Sanchez, Ozil and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal thrash Villa

Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both tweet their thoughts as Arsenal thrash Aston Villa 5-0 at Emirates Stadium

Arsenal recorded their biggest victory in two-and-a-half years as they romped to a 5-0 win over Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Arsene Wenger’s men dominated proceedings and took the lead when Olivier Giroud netted in the eighth minute at Emirates Stadium.

Cool finishes from Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott in the second half made it 3-0, before Santi Cazorla scored a penalty and Hector Bellerin added further gloss to the scoreline with a side-footed effort.

Sunday’s big game prompted plenty of activity on Twitter – and here are some of our favourite updates.

Man of the match Mesut Ozil (@MesutOzil1088) keeps it short and sweet: “#YaGunnersYa … Oh jaa…”

Injured Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy (@MatDebuchy) praises his team-mates: “Great win guys ! Well done”

Hector Bellerin (@HectorBellerin) could not hide his delight after getting on the score-sheet: “What a feeling to get my first goal for @Arsenal!! Great team performance to make it the perfect day! #COYG”

Star man Alexis Sanchez (@Alexis_Sanchez), who missed the game with a hamstring problem, is both happy and sad: “Happy for the great win of the Team…sad for not being at the field..”

Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) is impressed: “Superb performance. Ozil my MoM. Bring on the Spuds. #afc”

Mark Bright (@Mark__Bright) is surprised by the margin of victory: “Believe it or not, before this game kicked off #AstonVilla had the 5th tightest defense in the @premierleague.”

Michael Owen (@themichaelowen) is impressed by the Gunners’ display, and without Sanchez: “Authoritative performance from Arsenal and that’s without their star man.”

And that just leaves Darren Huckerby (@hucks6dh6) to have the final say: “Arsenal have been good but Villa are woeful ! #Pusb”
