Arsenal finally managed to beat Astonvilla at the third time of asking, after failing to beat them twice during the previous season.
In truth, Arsenal were outstanding from the start of the game, with their relentless high pressing causing Astonvilla problems.
Hence, Villa were unable to get out of their own half, during a first half performance that was largely dominated by Arsenal, who scored two goals.
Martinez is popular for playing mind games when penalties are given to teams playing against Astonvilla.
Hence, against Arsenal, he was almost involved in a fight with Laccazete as he tried to use mind games and save Arsenal's penalty.
However, when Aubameyang stepped up to take the penalty, the goalkeeper's mind games, seemed to have worked for a second as he was able to save the penalty.
However, instead of putting the ball behind for a corner, Martinez returned the ball to Aubameyang, who scored an easy rebound.
A distraught Martinez fell to the floor in disbelief as Aubameyang rushed to celebrate with his teammates.
After full time, Martinez was also in tears, as Aubameyang moved to console the former goalkeeper during his interview. Here are some reactions from Arsenal fans.
