Arsenal are back at the top of the table and shouting about it.
Arsenal had a frustrating weekend wait to reclaim their top spot in the Premier League, but made no mistakes in dispatching Aston Villa on Monday night.
It was a real team effort as the below table of clearances made by Arsenal players displays:
What had looked like a simple victory at half-time turned into a backs-to-the-wall effort late on due to Christian Benteke's 75th minute strike from close range.
It left Arsenal's players jubilant after the game, including Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who had made his first appearance off the bench in the closing stages since August - when the Gunners had lost 3-1 to to Villa.
Nice to get back on the pitch tonight, especially with a good 3 points. Had to dig deep second half, but we managed to see the game out #AFC— Alex Ox-Chamberlain (@Alex_OxChambo) January 13, 2014
A home game against Fulham beckons at the weekend, and with Aaron Ramsey tipped to return then, everything is looking very rosy right now for Arsenal indeed.
