Aston Villa 1-0 Arsenal

11 minutes: Disabled! Jorginho passes the ball across the middle of the court and then plays Ben White from the right side of the penalty area.

White touches the ball, then passes it over Emi Martinez, and it looks like he threw an equalizer only for Tyrone Mings to run back and lift the ball to the crossbar that was bouncing from behind!

Aston Villa 0-0 Arsenal

3 min: Aston Villa’s first foray into Arsenal’s half saw Philippe Coutinho knock the ball off the left flank before swiping it at Douglas Luiz.

He’s miles from the target, but he has room to shoot, and he’s doing it. Unsurprisingly, the effort spreads over a fairly wide part of the right post.
