Arsenal vs Aston Villa, Premier League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Arsenal going head to head with underdogs Aston Villa to continue their winning run after a hard-fought victory against United last week. 

Match Timings: Nov 09, 12:45 AM 

Team Preview 

Aston Villa makes the trip to the Emirates Stadium to settle their points after two successive defeats to Leeds United and Southampton. Villa have scored 15 times in the top flight, thanks to 7 goals in a single encounter against Liverpool. The contest between Villa’s attack and Arsenal’s defense would be a fascinating one. Dean Smith's side scored thrice against Southampton in the loss, and the late effort couldn’t save them. Villa has got two clean sheets out of three this season in away matches. Trezeguet could replace Bertrand Traore tonight, who suffered an injury against Southampton. Emiliano Martinez will also play his first game against his former club. 

Meanwhile, Arsenal secured a much-needed victory at Old Trafford after defeats against Liverpool, Manchester City, and Leicester City. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's penalty gave a slice of positivity in Gunner’s camp, and they can lift themselves in the table. Arteta’s men are placed at the tenth, and three points from the home-game can charge them to the top five. The Gunners have conceded just five goals from their last eight matches, including three clean sheets. Arteta is in no mood to make changes in Gunner’s XI. Nicolas Pepe is pushing for a recall. Mohamed Elneny is likely to retain his place. 

The Gunners have a terrific record at home against the Villa, having won the last three games by scoring 12 goals and conceding just two. In the last one year, they suffered just one defeat at home, which was recorded this season against Leicester. Dean Smith faces a tough assignment, and three consecutive defeats after four straight wins would hit their mind for the upcoming matches.
