Arsenal 1-3 Villa MOTM: Select top star after Arsenal win


It's time to select your man-of-the-match after the terrific 3-1 win at Arsenal.

It was truly an afternoon to remember as Villa left the capital with all three points following a thrilling opening day of the campaign.

Pick your top star now.

Christian Benteke was again in top-class form, scoring two and leading the line brilliantly.

Gabby Agbonlahor was at his very, very best, winning two penalties and generally causing total mayhem in the Gunners backline.

Ron Vlaar and Ciaran Clark marshalled the troops at the back wonderfully, with special mention for Clark who was an early sub and didn't let the occasion ruffle him in any way.

Fabian Delph showed brilliance going forward and tracking back, Karim El Ahmadi did much the same while Ashley Westwood kept the ball moving quickly in the central ground.

Antonio Luna was over the moon after scoring his debut goal for the club and he kept England winger Theo Walcott for the whole match.

Brad Guzan carried on his form from the previous campaign, making two world-class saves after the break.

Remember the voting goes towards the end of season Terrace Trophy award, sponsored by Mars.

Past recipients include Stan Petrov, Gareth Barry, James Milner and Dennis Mortimer.

Pick your top star now.
