Arsenal got a deserved victory over Aston Villa Friday night to move into the top half of the Premier League table.

Thomas Partey gave Arsenal the lead as he headed in Emile Smith Rowe’s corner – having earlier hit the crossbar.

The Gunners earned a deserved second in stoppage time when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put back his own rebound after Emiliano Martinez denied an initial spot kick following a Matt Target foul in the area.

Another goal from Emile Smith Rowe – put the Gunners 3-0 up, before Jacob Ramsey’s consolation for the visitors 10 minutes from time.
