Two Jack Wilshere-inspired goals in the space of a minute won Arsenal the game in their Premier League dust-up with Aston Villa.

The Gooner firstly tucked away Nacho Monreal’s pass with aplomb in the 35th minute, moments before turning provider for Oliver Giroud.

The away team took the foot of the gas in the second half, allowing Christian Benteke to score his first Premier League goal in 14 hours and 45 minutes with a spectacular diving header. However, the Villain’s couldn’t capitalise on their late surge, leaving Arsenal 2-1 victors.

The three points mean Arsene Wenger’s team sit proudly on top of the table.
