BIRMINGHAM, England(AP) Yossi Benayoun scored his first Premier League goal for Arsenal on Wednesday, striking with three minutes left to earn the Gunners a 2-1 win at Aston Villa.
Villa seemed to have earned a point when Marcus Albrighton equalized Robin van Persie's 17th-minute penalty with the 20,000th goal since the Premier League began in August 1992.
But on-loan Chelsea midfielder Benayoun headed in Van Persie's corner to secure Arsenal's eighth win from 10 matches.
