Aston Villa get their “revenge” on Arsenal to secure record-breaking home win

With their thrilling victory over Arsenal, Aston Villa closed the gap on Premier League leaders Liverpool to just two points.
Who would like to visit Villa Park? Aston Villa has won 12 of their 13 home games in all competitions so far this season; their only loss came against Everton in the EFL Cup third round.
Midweek saw Manchester City attempt to defeat 11 other teams. Leon Bailey scored the game’s lone goal as Aston Villa inflicted misery on Pep Guardiola’s club. Perhaps a blow to their chances of winning the title, more supporters went to Villa Park this weekend as Arsenal attempted to maintain their momentum and take the lead once again.

Arsenal had good cause to be hopeful. The Gunners were the last team in the Premier League to defeat Aston Villa at Villa Park; the Villans went on to win their following 14 home games.
However, spurred up by their victory over Manchester City, Aston Villa got off to a quick start and led 1-0 after just seven minutes. The goal was expertly executed from the midfield by John McGinn, Youri Tielemans, and Boubacar Kamara.
After Kamara got possession of the ball from a distance, Tielemans played it to Leon Bailey. Following his victory at Man City, the Jamaican advanced the defender to the byline before deftly cutting the ball back to McGinn, whose touch, pivot, and finish under Ben’s pressure were composed.

Aston Villa had history on their side, having won their previous 14 games when leading at halftime and being undefeated in their previous 20 when scoring the first goal. However, Arsenal had good cause to be confident. The previous time Aston Villa was unable to maintain a lead like that was when Arsenal defeated them 4-2 in February, owing to two goals in injury time.
“Well, it’s a fantastic location for football play. It’s very, very difficult for away teams to come and play when the fans are behind you like that, McGinn said to Sky Sports following the game.
“I recall that the manager informed us during the pre-game team meeting that Arsenal was the previous side to defeat us in this location.
