Image: Aston Villa denied super-early goal at Arsenal

John McGinn had thought he had opened the scoring against Arsenal for Aston Villa, only for the referee to rule it out.

The Villains looked to have made the perfect start to their trip to the Emirates, and they will no doubt feel hard done-by with the decision, after Ross Barkley was deemed as interfering with the goalkeeper from an offside position, despite not touching the ball.

Arsenal will now have to find their composure after the early shock, and get themselves into the driving seat.

Do Villa have the right to complain about the decision?

  1. It was a disappointing night lack of creativity in the final third. I won’t blame any of the players they were all below par. Arteta and arsenal will ruin their chance for a top 4 finish this season if they failed to buy a creative player in January or bring ozil back into starting eleven. Imagine grealish creating chances up on chances barkley too but no one from arsenal. To me arsenal will have a worse season if they continue like this.
