Aston Villa 2-4 Arsenal


Two goals in injury-time gave us a superb comeback victory in an all-action encounter at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon.

Ollie Watkins had put the hosts ahead early on before Bukayo Saka pulled us level with a screamer. Philippe Coutinho restored Aston Villa's lead before the break, but we came roaring back after half-time.

Alex Zinchenko drew us level with his first Arsenal goal - but it looked as though we would have to settle for single point before the late, late drama.

An own goal from former Gunner Emi Martinez – when Jorginho’s shot hit the bar and bounced in off the keeper’s head – put us ahead and Gabriel Martinelli sealed the win late on, walking the ball in after Martinez had gone forward for a late Villa corner.

It was the perfect tonic after one point from our last three games, and put us back on top of the table.
