While we're on the subject of Havertz, I didn't realise how big he is. He was on a par with Torres and Martinez. Yet somehow he gives the impression of being a little lightweight like Gil at Spurs. Weird.

I just want to add; this nonsense from Arsenal fans about us being over physical, it was Havertz that went out to deliberately hurt someone with that challenge at the end of Martinez. He went to leave one on him.

And with Havertz being Havertz he still missed.

Beating Arsenal has given me far more satisfaction than beating Ci£y and I never expected that . Thanks mostly to their manager and fans pathetic whinging since the final whistle blew.

It's a point well made.

That's some major straw clutching right there from AFTV

Has anyone else noticed how Bailey has increased the use of his right foot. This is one of the reasons he is having so much success as defenders cannot read him now.

Went on the Villa Park tour early this afternoon with Olof's Beard and the away dressing room still had a flip-chart page from Arsenal's analysis of the Villa team, up from Saturday evening. Note how their coaching staff circle our left-footed players. I imagine this is to remind the Arsenal players to try and force these players onto their weaker (right) foot when possible. Luckily, Leon doesn't seem to have one at the moment!

Also, a nice touch that the opposition has to type in Sid's name to get wifi on their mobiles  ;)

Yeah I also mentioned this a while back, that he seems to be much more willing to attempt crosses and such with his right - it looks like now he’s starting to see the payoff for it.

Enjoy. The bitterness has an extra dose of salt.

Thanks. Enjoyed that, love it when opposition fans are genuinely irritated.

What a fucking rubbish channel that is.

I hate that 'dub' / 'big W' / 'bossman' host bloke. A Twitter celebrity, fuck off.

Why are they so pissed off about losing to us? Or are they like this every time they lose?

Did you tie it into the lesson plan or was it just like “this is great, watch this!”

Same team, win the toss, attack the Holte and get a fast start and then give it everything to defend from there and Unai manages the legs and the minutes. Beautifully done
