Bukayo Saka’s first half goal was enough to secure a 1-0 win for Arsenal at Villa Park this afternoon.
The England international struck the only goal of the game in the 30th minute, firing through a sea of legs beyond former teammate Emi Martinez.
It was tough going at times, and late on Bernd Leno saved a Coutinho free kick to ensure that the cleans sheet and the three points came back to North London.
Here’s how the players rated this afternoon.
