Premier League Football Prediction – Arsenal vs Aston Villa

Arsenal hosts Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium on Friday night. As they look to extend their Premier League unbeaten streak to six games, here is our expert Premier League football prediction – Arsenal vs Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, Villa were stunned by a late Wolverhampton Wanderers comeback in the West Midlands derby.

Team News

Arsenal

  • Arsenal’s sole confirmed absentee for the visit of Aston Villa is Granit Xhaka.
  • Beside Xhaka, Arsenal may be without Bukayo Saka after being sent off against Crystal Palace due to a harsh challenge.
  • After leaving Monday’s game with an issue, Kieran Tierney will also be evaluated. For the home team, Nuno Tavares is on standby.
  • If Saka is unable to recover from his injury in time, Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette are on standby.
  • If Arteta feels he needs a more defensive-minded midfielder to pair with Thomas Partey, Albert Sambi Lokonga is an option. However, both made mistakes that led to goals against Palace.

Aston Villa

  • Emi Martinez and Douglas Luiz both got the clearance to play less than 24 hours after arriving in the UK from South America, underscoring Dean Smith’s importance.
  • Morgan Sanson was fit enough to sit on the bench, and he’s aiming to return to Premier League action soon.
  • Dean Smith has cleared Leon Bailey to play, although he will most likely just play on Friday night. For the away side, Matty Cash has recovered from a dead leg.
  • Villa blew a two-goal lead last weekend, but they were worth it before making changes. So, an intact lineup is still a possibility despite the heartbreaking loss.

Match Facts

  • In 11 of Arsenal’s past 11 home games against Aston Villa in all competitions, they have scored over 2.5 goals.
  • Aston Villa have scored 2.5 goals in seven of their previous eight away games (Premier League).
  • In all competitions, though, Aston Villa has preserved a clean sheet in their last three matches against Arsenal.
  • Plus, Aston Villa has won both halftime and fulltime in their last three matches against Arsenal in all competitions.
  • In all competitions, Aston Villa has won their last three encounters against Arsenal.
  • Arsenal is unbeaten in their last five games (Premier League).

Premier League Football Prediction – Arsenal vs Aston Villa

  • Arsenal may consider themselves fortunate to have saved themselves a late point against Palace last time out. But after back-to-back draws, the home supporters will want the Gunners to go one better this time around.
  • Villa would have been in good shape if they had beat Wolves, but personnel issues have marred their season. Plus, key forward recruits have failed to line up together.
  • Dean Smith’s side have won the last three encounters between the two clubs without conceding a goal. This means that they know how to beat Arsenal, but the Gunners could be in for another draw.

Our Prediction: Arsenal 1-1 Aston Villa
