Opinion: 3 Right Decisions Mikel Arteta Made That Helped Arsenal Win The Game Against Aston Villa

Prior to today's game, Arsenal FC had lost its previous three (3) matches against Aston Villa by an aggregate score of 5-0 goals. In their match against Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night, Arsenal FC came out on top. Arsenal FC were able to score two goals before the end of the first half thanks to their outstanding performance from the very start of the game by their players. At least Thomas Partey scored his first goal for the club, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his seventh (7th) goal of the season across all competitions.

First and foremost, Mikel Arteta avoided pairing Martin Odegaard and Nicolas Pepe with Emile Smith Rowe in the Arsenal's attacking line, as did the rest of the team. Emile Smith Rowe was a free agent who played a supporting role on the football field. This player was very impressive. He had excellent ball control and completed more passes than any other Gunners' player.

Furthermore, due to an ankle injury, Kierney was unable to participate in the game, allowing Nuno Tavares the opportunity to play on the left wing of the team. There's nothing better than putting Nuno Tavares ahead of Cedric Soares and Saed Kolasinac on the ice. In spite of his lack of coordination, his confidence and movement with the ball in his hands are outstanding.

Similarly, Mikel Arteta started Alexander Lacazette at the top of the lineup. The presence of the Frenchman injected new life into Arsenal FC's attacking line, prompting even the club's captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, to step up his performance. At least two of the Aston Villa defenders were put under threat by Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Alexander Lacazette.

After accumulating fourteen (14) points, Arsenal FC has moved up to the ninth (9th) position in the Premier League table. Who do you think will be the Man of the Match? Please leave a comment in the section below.
