  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! JESUS SCORES!!!!!! 1-0 ARSENAL!!!! The Gunners take the lead at last as Jesus pounces on a rebound from Xhaka's deflected cross to find the back of the net. Xhaka is played down the inside-left channel by Martinelli and sends a cross towards the middle that takes a deflection off Konsa. Martinez should still make a routine save, but parries the ball into the middle of the area. Jesus is the first to react and steers his effort past the Villa keeper with his left foot.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!! DOUGLAS LUIZ SCORES DIRECT FROM A CORNER!!!!!! 1-1!!!! Villa are back in the game as Douglas Luiz arcs a corner in at the near post. Ramsdale is stranded in the middle of his goal and blocked off by Watkins. The precision of the strike on the ball from Douglas Luiz finds the back of the net. There are appeals from the Gunners for a foul on Ramsdale, but the referee and VAR agree that the goal stands.

  • GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! MARTINELLI RESTORES ARSENAL'S LEAD!!!!! 2-1!!!!!!! The Gunners are back in front as Martinelli's strike beats the hand of Martinez to find the top-left corner. Martinelli starts the move down the left flank before working the ball across to the right flank. Tomiyasu feeds Saka, who clips a cross back to the left flank. Martinelli is there to meet it on his left foot and finds the back of the net, although Martinez will feel that he should have done better.
