Aston Villa vs Arsenal Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Tuesday, 21 July 2020. Scheduled kick-off 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET at the Villa Park.
The Gunners are running high on confidence at the moment. They took out Manchester City from the FA Cup with ease, and this came days after they beat Liverpool – thus becoming the only team this season to defeat these two titans.
As of now, they are placed 10th in the table, with 53 points – lagging five points behind the final European spot. With just two match-days remaining, they will make a desperate push to make it into Europe, and it definitely helps that they have two easy match-ups in the final two game weeks.
The Lions are currently in the relegation zone. They can deliver two flawless performances in the next two fixtures and still can come up short – as their chances to extend their stay in the PL now depends on how Watford manage their remaining games.
Considering the desperation of Mikel Arteta’s men to make into Europe, their new-found confidence, and their overwhelming h2h superiority – expect an Arsenal win this Tuesday.

Aston Villa vs Arsenal: Prediction
Dean Smith’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last game week, by Everton. In the meantime, Arteta’s men registered a confidence-boosting 2-1 win at home over Liverpool.
As things stand, the Gunners are easily the favorites. They are on a seven-fixture winning run against this rival, and are unbeaten against them at this venue since 1998. They had also scored a total of 23 goals from the past seven h2h clashes, while keeping clean sheets in five of the former six.

Finally, Smith’s men were winless in 12 of their previous 13 overall games, and were so in seven of their last eight appearances at home.
Considering these stats, expect a convincing win by Arsenal at the Villa Park.
