Arsenal vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 22 September 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK / 17:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
The Arsenal faithful have been left disappointed with their squad who are without a win in their last two Premier League games. Unai Emery men have been forced to share the spoils in each of those clashes, that too by the same 2-2 scoreline.
Their previous trip on the road to Watford saw them throw away their healthy two-goal advantage while on home soil they had to fight back from behind to level the scores against Tottenham.
Aston Villa’s return to the Premier League has not gone according to plan so far. The visitors have failed to find the back of the net in each of their previous two clashes, the last of which was a frustrating stalemate at home with West Ham.
Furthermore, the away side’s only win in the league has come in one of their fixtures on home soil. With a far from impressive away record on their heads, Arsenal are the favorites to return to winning ways.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa Prediction
The Gunners have been plagued by defensive errors in their last two games, and have had a penalty awarded against them in each of those matchups. Nevertheless, it needs saying that the hosts have been showing promise in the domestic campaign.
The North London side have admitted defeat just once from their last five clashes, which to their defense was on the road to the current table toppers. On the other hand, Dean Smith’s men have been struggling, to say the least, in their respective fixtures, and have lost their only two outings in the league so far.
Considering that Villa have not tasted success in any of their previous three visits to the Emirates Stadium either, Arsenal are certainly in for an easy win this weekend.
Additionally, the away side have not been a threat in the final third are without a goal to their names in their last two games in a running. Taking into account that Aston Villa have not been able to breach this foe in their last three trips here as well, by all means, count on Arsenal to open the scoring.
