Arsenal player ratings vs Leeds – Premier League


GK: Bernd Leno – 7

Solid when called on and brilliant save to deny Dallas on the hour.

DR: Hector Bellerin – 5

Came off second best in his battle with Harrison and failed to get forward

DC: Rob Holding – 5

Stood pretty firm in middle with some timely block

DC: Gabriel – 5

No mistakes but nothing notable in the positive column either

DL: Kieran Tierney 6

Pushed forward when given chance and some brave blocks late on

MC: Dani Ceballos – 4

Loose distribution, shot wide early, failed to impose himself on the game

MC: Granit Xhaka – 4

Missed attempted clearance nearly punished by Dallas, bypassed all too easily
