[Video Goals] Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa: Horror Show For 10-Man Arsenal
10-man Arsenal put in a horror show as they lost 3-1 to Aston Villa at the Emirates on the opening day of the season. Watch highlights with all the goals here:
It was a nightmare start to the season for Arsenal as they gave away two penalties and had Laurent Koscielny sent off as Aston Villa ran out 3-1 winners at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts got off to the perfect start when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was released down the left and found Olivier Giroud who swept home for 1-0 inside 6 minutes. The visitors had the chance to draw level when Szczesny hauled down Agbonlahor in the area. Benteke saw his spot kick saved but he was on hard to head home the rebound for 1-1.
Then came the turning point in the game when Cazorla gifted possession to Villa and Koscielny was adjudged to have brought down Agbonlahor as he burst into the box. However, replays showed the Frenchman got a touch on the ball. Benteke made no mistake to make it 2-1 and Arsenal’s task got even harder when Koscielny was sent off for a second bookable offence shortly after. Villa added a late third as they broke from an Arsenal corner.
