EPL: Arsenal defeat Leeds, Chelsea beat Villa, Man Utd held by Newcastle

  • Sports

Arsenal continued their fantastic run in the English Premier League as they defeated Leeds United 1-0 on Sunday.

Bukayo Saka scored the only goal in a gane that was delayed by about 40 minutes because of a power outage.

There was drama in stoppage time when referee Chris Kavanagh sent off Arsenal’s Gabriel for kicking out at Leeds striker Patrick Bamford and awarded the hosts a penalty.

But both decisions were overturned after Kavanagh reviewed the incident on the pitchside monitor.
