File under ‘couldn’t have dreamt it better’
After very nearly knocking Arsenal out of the FA Cup at the Emirates it was always going to be a tough ask for Championship side Leeds to produce a repeat performance in the replay at Elland Road.
And it looked like they were going to capitulate and go out without much of a fight when Arsenal raced into a 2-0 lead. Then midfielder Bradley Johnson produced this scorcher to set the match up nicely at half-time, with Leeds trailing by just one goal.
Although the Gunners eventually progressed with a 3-1 victory, it is the Leeds goal that everyone will be talking about today. It is one of those goals where you could quite happily watch the trajectory of the ball for a good few hours.
