Samir Nasri underlined his credentials as an early contender for player of the season with a sparkling display to help Arsenal finally get the better of Championship side Leeds 3-1 in their FA Cup third round replay at Elland Road.
The France international scored the Gunners' opener and was their creative heart as this time Leeds failed to cope with qualities of their Premier League opposition.
Bacary Sagna's cracking drive made it 2-0 and Leeds were left only with the memories of Bradley Johnson's blistering strike to sweeten the bitter pill of defeat, especially when Robin van Persie came off the bench to round off the scoring.
