EPL: Aston Villa Thrash Arsenal 3-0 At The Emirates

Aston Villa shocked Arsenal in an English Premier League encounter on Sunday night.

Ollie Watkins scored a brace as Villa ran out 3-0 winners at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners fell behind when Bukayo Saka inadvertently turned in Matt Targett’s cross in the 25th minute.

Mikel Arteta’s men had chances to equalise through Alexandre Lacazette, Rob Holding and Nicolas Pepe but they wasted them. Their wastefulness in front of goal was soon punished.

Watkins scored twice in three second-half minutes to seal the win for Aston Villa. He scored the second goal of the game with a header from a Ross Barkley cross in the 72nd minute.

The third goal came in the 75th minute after Jack Grealish played a lovely ball into the path of the striker, who buries it past Bernd Leno.

The victory takes Aston Villa up to sixth in the Premier League table heading into the international break.

Arsenal’s £45million summer signing Thomas Partey was forced off at half-time with a suspected thigh injury.
