Thanks for joining me, and make sure to stay tuned to Bleacher Report for the fallout from this, and the other EPL games taking place today.

The few Arsenal fans who remain jeer.

Villa sub Leandro Bacuna takes a shot from a tight angle to rolls wide of goal.

Arsenal have had 15 goal attempts to Aston Villa's 10 this afternoon.
88'- It is curtains for Arsenal, who have failed to deliver in this second half.
A large degree of blame will be placed on the referee, but the Gunners simply weren't good enough.

Referee Taylor correctly waves play on.

There will be plenty of boos for referee Anthony Taylor from the home fans when the final whistle blows.

If there was pressure on Wenger to make a big-money signing before the game started, it will be ten-fold if Arsenal lose today.
75'- Villa playing the ball around comfortably in the Gunners' half. Arsenal looking fatigued at the moment.
15 minutes for the Gunners to grab at least an equaliser.
73'- Arsene Wenger and Steve Bould look non-plussed on the sidelines. A terrible start to the Premier League season for the Gunners.
