Sorry Aston Villa are in real trouble following Arsenal thrashing

Brad Guzan kicks the post in frustration after letting Santi Cazorla's penalty slip through his hands in Aston Villa's 5-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Arsenal thoroughly rubbed salt into Aston Villa's wounds at the Emirates. The visitors can't buy a Premier League goal in 2015 whereas five different players netted in a thoroughly convincing 5-0 rout for Arsene Wenger's men.

One of the few positives of a season nearing implosion had been Villa's improved defensive performances. This team can't score goals but don't give them away easily, either. Well, until Sunday afternoon that is.

High fives all round as Arsenal thrash hopeless Aston Villa

Mesut Ozil delivers a goal and an assist in his first Premier League start since October as Arsenal destroy Aston Villa at home.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol breaks down Arsenal's 'demolition' of Aston Villa and raises his concerns about the job security of Villa manager, Paul Lambert.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Arsenal's emphatic 5-0 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League.

1. Arsenal tear Villa apart

Patience is fast becoming a virtue for this Arsenal team. Arsene Wenger has become a late convert to the type of tactics that rivals like Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson have so often picked apart his team with -- sit back and wait and take the opportunities when the game comes to you.

Arsenal, having taken an early lead, had struggled to open any floodgates and a smidgeon...

Sinclair signing could be turning point for Aston Villa

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert believes new signing Scott Sinclair has 'great unfulfilled potential' as his side prepare to take on Arsenal.

Barely a week after manager Paul Lambert declared the deal "dead," Scott Sinclair is an Aston Villa player. It's another positive announcement in what has been a wholly satisfying few days for the club.

Fabian Delph's contract extension was the catalyst, followed quickly by the 2-1 win over Bournemouth in the FA Cup, a subsequent home draw in the fifth round, acres of upbeat media coverage -- chief executive Tom Fox speaking of five-year plans, the renewed enthusiasm of owner Randy Lerner and...

Fabian Delph's new Villa deal one of their best wins of the season

Fabian Delph has pledged his future to Aston Villa until 2019 by signing a new deal at the club.

There were two victories for Villa on Sunday. On the field, Carles Gil's stunning strike -- one of the finest goals seen at Villa Park for many seasons -- helped the side past Bournemouth, and before that, news of Fabian Delph's contract extension was universally celebrated.

As a club, Villa haven't played the PR game well enough of late, but the club managed the Delph deal superbly. Before kickoff it was revealed that "exciting player news" would be relayed via the screens in the stadium at 2.50pm....

Aston Villa celebrate Fabian Delph's new contract a little too much

Fabian Delph got a fabulous reception for signing his new contract.

With a distinct paucity of things to get excited about at the moment, it's perhaps understandable that Aston Villa kind of lost control on Sunday afternoon after finding themselves sitting on a sliver of good news to pass onto their long-suffering supporters.

It all started with a mysterious "teaser" on Twitter promising BIG PLAYER NEWS later in the day...

Aston Villa challenged by Seaford to find England's most boring team

Paul Lambert's attack has been anemic in long stretches of the season thus far.
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has had little reason to leap off the bench this season.

You probably don't need us to tell you that things are at a decidedly low ebb at Aston Villa at the moment, with Paul Lambert's shot-shy side managing to score a frankly dismal 11 league goals so far this season in the space of 22 games.

However, while Villa fans are perfectly entitled to moan, they should really spare a thought for supporters of non-league Seaford Town, one of the only clubs in the top 10 divisions of English football with a worse goal record than Lambert's impotent mob.
