Just when Arsenal fans thought the club have settled its grouse with inconsistency, the latter, tonight, showed up at the Emirate Stadium.
Aston Villa, in what can at least be described as a masterclass performance, totally outplayed and outclassed Mikel Arteta’s men in a 3 nil annihilation in front of their virtual fans.
Jack Grealish, with 5 assists and 4 goals in the league this season, put up a delightful performance on the night as he provided an assist for Ollie Watkins second goal on the night.
Arsenal, who suffered their fourth loss in the league this season were so atrocious on the night such that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failed to register a shot on target in the match.
Here are some of the key facts from the match;
- For the first time in the history of Aston Villa, they have now there consecutive away games in the league.
- Only Cheksea (5) have won more away games at the Emirates Stadium than Aston Villa(4)
- They are also the third team in Premier League history to win each of their first three away games in a season without conceding a goal, after Chelsea in 2005-06 and Manchester City in 2015-16.
- Arsenal have scored only nine goals in eight Premier League games so far this season; their fewest at this phase of a league campaign since 1998-99 (9 as well)
