It is no exaggeration to say that Arsenal were really under pressure to produce something at Aston Villa today, with a woeful display in Dortmund meaning that Arsene Wenger and a large number of his players coming in for some fierce criticism from us fans and the football media in general. But it should be [.
Aston Villa 0-3 Arsenal Premier League 20th September 2014
Arsenal bounced back from their 2-0 Dortmund defeat by comfortably outclassing Aston Villa on Saturday.
Mesut Ozil, a player who has been the subject of much criticism this season, finally produced a performance worthy of his talent with the German scoring the opener before setting up Danny Welbeck to open his own Gunners' account.

Brad Guzan and Aston Villa are enjoying a dream start to their English Premier League season, and the Villans sit in second place in the league through four matches. Led by Guzan's play in goal, and an improved defense that has allowed just one goal so far this season, Aston Villa are riding high after beating Liverpool last week.
Well, the fans have giving the team a good kicking this week, we can only hope they pass it on to Aston Villa this afternoon.
We are always unlucky about meeting a team as they are in good from and today is no exception. Given last season's miserable performances it was more likely that Lambert would be sacked rather than make his young team into the formidable opponents they will be post kick-off.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has launched an impassioned defence of under-fire midfielder Mesut Ozil, insisting that the German World Cup winner should not be used as a "scapegoat" for Arsenal's 2-0 Champions League defeat away to Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.
Aston Villa 0 – 3 Arsenal Player Ratings by KJ Szczesny – 7 He didn't have much to do all game except for a very smart save in the first half. Chambers – 7.5 I felt he was pretty good today and he's so composed on the ball. If only we'd brought in another centre [...]
Well it was a much better start from Arsenal. As expected, Aston Villa started with a high tempo and tried to put us under serious pressure, which paid such dividends for Borussia Dortmund in the week. But the Arsenal players did not crumble under it this time and managed to pass and play our way [..
It is never nice to lose a game of football, and Arsenal fans are desperate for the Gunners not to lose this one today at Aston Villa. But the manner of a defeat, or a disappointing draw, is often as important to the fans. If you play badly and win, nobody really cares and people [...]
Aston Villa vs Arsenal Preview, Line up and predicted score by KJ Arsenal have had a very rough start to the season, with only one win in the league and being completely outclassed by Dortmund on Tuesday. The fans are looking for a response by the players and Villa away is a good opportunity regardless [.
In response to Mike Phelan's claims that Manchester United had "lost their way" following the sale of Danny Welbeck, Jason Burt wrote for The Telegraph about United's history of youth team players. He claimed "it is a myth that United have always had a team overbrimming with local players and youth team products".
Arsene Wenger has made three changes to the Arsenal starting line-up for the away clash with Aston Villa. But they are not the changes that a lot of us may have expected, because two of the players that have been dropped from the starting XI, Jack Wilshere and Alexis Sanchez, have been arguably our best [.
It is not good news for Arsenal on the injury front by any means, with Arsene Wenger already having to cope with plenty of missing players already this season, but it could definitely have been worse. I certainly feared the worst after all the Arsenal players that missed the Champions League defeat in Germany on [.
When Arsenal signed Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid last summer, it was enough to convince Jose Mourinho to pull the plug on the deal that was in place for us to loan Demba Ba from Chelsea. His former manager from Real Madrid called Ozil the best number 10 in the world, but these days people [...]
Arsene Wenger has a big tactical decision to make as Arsenal prepare to travel to Birmingham to face Aston Villa. The Gunners desperately need a morale boosting wing after what happened in Germany on Tuesday, but another defeat would leave us well adrift of the league leaders and even shorter on confidence.
Arsenal fans may have had a bit more to shout about int the transfer market over the last year or so, but at the end of each window, us fans and the football media are still left scratching our heads as to why Arsene Wenger did not sign, for instance, a striker or a defensive [...]
The Arsenal manager has spoken out once again to offer an explanation about why Mesut Ozil is not firing on all cylinders and to defend him against what the Frenchman sees as unfair criticism of his number 11, as a report by Arsenal.com reveals. The Prof clearly feels that Ozil needs a bit of time [.
Why not try this? by Gunnerjack I know what follows is very experimental and could cost us but I think we've got to try something to get out of our present slump. I think the following starting lineup (if all players fit) would do 3 things: 1) score goals and not concede easily 2) have [...]
A Great British morning to you all. For as the sun rose over misty loch and dewy dale, these kingdoms are well and truly united once more. By an overwhelming majority of 54% to 46%, Scotland has voted to stay under the yoke of the British Empire. This was the correct decision; we wouldn't have wanted to send in the troops once more to suppress these primitive notions of ‘independence'.
