Arsenal vs Aston Villa match preview
Date: Sunday, 8th November
Time: 12:45 AM IST
Venue: The Emirates, London
Arsenal come into this match in an inconsistent form. The Gunners have won their last 3 matches in all competitions, but these include two Europa League fixture against minnows Dundalk and Molde. In their last three Premier League fixtures, Arsenal have lost two, including defeats to Manchester City and Leicester City. However, Arsenal would be buoyant after their impressive showing vs. Molde yesterday, and a record breaking win at Old Trafford.
Aston Villa on the other hand, find themselves with the points tally as Arsenal, but with a game in hand. The Villains can go 2nd on the table with a win, which highlights their impressive start to the season as despite losses in their last two games in the Premier League, Villa still have the opportunity to stay in the top two.
Arsenal and Aston Villa team news and injury update
Arsenal’s injury worries are not the worst. While the Gunners will be missing defenders Pablo Mari and Callum Chambers, they will have enough cover in their defence with new signings Gabriel and Salilba. Young sensation Gabriel Martinelli will also be unavailable for selection due to a knee injury. Mesu Ozil has been out of favor with the Arsenal manager and will not feature.
Aston Villa will be without high-profile striking duo Wesley Moraes and ex-Ajax player Bertrand Traore. The Villains also have goalkeeper Tom Heaton and young defender Kortney Hause on the sidelines.
Both teams have no players out due to suspension and will be expected to field their strong lineups in this important league fixture.
