Arsenal scored twice in stoppage time to win a six-goal thriller at Aston Villa and return to the top of the Premier League.
Jorginho’s shot came off the crossbar and bounced in off Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez to put Arsenal 3-2 up, before substitute Gabriel Martinelli raced clear to score as Villa chased an equaliser.
Villa twice led, through Ollie Watkins and Philippe Coutinho, in the first half.
They were pegged back by goals from Bukayo Saka and Oleksandr Zinchenko either side of the break.
Victory ended Arsenal’s run of three games without a win and took them back above Manchester City after losing to them in midweek.
It looked as though it would not be Arsenal’s day until Jorginho and Martinelli’s vital contributions.
There had been so much talk about Arsenal’s title chances after losing to City, but they proved their mental strength with those stoppage-time goals, as well as the fact they twice came from behind.
