Arsenal fans go wild as Ben White ‘destroys’ Kalvin Phillips with silky nutmeg in Carabao Cup win over Leeds

ARSENAL fans were left in awe of defender Ben White after he embarrassed Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips during their Carabao Cup clash on Tuesday night.

The Gunners ran out 2-0 victors at the Emirates Stadium thanks to goals from Calum Chambers and Eddie Nketiah.

But it was a superb piece of individual class from White which caught the eye of Arsenal supporters during the routine victory.

Stepping out of his defensive line to mop up the danger, the ex-Brighton centre-back deftly moved the ball from left to right before nutmegging the onrushing Phillips.

Reacting to the silky skill, one social media user said: "White is such a baller."

Another commented: "That was so disgusting but he treated like it was so subtle."

And a third person reflected on his entire performance, saying: "He did some outrageous things last night."

White, 24, left Brighton to sign for Arsenal in the summer for a huge £50million fee.

And, after a shaky start to his Gunners career, the England international has begun to flourish under Mikel Arteta.

White was substituted in the 55th minute of the win over Leeds, but Arteta insists it was merely due to illness and that he should be fit to face Leicester on Saturday.

He said: "There is a bug going on. We lost Pablo [Mari] today as well as he wasn’t feeling great.

"Ben had it as well for the last day or two. He wasn’t feeling great, so we decided to take him off."

Arsenal are now unbeaten in eight games in all competitions, a run which comes off the back of their worst ever start to a domestic campaign.

The Gunners were beaten in all three of their opening Premier League games but have since gone on to climb into the top half of the table.
