Late Arsenal surge against Villa secures return to winning form

Arsenal snatched a dramatic 4-2 victory over Aston Villa with two goals in second-half injury time at Villa Park on Sunday.

The Gunners appeared set for another disappointing result after Villa took the lead early through Ollie Watkins and then regained the lead just after the half-hour mark via Philippe Coutinho. However, Arsenal battled back to level through Bukayo Saka and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

As Arsenal struck twice at the death with the game drifting towards a draw. First, Jorginho’s speculative effort deflected off Villa keeper Emi Martinez and into the net in the 93rd minute. Then, with virtually the last kick of the game, Gabriel Martinelli raced clear to score Arsenal’s fourth after Martinez had gone up for a Villa corner.

The win is a timely boost for Arsenal and manager Mikel Arteta after drawing with Brentford and losing to Manchester City in their previous two matches. The three points lift Arsenal up to fifth in the Premier League table, while Villa remain 11th.

My rewrite removes unnecessary words and sentences, reorders some sentences, uses active voice, and condenses multiple events into single sentences to improve the flow and clarity of the article. The key details around goals, timing, and implications are retained but more concisely.
