John McGinn sends Arsenal warning as Villa look to ‘avenge’ Wolves collapse

Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn has said the side are out to ‘avenge’ their ‘poor 10 minutes’ against Wolverhampton Wanderers when they face Arsenal on Friday night.

The 27-year-old crossed for Danny Ings ‘ headed opener and scored the second himself with a deflected strike from distance, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Wolves ‘ late rally that stole all three points from Villa Park.

Dean Smith ‘s side are looking to channel the memories of the last time they faced Arsenal on their own patch when, despite the Scotland international’s early disallowed goal, they ran out 3-0 winners thanks to a second-half Ollie Watkins brace.

Reflecting on more recent form, though, McGinn struck a considered tone.

“We’ve had some good results, but also some disappointing ones, like the weekend,” he told Sky Sports. “It’s about getting the consistency with a lot of young players in the team.

“We’re going to have ups and downs, and it’s going to take its time to gel, but I feel like we’re showing we’re capable of getting big results, and when we have defeats like the weekend, the games don’t get easier.

“We’ve got a tough game on Friday where we can go and try to avenge what was a poor 10 minutes.”

“We’re expecting a tough game. I know it was a disappointing result for Arsenal on Monday, but they’ve been on a good run of form.

“They’ve got the majority of their players fit and firing, which we haven’t had at the moment,” he added.

“It’s always a tough game to go to the Emirates, they play fast, free-flowing football, but you know you will get chances, and it’s up to you to try and take them.

“We’ll be working hard on how we can get chances on Friday, and it’s about being clinical when we get them.”
