Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins executes counterattack to perfection to dent Arsenal title hopes (Video)

After Liverpool slipping up in their last two matches, Arsenal were in control of the Premier League title race going into their clash at home against Aston Villa. The Gunners obviously needed to win to stay ahead of Manchester City, who had beaten Luton Town comprehensively some 24 hours before, but Villa shocked the Emirates Stadium with Leon Bailey breaking the deadlock in the 84th minute.

With no time to lose, Arsenal rushed forward in search of an equalizer, but only three minutes later, their misery was complete as Ollie Watkins used pace and audacity to score this fine goal and set the final score at 0-2.

In a span of one week, the pole position in the title race has gone from Liverpool to Arsenal to Manchester City.
