Player Ratings: Arsenal 3-1 Aston Villa

Arsenal moved within a point of the European spots following a convincing 3-1 Friday night win against Aston Villa.

The Gunners were on a rampage in the first half following the disappointing performance against Crystal Palace on Monday. Goals from Thomas Partey, Aubameyang and Smith Rowe saw Arsenal win convincingly and show budding signs of progress for Mikel Arteta and his players.

Man of the match: Emile Smith Rowe. Emile has been excellent this season and he was the highlight for Arsenal once again in this match. Gliding on the ball, the youngster summarised his form and quality with the Gunners third goal, starting the move in his own half, before finishing it off at the other end just seconds later.

Flop of the match: Nobody!
