Arsenal End Winless Premier League Run With Spirited Comeback

North London giants Arsenal are back to winning ways in the Premier League after they produced a spirited comeback against Aston Villa earlier on Sunday.

The Gunners had to fight back to win the league game at home to newly promoted team Aston Villa despite playing 50 minutes with ten men.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles was sent off during the first half of the Premier League game with Aston Villa after collecting two yellow cards.

Aston Villa had taken a first half lead through John McGinn before the Gunners were reduced to ten men.

It was the second goal of the new Premier League season for John McGinn.

Arsenal equalized through summer signing Nicholas Pepe from the penalty spot after the impressive Matteo Guendouzi was brought down in the Aston Villa box.

The Gunners conceded almost immediately after that equalizer from Pepe through Aston Villa striker Wesley off an assist from captain Jack Grealish.

Arsenal were heading for a defeat until they scored two late goals through substitute Calum Chambers and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Gabonese international Aubameyang scored the winning goal from a direct freekick for his sixth league goal of the season.

Arsenal had not won a league game in three outings before the Villa game.
