Arsenal climb above Spurs after thrashing Villa

Posted by admin | 7 years ago | 2,388 times

Arsenal jumped above north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to fifth in the PL table following a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Aston Villa at The Emirates.

Olivier Giroud put the Gunners ahead in the eighth minute after latching onto an exquisite flick from the fit-again Mesut Ozil, the Frenchman finishing slotting home past Brad Guzan for his seventh goal of the season.

Villa kept the score in check until the break but the floodgates opened in the second half, Giroud repaying the compliment by playing in Ozil to score before Theo Walcot, Santi Cazorla and Hector Bellerin completed the rout

For Villa, their dismal run continues and they have now gone over six games and incredible ten hours without scoring.
