Aston Villa has achieved a historic milestone with their 1-0 victory over Arsenal on Saturday, securing 15 wins in home league games for the first time in their history at Selhurst Park.
The only goal of the match came in the 7th minute, courtesy of Jack McGinn, who successfully found the net past Arsenal’s David Raya.
Throughout the first half, Villa effectively thwarted all attempts by Arsenal to equalize the scores.
Following their triumph over the league champions and their continued tenacity against Arsenal, Unai Emery’s Aston Villa appears to be on a path reminiscent of their glory days.
In a Premier League clash between Crystal Palace and Liverpool at Selhurst Park, Harvey Elliott propelled his team to the top spot after Mohamed Salah matched André Ayew’s 57th goal in a thrilling 3-goal match.
The contentious VAR penalty, converted by French football player Jean-Philippe Mateta, unexpectedly gave Palace the lead.
Additionally, Manchester United suffered a 0-3 defeat against Bournemouth, with goals from Dominic Solanke, Philip Billing, and Marcos Senesi, marking the visitors’ first-ever win at Old Trafford.
Conversely, Simon Adingra’s efforts prevented Vincent Kompany’s side from securing a crucial victory, resulting in a 1-1 draw between Brighton and Burnley at the American Express Community Stadium.
Meanwhile, at Bramall Lane, Chris Wilder secured his first win in his second spell in charge of the Blades, thanks to James McAtee’s goal in Sheffield United’s 1-0 victory against Brentford.
Furthermore, Matheus Cunha of Wolves ensured his team shared points with Nottingham Forest at Molineux Stadium.
