Arsenal Prediction – Can Arsenal bounce back in must-win game?

Following three matches without a win in the Premier League, Unai Emery’s Arsenal outfit now occupy a disappointing mid-table position in 10th place in the top flight which now makes this upcoming clash against Aston Villa a ‘must-win’ game for The Gunners.

A 3-1 defeat to Liverpool was followed by points in 2-2 draws with both Tottenham in the North London derby and Watford, the former seeing Arsenal come from two goals behind to snatch a point while the latter was a disappointing result which saw Arsenal drop two points after holding a 2-0 lead at Vicarage Road.

Arsenal’s age-old problem in recent years have been their lack of consistency overall throughout the whole of a season, but having lost just 1 out of their last 20 matches on home turf, Arsenal have a great opportunity to return to winning ways here, which they must do if they want to keep pace with the top four.

Within this 20-match sequence at home, Arsenal have suffered just the one defeat which was to Crystal Palace, but The Gunners have also beaten the -1 asian handicap line in 12 of these 20 matches at The Emirates.

Aston Villa Prediction – Can Aston Villa pull out of bottom three?

As the above indicates, the west midlands visitors find themselves in the early relegation zone after managing just 1 win out of their first 5 matches of the new Premier League season upon their return to the top flight under manager, Dean Smith.

Villa’s new campaign could hardly have got off to a worse start as they suffered early back-to-back defeats to Tottenham and Bournemouth, but The Villains struck back with a much-needed boost and three points with a solid 2-0 home win against an out of sorts Everton side.

This has been the extent of Villa’s success to date though as they’ve since been handed a 1-0 loss away at Crystal Palace and were held to a 0-0 draw at Villa Park by West Ham in last weekend’s dour stalemate, and their situation looks set to worsen when you consider Villa’s poor record away from home in the top flight.

The visitors are without an away win from their last 20 matches on their travels in the Premier League and as well as losing their last 9 on the trot on the road, they’ve also lost a staggering total of 17 out of these last 20 away from home too.


Key-Facts – Arsenal v Aston Villa

  • Arsenal have lost just 1 out of their last 20 matches at home in the EPL
  • The Gunners have also beaten the -1 asian line in 12 of these 20 matches
  • Aston Villa have lost 17 out of their last 20 away matches in the EPL


Betting Tips Verdict

Arsenal must therefore surely win this clash, and the hosts should also cover the -1 asian handicap line into the bargain too.
