Arsenal (@1.4) vs Aston Villa (@7.5)

Our Prediction:

Arsenal will win

Arsenal – Aston Villa Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

Theres no reason as to why not. Why not Villa? Arsenal havent started off in an impressive manner and we know that anything can happen in football. Again, Villa might fancy a point here (or more, if they are looking at the game tape of Arsenals last match against a Watford side who have just been clipped by Manchester City).

Arsenal is listed as a favorite here, as they should be. They have won against Eintracht Frankfurt 3:0 which is a perfect reminder for everyone of how good Arsenal can be. They only have 8 points from 5 games. Currently they are 7 points behind the league leaders, Liverpool. They are a strong team with many goal-scoring options and a solid tradition behind them. Besides that, their Premier League season didnt start well.

Arsenal cannot do this, and last weeks game is the highlight of that. Villas main goal will be taking advantage of an Arsenal side that tries to be defensive without having any interest at all in being defensive. Simply deploying a low-block doesnt make a team defensive, controlling a game well, does. Holding onto the ball, playing out from the back, avoiding errors - these are the hallmarks of a defensive team in 2019.

Fixtures & Results

Arsenal is in a solid form this season. Aston Villa are playing attacking football and are always trying to outscore their opponents. They have 4 points after a surprising but very well deserved draw against West Ham at home. My opinion is that we can expect a high scoring game in this one. Arsenal won the last 5 games against Aston VIlla. They are scoring and conceding in every game they play. They have won 8 points from 5 games they played in the Premier League with a 8:8 goal difference. Historically they do not have trouble defeating them. Both teams are looking to secure as good as possible results in this game hoping to achieve their season goals.

At all. The name Arsenal should strike fear into Villa fans worldwide. In the new modern era of football (marked at about 2015), Villa havent been able to question Arsenal. Youll have to recall Gabby Agbonlahor, Antonio Luna, Olof Mellberg and more to consider the last time Villa threatened Arsenal. Simply put, Aston Villa havent enjoyed a good match against the north Londoners in a long while.

Reason For Arsenal vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

The Gunners experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last league match, but they are still seen as hot favourites to pick up all three points from Sundays football game. After dropping a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw with Watford, Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they host Aston Villa at their Emirates Stadium.

However, their defensive issues are a very real concern and they face a Villa side who have found the net in 4 of their 6 competitive outings this season. The Gunners have won each of their last 6 competitive meetings with Aston Villa too, and considering they have won 11 of their last 14 Premier League home games, were expecting them to make it 7 in a row on Sunday.

The Hornets swarmed, the box was overloaded, Cleverley scored, and Watford ruined Emerys plan - which had worked up until this point. Arsenal could still play it short, and didnt have to pass it within the box under a press, but they passed it within the box, limited the passing range for the defender and succumbed to pressure.
