Aston Villa 2-4 Arsenal: Four star Gunners earn impressive away victory despite Ciaran Clark heroics

Arsenal kept the pressure on at the top of the Premier League table with an impressive 4-2 victory at Aston Villa.

Andrey Arshavin gave the away side the lead after a classy dribble and shot before Samir Nasri netted a second prior to the break.

But youngster Ciaran Clark pulled one back for Villa minutes into the second half with a sweetly struck half volley only to see the two-goal deficit restored as Marouane Chamakh expertly slid the ball beneath Brad Friedel. Clark then again pulled one back, this time with a header that bounced just over the line.
