’s late corner. Martinelli managed to score Arsenal’s fourth goal as Martinez was caught out of his goal. Villa boss Unai Emery left furious with Martinez who went against his order in going forward.  

Emery was not happy with his goalkeeper's decision, however he told talkSPORT: “

Our game plan is, of course, quality really and on the pitch they have to take the decision. He decided in the last action to go to the corner offensively, but I don’t like it.

"But I told him nothing, before or after because in all my career I have never told our goalkeepers to do it and the statistical data is going against the teams that are going with the goalkeeper more than scoring any goals."

Martinez, who spent years at


, didn’t have a particularly good game as he scored an own goal on Arsenal’s third. Martinez wasted minutes of the game when Aston Villa was 2-1 leading the match and those minutes as well as his poor individual mistakes cost Aston Villa the match.

The Gunners now go on top, two points clear of Manchester City who drew their game against Nottingham Forest.
