Arsenal extended their winning streak to seven games, as the Gunners scored two first half goals and added an amazing strike in the final moments of the match, to defeat Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, 3-0.
Kieran Gibbs got the Gunners on the board in the 16th minute when the left back's shot inside the box was too much for Shay Given to handle.
Arsenal weren't done in the first half. Nine minutes after Gibbs's goal, Theo Walcott scored with a right-footed shot on his second touch as he streaked into the box. Defensive midfielder Alex Song's looping assist was perfectly delivered.
The Gunners had another great chance in the first half, but Robin van Persie's shot, with Given off his line, was fortuitously headed away by Stephen Warnock.
The second half saw opportunities for both squads. Substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain went down in the box on the challenge by Stephen Ireland, but the replays showed that Ireland made contact with the ball.
Arsenal would get the final touch on the match in stoppage time, Mikel Arteta had perhaps the goal of the Premier League season with a free-kick strike from outside the box that had almost no rotation on the ball. It was a painful way for Villa to go down on the road.
Arsenal took 19 shots with eight shots on goal, while Aston Villa had three shots with not one on target. Arsenal controlled possession for 72 percent of the match.
