Thomas Partey’s header has given Arsenal the lead halfway through the first half, leaving Aston Villa behind.
The game has been one-sided thus far, with the Villains failing to get out of their own half, so it comes as no surprise that they have taken advantage of their dominance to score first.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has already put the ball in the back of the goal, only for the referee to blow up for a foul by Alexandre Lacazette in the build-up, but there will be few complaints now.
After meeting Emile Smith Rowe’s corner and heading it over the goalie and into the far side of the net, Partey has finally broken his drought for the Gunners.
At the Emirates Stadium, it’s party time.
After a bad performance on Monday night, the Ghanaian may well have something to prove, but our team must be cautious not to decrease their level, as they did after taking the lead against Crystal Palace.
