Aston Villa defeated London's Arsenal today in the 16th round of the English Premier League. This victory became a record for the club, marking their 15th consecutive home win in the Premier League.

The statistical portal Opta notes that Unai Emery has become the fifth manager to win 15 consecutive home matches in the Premier League. Prior to this, such an achievement was reached by Ferguson, Mancini, Klopp, and Guardiola. Interestingly, all four led their teams to a championship title.

Moreover, Aston Villa has earned 35 or more points after the initial 16 games for the fifth time in their history in the top-flight division. In three of the previous four instances, Aston Villa became the champions of England.

In the last round, Aston Villa triumphed over Manchester City, and now they've overcome Arsenal. This makes Villa the fourth team in Premier League history to defeat two of the previous season's strongest teams in consecutive matches. Previously, Liverpool achieved this in December 2000, Southampton in May 2001, and Manchester United in December 2002.
