Villa 1-0 Arsenal (half time)

A McGinn goal was all that separated two of the most in-form Premier League teams at the break.

Villa started more brightly with Bailey causing problems down Arsenal's left.

The Gunners clawed their way back into the game and Martinelli had a shot cleared off the line.

Martinez made a couple of smart saves from Odegaard, Saka and Jesus to keep Villa's lead intact.

The question everyone will ask is were Arsenal right to let Martinez leave. The answer is still the same: no. Although Raya is better with his feet and an upgrade on Ramsdale and Leno, I'm not sure he is quite as good as Martinez, who looks unbeatable today.
