Aston villa, one step closer to the top of the premier league

Aston Villa edged closer to the Premier League summit by securing a 1-0 victory over Arsenal at home. Captain John McGinn's early seventh-minute strike secured the win, extending Villa's remarkable home league winning streak to a club-record 15 games. Arsenal, who had led the table before the weekend, faced a setback as they twice had goals disallowed, with Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz both ruled offside and penalized for handball, respectively. Former Arsenal boss Unai Emery celebrated the win over his successor, Mikel Arteta, who observed from the directors' box due to a one-match touchline ban. Villa's recent triumphs, including beating Manchester City, position them as legitimate contenders for the title this season, showcasing their prowess in executing Emery's tactics to befuddle some of the league's top teams.
