We have been well-beaten by Aston Villa on a deeply disappointing evening at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Coming into the sport on the again of a morale-boosting win at Previous Trafford, hopes have been excessive however the guests instantly underlined their attacking intent when, simply seconds into the match, John McGinn swept the ball into the highest nook.
Villa celebrated wildly, however the resolution was checked by VAR – and the ‘objective’ dominated out as Ross Barkley was offside and adjudged to be impeding the view of Bernd Leno as McGinn struck the ball.
It was a serious let-off for us, however we struggled to impose ourselves for a lot of the primary half – though Willian blazed one effort over the bar after good work by Thomas Partey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Nevertheless it was the guests who took the lead when Matt Targett swept the ball throughout the face of objective and it was bundled in off the unlucky Bukayo Saka.
We responded positively and had a golden likelihood to equalise when Kieran Tierney’s pinpoint cross from the left picked out Alex Lacazette, however the ahead couldn’t hold his header down.
It was a disappointing finish to a disappointing half, however after the restart it was the guests who have been first to threaten once more, with Bernd Leno compelled to palm away Trezeguet’s shot.
Jack Grealish then got here near extending Villa’s benefit from shut vary, solely to see his curling effort deflected behind – earlier than Rob Holding fired large on the different finish.
Nicolas Pepe and Eddie Nketiah have been quickly thrown into the fray as we seemed for a method again into the sport, with the previous coming shut with a high-quality curling effort.
However Villa’s fluent attacking show was rewarded with a second objective when Douglas Luiz discovered Barkley on the again put up, and his volleyed cross was headed in by Ollie Watkins.
