Aston Villa will try their best to get some valuable points as they host Arsenal in the 16th match of the Premier League season at Villa Park.
Arsenal have had several great matches including a much needed win against Sunderland in the Premier League and recently beat Olympiakos 0-3 to progress to the Round of 16 in the Champions League.
Remi Garde has ejected some sort of life into Aston Villa as they seem a whole lot more hungrier for Premier League survival and will do whatever it takes to make the great escape from being bottom of the table.
Arsenal will try to string together back-to-back wins and could do so if they achieve to get three points at Villa Park.
Mesut Özil and Olivier Giroud have been in phenomenal form as the duo have dazzled the Premier League. Özil has scored two goals and assisted his team-mates over 12 times and Olivier Giroud has contributed with eight goals.
Aston Villa have been quite terrible in all cylinders to put it bluntly as both the attack and defense have both under-performed. Jordan Ayew and Rudy Gestede have both not filled the void left by Christian Benteke and the defence has not survived without the rock at the back, Ron Vlaar who decided not to extend his contract with Aston Villa.
Fun Fact: The last time these two played at Villa Park in the Premier League the match ended 0-3 and was an absolute trashing by Arsenal. We saw two different goalscorers in Danny Welbeck and currently in-form playmaker, Mesut Özil. Aly Cissokho even managed to score a own goal. Could Aston Villa get their first win against Arsenal since 2013?
Prediction: 1-3 win to Arsenal. This match should be a cake-walk for Arsenal and should see a lot of goals from them. Aston Villa haven’t shown any real signs of improvement but as we’ve seen in the Premier League, anything could happen! Arsenal will be missing the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin, Danny Welbeck and many more. Aston Villa have the likes of Jordan Amavi, Micah Richards and Gary Gardner on the sidelines and that could prove quite costly.
