A "warrior" display from Matteo Guendouzi helped Arsenal beat Aston Villa 3-2 and earned the midfielder a place in Alan Shearer's Team of the Week from the sixth round of matches.

An ever-present for Unai Emery's side this season, Guendouzi was a powerhouse as Arsenal twice came from behind, and with a man down, to seal a dramatic late win.
