Arsenal 4-0 Aston Villa: Gunners overtake Spurs in dramatic finale

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil

Arsenal crushed Aston Villa in their final league game of the season to overtake North London rivals Tottenham who suffered a shock 5-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United.

Germany international of Turkish origin Mesut Ozil provided an assist for the second goal setting up Olivier Giroud who bagged a hat-trick.

Ozil has now setup 19 goals in the league this season just one short of equalling the Premier League record of 20 set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Arsenal would have finished third had Tottenham even drawn but Newcastle who had already been relegated managed to beat Spurs.
