EPL: Arsenal back on top after Villa win

Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud scored for Arsenal

Arsenal are back on top of the English Premier League table after Monday night’s 1-2 win over Aston Villa.

The three points from Villa Park saw the Gunners overtake the duo of Manchester City and Chelsea who had earlier won their respective games over the weekend.

Arsenal’s win on Monday was quite dramatic as it took only a minute of brilliance for Arsene Wenger’s men to score two quick goals which helped seal their 15th win of season.

Jack Wilshere broke the deadlock in the 35th minutes and provided the assist for Oliver Giroud seconds after. Even though Villa pulled one back in the second half, it was not enough to deny Arsenal maximum

The fierce race for the EPL title has now seen three different teams occupy top spot in a space of three days.
