Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been called out by fans on social media after the role he played in the move that led to Aston Villa's goal.
The Arsenal captain was spotted on camera laughing with Tyronne Mings while Villa was about to take a corner-kick.
But the Gabonese striker lost his marker as the Englishman flicked a header that landed into the path of Trezeguet and the Egyptian finished off the move brilliantly.
And that goal eventually became the match-winner as Mikel Arteta's side did not have a shot on goal in the entire 90 minutes of the game.
Arsenal fans have been left furious with Aubameyang and have accused the forward of being "mugged off" and joked that "Mings made a mockery of him".
Other fans branded his marking "embarrassing" and a "disgrace" as the Villans kept their hope of escaping relegation until their last day fixture against West Ham.
Arsenal's best move in the game fell to Aubameyang after he outpaced Frederic Guilbert on the left flank, but his final ball lacked quality as Eddie Nketiah waited for the cut-back.
The Gunners are 80 per cent sure of playing in the Europa League next season after making it through to the FA Cup final.
The result at Villa did not affect their chances as their game against Chelsea in the FA Cup final will ensure their qualification to Europe either win or lose.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that It was a fight to the finish on Tuesday night, July 21 when Arsenal suffered a major setback in their quest to reach next season's Europa League as they lost 1-0 to Aston Villa.
The highly entertaining encounter saw the hosts leave temporarily leave the relegation zone, while Arsenal's quest for the Europa league was dashed.
Mikel Arteta's men looked so bright as they press for the lead and in the 13th minute, Bukayo Saka looked to capitalise against Ahmed Elmohamady down that left channel; he found Eddie Nketiah, whose first touch wasn't great and couldn't connect with the effort before Tyrone Mings cleared the danger.
