Arsenal is back on track With Remarkable win victory at Villa

Arsenal regained control of the Premier League championship chase with a 4-2 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Mikel Arteta made two changes from the loss to Manchester City, replacing Takehiro Tomiyasu and Gabriel Martinelli with Ben White and Leandro Trossard.

Villa were off to the perfect start five minutes in as Ollie Watkins pulled towards the far side from a diagonal ball in-behind and produced a step-over to slot in the far corner.

However, the Gunners equalized 10 minutes later when Tyrone Mings’ clumsy headed clearance fell to Bukayo Saka, who blasted a stunning volley past Emiliano Martinez.

The home team reclaimed the lead in the 32nd minute when Philippe Coutinho collected a feed from Moreno and slotted into the bottom corner.

Mikel Arteta’s charges dominated possession for the rest of the first half, but they were unable to claw their way back into the game before the break.

On the hour mark, Martin Odegaard set up Oleksander Zinchenko, who hammered the ball into the near post from the edge of the box.

With 13 minutes remaining, Nketiah dispossessed Ezri Konsa and crossed the ball to an open Odeegard, who pulled his effort wide with only Martinez to beat.

On 83 minutes, Leon Bailey raced through down the right side and blasted a powerful shot that goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale deflected over the crossbar.

Jorginho’s stunning drive hit the post and bounced in off former Arsenal goalkeeper Martinez to give the visitors the victory in the third minute of extra time.
