Villa 1-0 Arsenal

Arsenal surrendered top spot to Liverpool, after what was a bruising encounter at Villa Park.

With Arteta confined to the stand, after what was deemed to be 'over-celebrating' at Luton, Arsenal lacked cutting edge.

Inevitably, when substitute Nketiah netted, it was ruled out for handball, even though Cash seemed to handle before Havertz.

Martinez ended the game with blood on his face, but a clean sheet.

The warriors may have won this time, but the tables may be turned by the artists in the return fixture.
