  • Saka smashed home to level for Arsenal
  • Gunners twice came from behind
  • Dramatic late win moves Arteta's side top

WHAT HAPPENED? Arsenal fell behind on five minutes at Villa park, before Bukayo Saka took matters into his own hands to fire his side level with an unstoppable half volley after Tyrone Mings had failed to properly clear the ball.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Arsenal secured a huge win after coming from behind twice in a thriller at Villa Park. In a feisty encounter, Saka and Oleksandr Zinchenko hit back after goals from Ollie Watkins and Philippe Coutinho before a dramatic finale saw Jorginho's strike hit Emiliano Martinez and bounce into the net. Gabriel Martinelli added a fourth by rolling the ball into an empty net as Villa went in search of an equaliser. The result puts the Gunners top of the table, although Manchester City can reclaim first place if they get the job done against Nottingham Forest.
