In a thrilling encounter at Villa Park, Arsenal came from behind twice to secure a crucial victory and keep their hopes of winning the Premier League title alive.

Despite being in danger of going four games without a win in the league and falling even further behind leaders Manchester City, Mikel Arteta’s side rallied to secure a dramatic 4-2 win.

The Gunners’ comeback was sparked by Jorginho’s thunderous stoppage-time effort, which deflected in off Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to give Arsenal a 3-2 lead.

And just minutes later, Gabriel Martinelli sealed the victory with a well-taken goal.

The win was a huge morale boost for Arsenal, who had been reeling from their defeat to Manchester City in the previous game.

It also showed that they have the resilience and determination to fight for the title, even when things seem to be going against them.

With key players like Jorginho, Martinelli, and Bukayo Saka in top form, and a renewed sense of confidence and belief, Arsenal will be hoping to build on this victory and mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title in the remaining matches of the season.

But they rose to the challenge and secured a crucial victory in a thrilling encounter.

The victory was a huge boost to Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes and showed their resilience and fighting spirit in the face of adversity.

As always, there were winners and losers from the game. Bukayo Saka was a clear winner, putting in another impressive performance and scoring a crucial goal for his team.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was a loser, facing criticism for time-wasting and then being beaten by a deflection off his own body for Arsenal’s third goal.

Overall, it was a thrilling game of football and a huge win for Arsenal, who will be hoping to build on this momentum in the remaining matches of the season.

WINNER JORGINHO

Jorginho had a slow start to life at Arsenal following his surprise move from Chelsea, but he made a significant impact during their crucial win over Aston Villa.

The midfielder had already put in an impressive display when he seized the opportunity presented to him in injury time.

With a loose ball dropping outside the box, he struck a thunderous shot that hit the crossbar and deflected in off Emiliano Martinez.

It was a moment of magic for Jorginho, who will now feel like an integral part of the team.

His excellent performance in the absence of Thomas Partey proved his worth and demonstrated the wisdom of Arsenal’s decision to sign him in the January transfer window.

Despite initial doubts about his ability to make a difference, Jorginho has now shown his quality and will be looking to maintain his high level of play for the remainder of the season.

LOOSER EMILIANO MAETINEZ

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez was a big loser during their clash against Arsenal, as his time-wasting tactics ended up being his team’s downfall.

Referee Simon Hooper added six minutes of stoppage time in the second half due to Martinez’s actions, and Arsenal was able to take advantage by scoring two crucial goals during that time.

To make matters worse for the Argentine goalkeeper, Jorginho’s strike that deflected in off his back will be counted as an own goal.

And just moments later, he was caught upfield during a corner, allowing Gabriel Martinelli to score into an empty net and complete a miserable end to the game for Martinez.
