Arsenal Preview – Will the Gunners stretch undefeated run?

Arsenal had a miserable start to their league season, crashing to three defeats from their opening three. After losses to Brentford, Chelsea and Manchester City, the Gunners went into the first international break of the season at the bottom of the Premier League table.

Since returning to action in mid-September, things have been far rosier in the Emirates garden. Mikel Arteta’s men won four league and cup matches on the bounce, seeing off Norwich City, Burnley, Wimbledon and Tottenham Hotspur. However, they have drawn with Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace in their last two.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Arsenal left it late to rescue a point against Patrick Vieira’s Palace on Monday night, with Alexandre Lacazette netting an injury-time leveller. After back-to-back draws, the Londoners will be hoping to return to winning ways on Friday.

Aston Villa Preview – Villans to fall to a third successive league loss?

Dean Smith’s Aston Villa have had a mixed bag of results at the start of this season. After opening up with just one win from four in the Premier League, Villa hit back with impressive wins over Everton and Manchester United.

Since victory at Old Trafford on matchday six, the Midlands outfit have lost two on the spin in the Premier League. They suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before the international break. Then last time out, Aston Villa let a 2-0 lead slip to lose 3-2 at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa Betting Advice

Aston Villa have certainly had Arsenal’s number in recent times, winning the last three meetings. The Villans picked up an impressive 3-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium last November, with an own goal and an Ollie Watkins brace doing the business. Watkins was then on target as Villa won 1-0 at Villa Park in the reverse fixture in February.

Aston Villa have won three in a row against the Gunners, with Arsenal’s last victory in this fixture being a 3-2 home success back in September 2019. Villa led twice at the Emirates, but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit a late winner.


Key Facts – Arsenal vs Aston Villa Betting Tip

  • Aston Villa have won the last three meetings without conceding
  • Arsenal are unbeaten in six (four wins, two draws)
  • Villa have lost their last two Premier League games


Aston Villa have enjoyed plenty of success over Arsenal in recent times, but we fancy the in-form Gunners to secure a routine home triumph here. You can get 9/4 for Arsenal to win -1.

Alexandre Lacazette came off the bench to rescue a point against the Eagles on Monday. That was the Frenchman’s first league goal of the season, and Lacazette is available at 9/2 to score anytime in this one.
