Arsenal vs Aston Villa saw the Gunners crumble in the hands of the visitors who won 3-0 at Emirates on Sunday, November 8.
Aston Villa kicked off the match on the right footing and nearly took the lead inside the first minute of game play through McGinn but had the goal chalked off by VAR after four minutes of deliberations.
However, that did not stop the visitors from pushing forward and finally made the breakthrough in the 25th minute after Bukayo Saka turned the ball into his own the net from close range.
The homeside continued to grow into the game but were wasteful in the final third as they could not find their shooting boots.
The second half of the match saw the Villans pick from where they left, with Ollie Watkins scoring a brace in quick succession.
The Englishman initially made it 2-0 in the 72nd minute, heading home from just two yards from Ross Barkley's impeccable volley.
The 24-year-old put the game to bed three minutes later, tucking the ball through the keeper's legs from Jack Grealish's impressive run.
Before then, Arsenal gobbled up all their goalscoring chances, with Alexander Lacazette and Willian all going close.
Unshaken, Villa held on to claim a huge victory and three important points away from home.
The win places them sixth on the charts with 15 points, on level with Chelsea who are fifth.
The Gunners, meanwhile, occupy 11th place with 12 points.
They will take Leeds United in their next league match on Sunday, November 22, after the international break.
