Arsenal Returns to the Top After Win at Aston Villa.

Arsenal leapfrogged Manchester City and Chelsea to return to the top of the Premier League with victory at Aston Villa.

It was a win that was, for the most part, comfortable in the extreme as goals from Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud inside a minute in the first half gave Arsene Wenger’s team the lead their superiority fully deserved.

Villa had spent much of the game chasing shadows and being outclassed but finally managed to give the visitors some anxious moments when Christian Benteke scored his first goal since 14 September with a diving header 14 minutes from time.

The visitors held on for what was a vital, and deserved, win as they extended an unbeaten record at Villa Park to 15 matches stretching back to December 1998

The good news for the Gunners was the return of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain since the opening day loss to the same opponent, coming on as a late substitute for another second-half substitute, Tomas Rosicky, who suffered a nose injury in a challenge with Gabriel Agbonlahor.
