In the 46th minute of this evening’s Premier League encounter between Arsenal and Leeds, the Gunners made it a rout after capitalising on yet another error from the Yorkshire outfit.
Substitute Helder Costa was punished for attempt to trick his away out of danger, as the Portuguese ace lost the ball after pressure from Emile Smith Rowe and Cedric Soares.
Smith Rowe showed some lovely close control to burst away from Costa as he drove into the box, before a cross-cum-shot ended up at the far post, where Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was on hand.
What a magnificent return to the starting lineup for the Arsenal captain.
Aubameyang scores his first Premier League hat trick!
