Aston Villa secured a 1-0 victory against Arsenal, breaking a 90-year record winning their first eight home matches in a top-flight since 1932/33.
The win sees Villa trailing just two points behind Premier League leaders, Liverpool, and one point behind Arsenal in second place.
The deadlock was broken with an early seventh-minute goal from John McGinn, ensuring Villa took all three points.
Emery’s side have now established itself as a formidable force in the Premier League, with notable victories against Chelsea, Tottenham, and Manchester City.
Arsenal, last season’s runners-up, struggled to penetrate Villa’s tough defense.
Mikel Arteta who was absent from the touchline due to a touchline ban, was frustrated watching as his team succumbed to their second top-flight defeat of the season.
