Brazilian Gabriel Martinelli, Arsenal’s first football team player, scored a goal after the break, to lead his team to a difficult 1-0 victory over Leicester City, and topped the English Premier League, by five points today, Saturday.
Leandro Trossard, the Arsenal player who joined last month, thought he had scored the first goal after a wonderful shot into the net before the break, but the referee canceled the goal after returning to the video assistant referee, due to a mistake by defender Ben White against Danny Ward, Leicester goalkeeper, but in the first minute of the half. In the second, Martinelli ran quickly, received a pass from Trossard and fired a low shot into the net.
Arsenal defended the victory to consolidate its lead by five points over second-placed Manchester City, who also faces Bournemouth today, and Leicester ranks 14th, three points above the relegation zone.
