Aston Villa 1 Arsenal 0: Gunners’ bubble bursts as Trezeguet’s rocket sends Villans on course for final day Great Escape

IT will not quite be the sort of great escape Nigel Pearson once pulled off at Leicester City.

Yet Aston Villa can see daylight in their own relegation jailbreak - and, if they make it, they will cause major embarrassment to the Watford owners who sacked Pearson on Sunday.

Villa are above the Hornets and out of the bottom three, their safety in their own hands after a dynamite strike from Egyptian wideman Trezeguet proved to be their safecracker here.

Trezeguet has hardly set the Premier League light since his £8.75million signing last summer - but he scored the goal that sent Villa to Wembley for the Carabao Cup Final and this first-half winner was an even more valuable strike.

Defeat West Ham on Sunday and Villa are safe, unless Watford can beat Arsenal by a greater margin.

A draw or even a defeat could see Dean Smith’s men through if Watford and Bournemouth fail to capitalise.
