MARTIN ODEGAARD put in a contender for miss of the season against Aston Villa – but luckily it didn't come back to bite the Gunners.
Mikel Arteta's side netted twice in stoppage time to secure a stunning 4-2 win.

The chance came when Eddie Nketiah dispossessed Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa inside the box.

But the playmaker somehow dragged his effort wide of the mark completely.
