Arsenal 3-0 Aston Villa

Arsenal win at Villa park beating their opponents through goals from Mesut Ozil in the 32nd minute, Danny Welbeck in the 34th, and an own goal by Aly Cossokho in the 36th minute. This ends the host’s unbeaten start to the season. Wenger:

We had a good work-rate and concentration from the start. We had a very good first half when we were in control and dominated the game. They [Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil] combined very well, especially in the first half. Our plan today was to play Mesut behind their midfield and it worked.

Aston Villa 2-1 Hull City

Aston VillaAston villa move up to third place in the Premier League after a win over Hull City. Gabby Agbonlahor puts villa ahead in the 12th minute with a strike in the bottom corner of the goal and Andreas Weimann follows in with the second on 36 minutes from Kieran Richardson’s pass after Hull’s Debutant Micheal Dawson gives the ball away. Hull improve after the break and Nikica Jelavic pulls a goal back in the 74th minute. Bruce:

We gifted them goals, we made mistake after mistake, we didn’t get above a jog, so how do you expect to win a Premier League game? It’s a shock to me. But maybe it’s a wake-up call. We can’t wait for me to be ranting and raving like a lunatic at half-time. If we hadn’t woken up, it would’ve been a cricket score.

This is a massive club and there is massive opportunity for the club to move on. I have been lucky to have a really good career but there is a lot more to achieve

Aston Villa 0-0 Newcastle

castleThe visitors are let down by poor finishing. Magpies debutant Siem De Jong gets a chance to win it for his side but fails to score. Before he is sent off, defender Mike Williamson hits an air shot from Remy Cabella’s looping pass. Pardew’s wait for the first premier league goal still goes on but is encouraged by impressive cameo. Emmanuel Riviera registers Magpies first on target effort of the season but Brad Guzan easily stops it.Meanwhile Villa go closest through impressive winger Charles N’zogbia who curls a free kick narrowly wide against his former club. Lambert:

I think a few years ago Aston Villa struggled with experienced players. It’s tough, the league is tough but the start we have been made has been really good

Pardew:

It’s a great start for us after everybody was doom and gloom about the football club towards the end of last season, we’ve certainly took that challenge on.
