One minute and 14 seconds, that is all it took for Ollie Watkins to open the scoring against Arsenal today in their Premier League encounter at Villa Park.
Dean Smith will be delighted to see the hunger from his players as Burkina-Faso international player Bertrand Traore battled to win the ball back in Arsenal’s third before setting Watkins up in front of goal with an outside of the boot pass.
The winger is well know for being a one legged played but he made it work on the right wing when he set up Ollie who benefitted from a luck deflection that bounced the ball past Matthew Ryan in Arsenal’s goal.
Will Aston Villa be able to hold onto this lead and extend their already 4 point lead over Arsenal in the League?
Mikel Arteta’s men have a lot of work to do to come back today and get a much needed three points.
