Arsenal 3-2 Aston Villa: Aubameyang completes comeback for 10-man Gunners [Tweets]

Ten-man Arsenal came from behind to beat Aston Villa at the Emirates with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting yet another winner for the Gunners.

Arsenal had to yet again rely on the brilliance of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to get them three points against Aston Villa. While Aubameyang might have come up with the eventual winner, a brilliant second-half performance from the entire team deserves credit. They scored three goals in this period and that too with ten-men on the pitch.

Arsenal were pegged behind in the first half after John McGinn gave Aston Villa a shock lead. Things looked bleak after Ainsley Maitland-Niles was sent off for two bookable offences, reducing Arsenal to ten men. The Gunners eventually found their equaliser through a Nicolas Pepe penalty early in the second half, but Villa restored their lead in under 90 seconds after that.

Calum Chambers and Aubameyang then helped the team turn around the game and give Arsenal an unlikely win over Villa, collecting all three points. Twitter were cautious enough with this game that saw too many lapses in the first period and then their joy erupted at the scenes at the Emirates. Emery was again criticised, but there were praises for the team and Aubameyang in particular.

Here’s how Twitter reacted.

First up, like last weekend, the whole focus was on Emery after a dreadful first-half performance from his team. Again the defence and Emery’s ideas at the back were heavily scrutinized. Arsenal during this period were a goal and a man down to newly-promoted Villa and fans were not kind to the Spanish manager.

Then followed by tweets dedicated to match-winner Aubameyang. The fans really love him, and he has given them a big reason for that today.

Finally, we end with some tweets that reflected on Arsenal’s display on the night. The focus, however, remained over the sloppiness of Arsenal’s overall game.
