LUFC Wenger - We miss Leeds in Premier League

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger would like to see Leeds to return to the Premier League after seeing his side knock them out of the FA Cup.

Arsenal finally overcame Leeds at the second attempt in the replay at Elland Road as they produced a classy display to beat a spirited Leeds side.

Wenger would now like to see the Yorkshire side return to the top flight for the first time since 2004.
Speaking on Sky Sports News, Wenger said, 'I was impressed by the way they (Leeds) were organised and their spirit and physical qualities. I think they have a good chance to be in the play-off - we miss Leeds in the Premier League,'

Arsenal needed to rely on a penalty in the last minute in the first game at the Emirates but they made no mistake second time around.

Samir Nasri quickly fired the Gunners ahead with a goal in the fifth minute and then they continued to play with an assurance that was missing in the first game.

Sagna made it two just past the half hour as the dominated the game.

Bradley Johnson gave Leeds hope a few minutes later with the goal of the game when he beat Szczesny from fully 35 yards.

The second half was much tighter and Wenger needed to bring on Cesc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie to put the tie beyond Leeds.

Van Persie added a third for Arsenal as Leeds chased the game.
