Aston Villa 0 – 3 Arsenal (Ozil 32, Welbeck 34, Cissokho 36 (O.G))
Man of the Match – Mesut Ozil (Arsenal)
Arsenal blew away Aston Villa, in a 4 minute spell, where they scored 3 goals, to finally break the series of 3 successive draws. Aston Villa had lost defender Nathan Baker and midfielder Ashley Westwood, both to a virus, leading up to the match.
It was the Villains’ though who started the game brightly, with Fabian Delph’s shot being saved by Szczesny, who had to palm it away from the post. He then saved a Ciaran Clark header from close range. Arsenal took on from that point on, and were rewarded when Mesut Ozil was sent clean through by the enterprising Welbeck. The German expertly slided a left footed shot past American international keeper Brad Guzan. He repaid the gesture from Welbeck, by assisting the England forward a minute later, who had an easy finish from 6 yards.
A shell shocked Villa were hit by a 3rd goal when a cross from Kieran Gibbs was disastrously turned into his own net by Aly Cissokho. This win must definitely have bough a sigh of relief for the club and it’s supporters, as it was the first win in the league, in over a month.
Jai Arsenal 🙂
