Aubameyang celebrates his goal against Aston Villa

John McGinn gave Aston Villa a 20th-minute lead and Arsenal’s task became even harder when Ainsley Maitland-Niles was shown a second yellow card 20 minutes later.

In spite of being a man down, the hosts dominated possession and equalized on the hour when Nicolas Pepe converted from the penalty kick spot.

That was after midfielder Matteo Guendouzi was fouled in the area by Björn Engels.

Aston Villa was ahead again almost immediately through Wesley, but Calum Chambers replied again for the hosts in the 81st minute.

Aubameyang then pounced to complete a remarkable win for Unai Emery’s side who moved into fourth spot with 11 points.

Aston Villa are third from bottom with four points.
