Final EPL Table After Today Match As Arsenal moves up to 9th on the League Standings

Gameweek 9 (Day 1) Started in a cool way as Goals from Thomas Partey, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Emile Smith Rowe ensured that Arsenal beat Aston 3-1 at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta made changes to the side that drew against Crystal Palace 2-2, with Alexander Lacazette, Lokonga and Tavares all starting.

Arsenal started the match on the front foot, with Mikel Arteta's side dominating play, creating chances and causing all sort of problems for Aston Villa defence.

The first real chance fell to the Gunners from a brilliant free-kick from Bukayo Saka whose ball found it way to Thomas Partey, but the Ghana international saw his effort hit the Crossbar.

Arsenal broke the deadlock on the 23rd minutes, after a brilliantly wipped in corner kick from Emile Smith Rowe, which was header in Thomas Partey to make it 1-0. Bukayo Saka could have doubled the lead minutes later, but he saw his effort turned behind for a corner by Emillano Martinez. Aston Villa lacked ideas going forward with Dean Smith's side not creating enough to trouble Aaron Ramsdale in Arsenal's goal.

Arsenal got a penalty on the stroke of half-time, after Matt Targett tripped Alexander Lacazette in the box, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang stepped up and converted to increase the lead.

The Gunners continued from where they stopped in the second half, with Emile Smith Rowe netting the third goal off an assist from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Jacob Ramsey scored a late consolation for Dean Smith's side, with this win Mikel Arteta's side moves up to 9th on the League Standings.
