Arsenal shows the difference between fighting for the Champions League and relegation

Arsenal beat Leeds United 2-1 in a game in which they showed more ambition, a logical consequence given that they are in the fight for the Champions League places.

Fighting for a Champions League spot is not the same as fighting for relegation. The level of demand is different and Arsenal proved it by defeating Leeds United in round 35 of the Premier League. After Everton's win, the Whites are in relegation zone with three games to go.

From 18th place, they need to improve their next results to stay in the English top flight. Behind them, Watford and Norwich City are already guaranteed to be in the Championship next season, but the third-place has yet to find a tenant in the remainder of the season.

Nketiah was the star

However, in their visit to the Emirates Stadium, Jesse Marsch's side were unable to point. The Gunners started with great skill in front of goal and, in a matter of five minutes, Nketiah scored the double that would end up being worth the victory. Only Diego Llorente scored in the second half to reduce the deficit against Mikel Arteta's team.

The Spanish coach's work has been remarkable and, thanks to Tottenham's draw against Liverpool, his Arsenal have a four-point lead over Antonio Conte's side. This means that there is still some room to work with, even though there are only three games to go to secure the top positions in the table.
