Arsenal vs Aston Villa Match Preview and Team News
The Gunners salvaged a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace on Monday night, thanks to a last-minute goal by Alexandre Lacazette. After a shaky start to the season, Arsenal seems to have found their feet under Mikel Arteta. The Gunners are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions, and they have improved defensively with four clean sheets in those encounters. However, Arteta’s side is a long way from being the finished product and was a touch fortunate to salvage a point against Palace. Villa will be confident they can get the better of Arsenal, having done the double over the Gunners last season. Despite their recent improvement in form and results, Arsenal’s season has yet to ignite under Arteta truly. A six-game unbeaten streak has lightened the mood and lifted spirits at the club, but they have yet to start beating teams convincingly. Emile Smith Rowe shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in. He has good dribbling, and speed is his advantage.
Aston Villa looked good for three points when they led Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 on Saturday with 10 minutes remaining, but by 5 pm, they had shipped three goals and all three points. Dean Smith’s side has struggled in recent weeks, failing to build on their shock 1-0 win away to Manchester United in September. The Midlands outfit has since lost to Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves, and it is the manner of their defeat to Bruno Lage’s side that could play on their minds this weekend. With 10 minutes to go, Villa was in total control, but they conceded three goals in ten minutes to surrender a two-goal lead. Arsenal has improved in recent weeks, and they should edge home but do not expect Villa to go down without a fight. Smith’s side has scored eight goals in their past five matches in all competitions, while they have netted in both of their previous two league matches on their travels. Ollie Watkins is a great striker, and he scored 14 goals last season. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
