Leeds United crashed to a shocking 4-2 defeat against Arsenal in their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang smashed home a hat-trick, and Pascal Struijk headed home his first senior goal for the club in the second half.

That didn’t tell the whole story though, and it was the mistakes that cost the Whites their impressive recent away record.

Illan Meslier was at fault today.

The young Frenchman has certainly caught the eye at times in the Premier League, but today certainly wasn’t his day.

All four of Arsenal’s goals could have been prevented, and three of them were certainly the keepers’ fault at the Emirates.

For two of them, Meslier’s angles were shocking and it made it very easy for Aubameyang and Hector Bellerin to pick their spots in the first half.

The penalty was the worst of them all.

After dawdling on the ball, Bukayo Saka jumped in and it led to the keeper bringing him down and handing them another chance to score.

Many Leeds fans have savaged Meslier for his performance at the Emirates, with most of them claiming that this has been coming for months.

The majority admitted that this outing proved that the Whites need to bring in another goalkeeper in the summer, as they strengthen their squad.
