2-4 dramatic win for Arsenal at the Villa pack was good to take them back to the top of the table

Despite failing to score in the first 90 minutes, Arsenal defeated Aston Villa 4-2.

The Gunners struggled to establish their rhythm early on, and they were punished in the first 15 minutes when Ollie Watkins was discovered in the box and fired home.

Our reaction was incredible, with Eddie Nketiah denied by a goal-line clearing by Tyrone Mings before Bukayo Saka blasted one home with his left.

The home side didn’t fall apart however and remained strong in defence to steady the tide, and they were eventually paid off when Philippe Coutinho closed out a fine team move to put their side ahead again around 30 minutes in, and that was how it stayed going into the interval.

Despite me expecting to see the side come out all guns blazing after the break, it was a seemingly calm start to the new half, and things went from bad to worse when we laid witness to Saka’s leg having to be heavily strapped up, and our main man appeared to be struggling then-on.

Arsenal did manage to pile the pressure on as time rolled on however, putting Emi Martinez right to work, but he was unable to stop us from pulling level for a second time.

Aston Villa actually put Aaron Ramsdale to work in injury time, but we managed to hit them on the counter, with Jorginho’s effort coming off the bar before ricocheting off the goalkeeper and into the net.

With the home team looking for one more goal? Emi moved to the other end for a last-minute corner, leaving us with an open goal, which we duly provided with our sixth goal of the game.
