Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa

Football News

Arsenal's lack of depth was highlighted ahead of this game.

Fans were calling for Arsene Wenger to splash the cash before the big kick-off, but he rested their calls and went into their Premier League curtain-raiser with a threadbare squad low on confidence and form.

Aston Villa blew away their north London opponents and hit Wenger's men on the counter three times, recording an unlikely 3-1 away victory in the process.

Wenger has since spent upwards of £40 million to bring Mesut Ozil to the Emirates while Arsenal sit top of the Premier League table - amazing how things can change, isn't it?
