On Saturday, 18 February, there was late drama after Arsenal overcame a difficult afternoon at Aston Villa to win their first game of February 2023.
Mikel Arteta’s men last won against Manchester United on January 22nd, before a run of three losses and one draw in all competitions.
In a dramatic version, Arsenal was forced to come from behind to defeat Aston Villa.
Arsenal fell behind just 5 minutes into the game when Ollie Watkins went past one defender and put it away at the far post.
Bukayo Saka equalized about ten minutes later, only for former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho to send Aaron Ramsdale the wrong way and score a great goal, sending Arsenal into the second half trailing Villa 2 – 1.
In the second half, Arsenal continued to press and put Aston Villa under pressure before Oleksandr Zinchenko equalized for Mikel Arteta’s men with a great finish from outside the box after a short corner.
Aston Villa thought they had secured a draw and one point after the 90th minute, only for former Chelsea star Jorginho to fire from close to 30 yards, which hit the crossbar and bounced.
