Aston Villa two-goal hero Watkins: I'm an Arsenal fan!

Aston Villa star Ollie Watkins admitted he's an Arsenal supporter after scoring a brace against the Gunners on Sunday.

The summer signing was on fire as Villa secured a 3-0 win at the Emirates.

But not everybody in the Watkins family would have been happy with the result

"I'm not sure my grandad or uncle Baz are going to be too happy!" Watkins told Sky Sports after the game.

"They are Arsenal fans and I am an Arsenal fan myself - but I'm buzzing. I am sure they will love it really. I am over the moon."
