Following another dull international break for Leeds United fans, it did give manager Marcelo Bielsa and the first team squad some downtime given our efforts so far in the 2021 Premier League season and today it was back to the grind as we welcomed a less than ‘invincible’ Arsenal to Elland Road.

It was never going to be an easy game as despite their struggles this year, they have a quality squad but again, unfortunately, it was our own inability to find the net on a more regular basis that cost us all three points – but another point on the board shouldn’t be sniffed at.

With the main negative again being only four shots on target from an overall 25, the positives are again game management – the chance creation itself – along with another good defensive performance that limited them to only two shot on target from an overall 9.

The media line might be ‘poor Arsenal’ but I think most Leeds fans will be pleased with what they saw and had we found the net, pleased would’ve become delighted.

In 1967, goalkeeper Gary Sprake unfortunately gifted Liverpool a goal as he threw the ball into his own net - which defender was he actually aiming for?
