ARSENAL Extended Their Six Games Unbeaten Run With 3-1 Win Over ASTON VILLA

Arsenal extended their six games unbeaten run with 3-1 home win over Aston Villa in the Premier League on Friday.

The win moves Arsenal up to the ninth position with 14 points same as Manchester United in the sixth position.

A Smith Rowe corner led to the opening goal with Thomas Partey’s header going in the far corner to give the Gunners’ a 23rd-minute lead.

Referee Craig Pawson gave the penalty following a VAR review in added time after Villa defender Matt Targett went through the back of Alexandre Lacazette’s legs.

The hosts scored their second goal before the break with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang driving home after his penalty was saved by Villa’s former Arsenal goalkeeper Martínez.

Smith Rowe made it 3-0 in the 56th; finishing a well-worked counter-attack by cutting in from the left and seeing his low shot go in off the post after a deflection off Tyrone Mings. 

Villa netted a goal back eight minutes from the end when Jacob Ramsey curled the ball into the top corner after Leon Bailey had burst across the front of the penalty area.
