Arsenal 0-2 Aston Villa Highlights
Aston Villa struck twice in the last 20 minutes to seal a deserved win and dent Arsenal’s Premier League title hopes.
Gael Clichy headed Ashley Young’s cross into his own net after 70 minutes and Gabriel Agbonlahor raced clear to add a second 10 minutes later.
Young had seen a penalty saved by Manuel Almunia in the first half as Villa produced an outstanding display.
Brad Friedel saved well from Cesc Fabregas in the first half and Emmanuel Adebayor hit a post late on.
For Villa, the win will strengthen their belief that they can challenge for a top four place this season, but the result will be massively frustrating for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
After watching his side respond to criticism by beating Manchester United at the Emirates last Saturday, Wenger watched his side undo all that good work against a Villa side who played with huge self-belief and attacking intent.
