Gabriel Martinelli extends Arsenal’s 100% perfect record after a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa at Emirate Stadium on Wednesday night as Mikel Arteta’s side stays top of the Premier League.

The result is likely to heap more pressure on Villa boss Steven Gerrard who has seen his side lose four of their first five fixtures.

Gabriel Jesus put Arsenal ahead in the 30 minutes of the clash in North London after former Manchester City striker swept a low effort past Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez after he had fumbled Granit Xhaka’s deflected shot.

The away side improved after the break and found an equaliser directly from Douglas Luiz’s corner after Aaron Ramsdale makes a blunder as his cries for a foul was turned away by a VAR check.

Arsenal who are the better side in the encounter went straight back on the offensive and regained their lead with Martinelli turning in Bukayo Saka’s pinpoint cross.

Arteta’s men boast a perfect start from the top five leagues in Europe aling with ith Real Madrid, with three victories out of three in La Liga,
