Arsenal got their Premier League season off to a terrible start as they went down 3-1 at home to Aston Villa on Saturday.
Olivier Giroud had put the Gunners ahead just six minutes into the game before a double from Christian Benteke and a goal from Antonio Luna turned the game around.
The Gunners also had to see out the end of the game with 10 men after Laurent Koscielny received his marching orders for two silly challenges in quick succession.
Arsene Wenger boasted the same crop of players he had last season, with the Frenchman signing just one young striker in Yaya Sanogo so far, despite declarations that the club has money to burn. On top of that the Gunners saw a number of first-team players from last season depart.
The supporters were given some hope just six minutes in though as Giroud opened the scoring with a neat finish after being found by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The visitors suffered another blow 10 minutes later as Nathan Baker came off injured, but things would soon turn around for Villa.
Gabriel Agbonlahor went on a driving run before being brought down in the area and although Benteke's penalty was saved, it looped up for the forward to nod home on the rebound.
The goal boosted the visitors who were playing with purpose and after the break the referee would point to the spot once again after Agbonlahor went down under a challenge from Koscielny. Benteke stepped up again and sent the goalkeeper the wrong way this time.
Koscielny's silly lunge moments later saw the defender booked for a second time, and forced Arsenal to leave themselves open at the back as they looked for an equaliser with a numerical disadvantage.
That space was exploited when Andreas Weimann slipped a perfect pass to Luna who smacked his finish in off the post to hand the Gunners and opening defeat.
