Arsenal 2-1 Aston Villa

vs (2-1) | Gabriel Jesus and Martinelli make it five wins!

Gabriel Martinelli popped up with the winner 13 minutes from time to beat Aston Villa 2-1 and extend our winning start to the season to five games.

The Brazilian netted the crucial goal just three minutes after the visitors had pulled level against the run of play through a Douglas Luiz effort direct from corner, which cancelled out Gabriel Jesus’ 30th-minute strike.

However Martinelli’s third goal of the season handed us a deserved victory from a game we dominated throughout, which was the 200th since we moved to Emirates Stadium.

The final stages saw us hold onto the points relatively comfortably with Ramsdale untested again, as we held onto top spot in the and kept our 100 per cent record intact.
