Arsenal scored twice in stoppage time, as they rebounded amazingly and won 4-2 at Aston Villa and topped the English Premier League on Saturday.
Arsenal came back from behind twice, drew 2-2 and looked set to fail to win a fourth successive league match.
But Jorginho, who joined from Chelsea in the winter transfer period, fired a powerful shot that hit the goal frame, then Emiliano Martinez, Villa goalkeeper, and entered the goal.
In the last attack, goalkeeper Martinez advanced to try to compensate for a corner kick, but the ball rebounded with a quick counterattack, and substitute Gabriel Martinelli scored the fourth goal to secure Arsenal’s victory.
Ollie Watkins and Philippe Coutinho scored Aston Villa’s goals, and Arsenal equalized on both occasions through Bukayo Saka and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Arsenal’s balance became 54 points from 23 matches, three points behind Manchester City, the defending champion, who fought the same number, while Villa’s balance froze at 28 points in 11th place and lost for the third consecutive match.
