Player ratings: Aston Villa 2-4 Arsenal

Fresh Arsenal newsletter

Arsenal made a stunning second-half comeback to win 4-2 against Aston Villa in Saturday’s early kick off.

It was a poor first half from Arsenal and they looked stunned when Aston Villa scored with two rare moments when they found themselves in the Arsenal box.

But in the second half, goals from Zinchenko, Jorginho (technically a Emi Martinez own goal) and Gabriel Martinelli saw the Gunners take all three points.

Here’s how I rated the players:
Aaron Ramsdale – 7
Oleksandr Zinchenko – 7
Gabriel Magalhaes – 6
William Saliba – 6
Ben White – 7
Jorginho – 8
Granit Xhaka – 5
Martin Odegaard – 8
Leandro Trossard – 6
Bukayo Saka – 7
Eddie Nketiah – 5

Man of the match: Jorginho. I’m going to give it to Jorginho because he had huge boots to fill and whilst Arsenal clearly lack Partey’s athleticism off the ball, on the ball Jorginho has been brilliant and it was his moment of magic that won the game for us.
