Arsenal 3 Aston Villa 1 LIVE REACTION: Mikel Arteta’s men produce impressive display in Emirates win – latest updates


Goals, missed penalties, VAR drama, tactical mishaps, it’s been an exhausting evening and we’re only one game into the Premier League weekend.

It’s already a weekend though that Arsenal can tick off as a success. The Gunners put in their best performances of the season to blow a poor Aston Villa side away and earn a win that lifts them into the top half of the table.

For Dean Smith, it’s back to Villa Park, back to the drawing board, and – surely – back to a back four. The West Midlands club shouldn’t be hitting the panic button just yet but performances like this evening’s will not be tolerated for long.

That’s all from us for tonight, but we’ll be back bright and early tomorrow for coverage of Chelsea – Lukaku and Werner-less – against Norwich. Until then, thank you and goodbye.
