Emiliano Martinez’slate own goal proved the turning pointas Arsenal came from behind twice to beat Aston Villa 4-2 and boost to their Premier League title hopes.
The Gunners, who were replaced at the summit after losing toManchester City in midweek, looked to be heading to another underwhelming result at Villa Park before luck went their way in stoppage time.
Ollie Watkins’ clinical finish put Villa in charge early on, and although Bukayo Saka soon equalised, the visitorstrailed at the break thanks to Philippe Coutinho’s sensationally worked team goal.
Oleksandr Zinchecko levelled again and that appeared to be as good as it would get for Arsenal, but Martinez inadvertently put into his own net late on and was then caught up the other end of the pitch as Gabriel Martinelli completed a dramaticturnaround.
