Arsenal Ratings – Forward
Bukayo-Saka – 8th
Had 60,000 people on his feet with an incredible run from the halfway line into the box, past three Villa players while his shirt was pulled, for which he was unlucky not to earn a penalty.
And Arsenal fans will hope to be treated to such dazzling runs for years to come after the 20-year-old indicated he is ready to sign a new contract.
Must be demoted slightly for missing an absolute sitter at 23 minutes on the clock, beaming high and wide from four yards and having goal in his grip.
Gabriel Martinelli – 7
Perhaps not as lively as his peers.
Unfortunate enough not to score at half-time when Martinez saw a glorious half-volley destined for the top corner.
Came on top of the scorers list in the second half and emerged on the back stick to restore Arsenal’s lead.
Gabriel Jesus – 7
Could have opened the scoring in the 10th minute when he caught Villa from a quick Odegaard free-kick but fired an attempt straight at Martinez.
Showed his killer instincts to pounce on Martinez’s mistake and take home the first set after half an hour
