Misfiring Arsenal reach 22-year low after another blank against Aston Villa

 The Gunners once again struggled in front of goal against Dean Smith's side to equal an unwanted milestone

Arsenal’s failure to hit the back of the net in Sunday's defeat against Aston Villa means they have now scored their fewest amount of goals at this stage of the season for 22 years.

A double from Ollie Watkins and a Buyako Saka own goal earned all three points for Villa at Emirates Stadium, with the Gunners failing to score for the third time in four Premier League matches.

It means Mikel Arteta’s side have now scored just nine goals in eight Premier League games this season; their fewest at this stage of a league campaign since 1998-99. It was also their worst home league defeat since a 3-0 loss against Manchester City in December 2019.
