Arsenal exhibited what most gooners would term as the best performance of the season, not only because they sent five past Aston Villa keeper Brad Guzan, but because they were blooming with cohesiveness and intent.
Olivier Giroud scored the only goal of the first half in the 8th minute when he finished Mesut Ozil’s clever flick to give Arsene Wenger’s side the lead.
Then came the hammering in the second half with goals from Ozil, Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and an impressive Hector Bellerin, who netted for the first time in Arsenal colours.
With five different goal scorers and three more points in the bag, the Gunners are slowly creeping back into the top four.

Coqulin exuded so much confidence today. Really excited to have him center of the park. Big derby next week at White Hart Lane. #coyg

Great win today!⚽️
A 5-0 win is particularly special when five different Gunners score! And amazingly @Alexis_Sanchez isn't one of them
Superb performance. Ozil my MoM. Bring on the Spuds. #afc
