It was a roller-coaster afternoon for the Gunners as they extended their unbeaten run at Villa Park to 16 games. Arsenal finished their business in three minutes and 12 seconds.
As expected, Aston Villa would represent a stern test given their blistering opening league campaign. Villa dominated the opening exchanges and almost scored a goal from a free kick that saw Szczęsny pull a brilliant save.
However, when Arsenal struck they never stopped. Goals from Ozil, Welbeck and an own goal ensured a comfortable afternoon for the Gunners. Most importantly, the effect of Ozil behind the striker was evident given his excellent performance. He got a much needed goal and an assist to answer his critics.
New boy, Danny Welbeck also opened his account by scoring the second goal.
Well done Wenger boys. That was more like it. Better days ahead.
