BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) Arsenal scored three goals in a four-minute span to beat Aston Villa 3-0 on Saturday and halt the host's good start to the Premier League season.

Mesut Ozil answered critics by scoring the first goal in the 32nd minute and then setting up Danny Welbeck two minutes later for the former Manchester United striker's first goal for Arsenal.

The third came shortly afterward, when Kieran Gibbs' low cross into the area was turned into the net by Villa defender Aly Cissokho as the hosts' resistance collapsed.
