Manchester City Lead Premier League As Arsenal Lose 2-0 To Aston Villa

Manchester City sit at the top of the English Premier League table after Arsenal lost their chance to go two points ahead of them.

Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes suffered a setback as Aston Villa scored twice in the closing stages of the match to boost their top four bid with a dramatic 2-0 win at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Leon Bailey found the net first, and Ollie Watkins doubled the lead as Aston Villa’s manager, Unai Emery, enjoyed a second win this season over the club that sacked him in 2019.
