Arsenal return to winning ways with an impressive performance from the Gunners, despite the late Aston Villa surge?
Despite the late drop, probably Arsenal’s best display of the season. Lacazette set the tone, Smith Rowe excelled and Arsenal overwhelmed a Villa side who were way below their best.
Aston Villa surprisingly very poor. They’re much better than that tonight. But Arsenal outstanding and into top half of the table.
By the way, the challenge for the pen was after 46.56. Half time whistle never went. Ref and VAR got it spot on. Rebound allowed. And it was a clear penalty.
Arsenal win 3-1
Brilliant display, full of energy and vibrancy. That’s a glimpse of what Arteta demands. Big performances all round. Fantastic for Ramsdale to become such a cult hero with the fans.
Smith-Rowe outstanding, Nuno Tavares not far behind. Brilliant display. Heaven must be missing a left back.
A great response from Arsenal after Monday night’s performance. Energy and tempo was spot on from minute one, even if Aston Villa were flat. Smith Rowe excellent, but Lacazette and Lokonga good too. White also impressive.
Goals from Partey, Aubameyang and Smith Rowe help Arsenal secure 3 points against Aston Villa.
