Leeds forward scores sensational brace at Liverpool as we look at the best Premier League 2 moments

Two spectacular strikes from Joe Geldhardt helped Leeds United to a thumping 4-0 win at Liverpool, as we look at standout highlights from this weekend's Premier League 2 matches. 

For the first of his brace in their Division 1 match, Geldhardt picked up the ball from 45 yards out and firing a left-foot shot beyond goalkeeper Marcelo Pitaluga.

The 19-year-old rifled in their fourth from distance and was only denied a hat-trick by a fine late penalty save from Pitaluga.

Arsenal on fire

Elsewhere in Division 1 an Arsenal side reduced to 10 men after Omar Rekik's dismissal on 36 minutes triumphed 6-1 at London rivals Chelsea.

Mika Biereth netted a hat-trick and Folarin Balogun struck twice, before an own goal from Lewis Hall made it 6-0. Jayden Wareham pulled a late goal back.

The Gunners were also on form in a London derby victory at Under-18 level this weekend, with Charles Sagoe Jr scoring a brilliant winner to secure a 2-1 U18 Premier League Cup success at West Ham United.

Man Utd leave it late

A late goal from Zidane Iqbal secured a 2-1 win for Manchester United that ended Brighton & Hove Albion's unbeaten start to 2021/22.

Anthony Elanga had fired the Red Devils ahead from the penalty spot before Swiss striker Lorent Tolaj levelled.

Penalty save not enough

In Division 2, substitute goalkeeper Ollie Wright's stunning penalty save from Max Thompson wasn't enough to prevent 10-man Southampton slipping to a 2-0 defeat at home to Burnley.
