Arsenal vs Aston Villa Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 9
The Gunners and The Villans go head-to-head in an enthralling battle this weekend as both teams look to carry on their newfound momentum in the league. Alley Sport brings you the vs Arsenal vs Aston Villa Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips from the Premier League 21/22 season, gameweek 9.
Arsenal vs Aston Villa Preview
Aston Villa and Arsenal find themselves as two clubs looking for their identity this season. After three league losses in a row at the start of the campaign, the Gunners are perhaps wondering what their realistic target could be this season. The Villains, after losing Jack Grealish, have certainly taken down their ambitions by a notch or two and it is evident in their football.
Arsenal are on the back of an stale 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace but it’s important to note the background of the result. They are still unbeaten since gameweek 4 and were on the verge of defeat against Patrick Vieira’s men until the 95th minute. Their bouncebackability must be credited here and their manager, Mikel Arteta, deserves praise for it going into this weekend’s clash against Villa.
13th in the table with just 10 points from 8 matches so far, Aston Villa can leapfrog 12th-placed Arsenal who are on a five-game unbeaten run in the Premier League and sit above them in the table. It will be a tough task to achieve at the Emirates but one they know they should go for. Arsenal are not defensively sound and there for the taking.

Betting sites around the UK, including OddsChecker, a website that compiles Odds data from the top betting outlets in the United Kingdom, place Arsenal as the favourites in this game at 1/1, with the away side having 16/5 odds of winning at the Emirates.
A draw is equally likely at 11/4 while Arsenal hitman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is placed as the most likely goalscorer by the same website at 39/10, followed by his strike-partner, Alexandre Lacazette. 1-0 at full-time in favour of Arsenal is the most likely scoreline as per the Odds at 41/5, followed by a 1-1 draw. The safest money here would, in our opinion, be on an Arsenal win with Aubameyang to open the scoring. A clean sheet, however, seems unlikely for Arsenal.
