Aston Villa vs Arsenal Match Preview and Team News
Aston Villa are great this season. Although coach Unai Emery has said several times that they are not in contention for the title, Aston Villa are just four points behind league leaders Arsenal. The team from Birmingham has lost just one game out of their last 13 games in all competitions. They beat Manchester City 1-0 at home on Wednesday night. The surprising fact is that the home team was much better since they had twenty more shots on goal. Aston Villa played a phenomenal game so they should have plenty of confidence going into the derby against Arsenal on Saturday night. John McGinn found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy. Nicolo Zaniolo made his debut against Newcastle and showed that he will be a great reinforcement, Galatasaray easily gave up this guy. Emiliano Buendía (cruciate ligament tear) and Tyrone Mings (cruciate ligament tear) won’t be able to feature for Aston Villa boss Unai Emery.
Arsenal led the Premier League for most of the previous season, but eventually lost the title in a tight race to Manchester City. Mikel Arteta’s team is once again the leader of the strongest English competition, this time two points ahead of Liverpool. In the previous match they won 4-3 away against Luton. Arsenal scored 12 goals in the last three matches. For the visitors, Kai Havertz has been scoring regularly and has two goals in his last three games. Bukayo Saka shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Gabriel Martinelli showed why he was brought in. He has good dribbling, speed is his advantage, he is the starter in every game, and he scored several important goals last season. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has to contend with several unavailable players. Emile Smith Rowe (Knee injury), Jurrien Timber (cruciate ligament tear) and Thomas Partey (Hamstring injury) won’t be making appearances.
