LONDON: Mesut Ozil scored a goal and created another in Arsenal's emphatic 5-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday as the London club earned its biggest Premier League win this season.

Olivier Giroud put the home side ahead in the eighth minute after a sublime backheel pass from Ozil sent the striker through on goal.

Ozil doubled Arsenal's lead in the 56th, slotting the ball into the low right corner in the midfielder's first league start since returning from injury.

Theo Walcott added a third and his first league goal of the season after exchanging passes with Santi Cazorla before firing inside the far post. Cazorla converted a penalty after substitute Chuba Akpom was fouled by Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Hector Bellerin scored a fifth in added time.
