Coincidentally, the both teams lost their last matches, with Aston Villa losing 1-3 to West Ham while Arsenal who had two red cards in their last match against lost by 2 goals to Wolves.
Though Aston Villa won the reverse fixture, but Aston Villa haven’t completed a league double over Arsenal since the first Premier League season in 1992/93.
Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins would be hopeful against the Gunners, having netted twice at the Emirates earlier this season against Arsenal in their 3-0 Premier League win – only Didier Drogba has ever scored 2+ goals in consecutive Premier League games against the Gunners, doing so in the 2009/10 season.
It is worthy to note that Arsenal lost their last match against Wolves, ending a seven game unbeaten run for the Gunners in the Premier League (W5 D2). They last lost consecutive league games in November/December, a run of three which began with defeat to Wolves.
But then, Arsenal haven’t lost three league games in a row against Aston Villa since November 1993, when they lost their first three Premier League encounters with the Villans.
If there’s any body to be careful about in this Arsenal team, it is Nicolas Pepe. Arsenal’s Nicolas Pépé has scored in each of his last three away games in the Premier League, having scored in just two of his first 18 on the road in the competition.
The last Arsenal player to score in four straight away league games was Olivier Giroud between September-November 2015.
The both teams have quite had the goals between them and both defences appear not to be the best in the game currently. So the best bet is the both teams scoring, or basically any team can win.
