Calum Chambers hailed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after he and the Arsenal striker inspired a remarkable comeback against Aston Villa.

Down to ten men, Arsenal staged a fightback from 2-1 down in the final ten minutes to snatch all three points for the Gunners.

Chambers kicked things off in the 81st minute, before Aubameyang popped up three minutes later to score a thrilling winner.

Aubameyang has scored 16 goals in his last 16 appearances and Chambers was full of praise for his striker.

‘He is a quality striker,’ he said. ‘A lot of the players in this team have quality but to have him scoring goals is great for us.’

‘I am very pleased,’ he continued. ‘I hold my hand up to their second goal so I had to put things right.

‘We stuck in there and worked hard and deserved it in the end.

‘The win is massive for us as a club and team, We have the quality and the spirit.

‘We dug in deep to get the momentum going.’

Arsenal had a mountain to climb in the final half hour at the Emirates when Wesley put Villa back in front – just 89 seconds after Nicolas Pepe had equalised from the spot for Arsenal.
