost, to raise his level of performance in order to fight for a place in the team.

Arsenal have been credited with strong interest in Leeds United winger Raphinha. The Brazil international has been a target for Barcelona for a long time, but as the Catalans hesitated amid their financial struggle and Leeds demanding a hefty fee, Arsenal gradually picked up the leading position in the race for his services. Now, however, David Orstein reports for The Athletic that Chelsea have entered the fray and are the closest to getting the deal over the line.

Arsenal are one of the clubs credited with interest in Leeds United winger Raphinha this summer. The Brazil international was said to be keen on joining Barcelona and had even agreed personal terms with the Catalans, but the two clubs simply haven’t been able to reach an agreement over the transfer fee as Barcelona, still troubled by financial issues, refuse to meet Leeds’ reported valuation of £55 million.

Arsenal are obviously working hard on strengthening their ranks for the upcoming season. They’ve managed to convince Eddie Nketiah to sign a new contract and stay put, thus ensuring that the striker department isn’t left completely bare, and they’ve apparently completed the signing of midfielder Fabio Vieira from FC Porto, though we’re still waiting for the Gunners to confirm that as the Portuguese club already have.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are now working on a deal to sign Lisandro Martinez from Ajax. Primarily a centre-back, the 24-year-old Argentinian can play as a fullback on either side as well, and as a defensive midfielder is tasked with that role.

After the full-time whistle had blown, manager Mikel Arteta gave his thoughts on how it all went down.

Arsenal knew December was going to be a crucial period for them in their push to finish in the top five and thus far, they’ve been handling it pretty well – after an initial blip, that is.

Arsenal are riding a nice wave of momentum right now and while the popular opinion is that it could come to an end at any moment, many Gunners fans are choosing to sit back and enjoy the ride – as they should.

They’re finally starting to break into the top half in the Premier League and in doing so they’ve not only bested rivals Tottenham Hotspur, but they’ve also entered into the conversation for a top six run. It’s going to be easier said than done for them to actually get there but the fact they’re even in the mix – or could be soon – is a great sign.
