Arsenal continued their resurgent chase for a top three finish with a fine victory over Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Shay Given’s poor attempt to save Kierran Gibbs’ shot from a tight angle saw the ball squeeze into the net as Arsenal took an early lead. The Gunners continued to threaten the visitors and they looked very much in the mood when Alex Song set up Theo Walcott to score with a sublime finish to make it 2-0 after less than 30 minutes of action.

The second-half saw similar domination from the Gunners but Aston Villa looked dangers ouon the counter-attack and there were indeed a couple of ‘foot off the pedal’ occasions where Wenger’s men were lucky to escape the concession of a sucker-punch goal from Villa.

But it was always Arsenal’s day and Mikael Arteta made certain of that when he fired home a superb free-kick in injury time to seal a 3-0 win – Arsenal’s seventh on the bounce in the league.

    1. It’s THREE points over Spurs not four. Please, let’s all stay calm, humble and focused with the boys and not get over-excited like kids. That’s when you bottle it like Tottenham did.

  1. great stuff, but that Szczeny worries me, why does he put his player in danger in throwing it to him he then gives it back and his kick is not the best,he seems confused like how to spell his name CB

  2. Good win for us against the villans but nothings confirm yet (3rd spot). We have to keep supporting the boys till the finish line. Let us be humble as supporters and celebrate after the finish line… cheers.
