Lineker, Wright and more: Twitter reacts as Arsenal beat Aston Villa
Gary Lineker and Ian Wright lead the Twitter reaction as Arsenal ease to a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa
Arsenal moved to the top of the Premier League table after a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.
France international Olivier Giroud scored his fifth goal in three games in all competitions to break the deadlock from the penalty spot in the first half.
Aaron Ramsey also continued his fine goal-scoring return to Premier League action following a recent injury after a close-range finish before half-time.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to a comfortable victory for Arsenal.
Piers Morgan is fully behind Arsene Wenger (for now) after Giroud broke the deadlock at Villa Park:
REMINDER: I've suspended my #WengerOut campaign until end of the season. But minor Wenger moaning will be unavoidable.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright his singing Giroud’s praises after the Frenchman’s latest goal:

Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker goes fishing for Twitter trolls with a trademark wind-up tweet:
Terrific from Arsenal. A rare assist from özil.

Ex-Stoke defender Danny Higginbotham, Stan Collymore and Newcastle legend Micky Quinn all fear for hapless Villa:
Fear for Villa. At the bottom you have to roll your sleeves up and scrap your way out. Villa have a few scrappers but not enough at moment
