Super sub Chambers helps Arsenal into last eight


Calum Chambers scored with his first touch after coming on as a substitute to help Arsenal secure a 2-0 victory over Leeds in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

Just seconds after replacing the injured Ben White 10 minutes into the second half, Chambers made an instant impact heading Nicolas Pepe’s knockback inches over the goal line despite the best efforts of goalkeeper Illan Meslier.

The Gunners made the game safe when former Leeds loanee Eddie Nketiah pounced on Liam Cooper’s poor defensive header before lifting the ball over the onrushing Meslier.

Nketiah, who made just two league starts in 17 appearances for Leeds during the 2019/20 season before having his loan spell cut short at Elland Road, almost fluffed his lines in front of an open goal, but his scuffed shot found the net to seal Arsenal’s spot in the quarter-finals.

The Gunners, who extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to eight games, will now wait to see who they will face in the last eight when the draw is made on Soccer AM, live on Sky Sports from 10.30am, on Saturday.
