Before making the move to Atletico Madrid, David Villa was a reported target for both Arsenal and Tottenham. 

And the north London duo may certainly feel they have missed a bargain after Villa's quite sensational debut strike for his new club. 

The Spanish international struck a bullet from 25-yards out and saw the ball fly into the top corner of the net. 

The ex-Barcelona man has certainly not lost his magic touch and has given the Atletico faithful a little taster of what's to come. 

For Arsenal and Spurs, they may rue their missed opportunity to bring the Spanish star to England.
