Arsenal Betting Preview
The Gunner are not in a particularly good form. It has been three consecutive league games without a win for them. Against Aston Villa, they will be looking to avoid a second run of four games without a victory. To be fair to Arsenal, they have not lost a league game at home in this season. However, they have conceded in both of their games at the Emirates, but have also scored at least two goals. More interestingly, in their last four league home games, Arsenal have lost one half by a one goal margin. For the game with Aston Villa, Unai Emery will have some personnel issues. Alexandre Lacazette will miss the game. Sead Kolasinac and Kostas Mavropanos are questionable.
Predicted Lineup: Leno – Bellerin – Sokratis – Luiz – Maitland-Niles – Xhaka – Guendouzi – Ceballos – Ozil – Pepe – Aubameyang

Aston Villa Betting Preview
Aston Villa is in the relegation zone and are shaping up to be one of the prime suspects in the relegation battle. Nevertheless, the team does fight hard on away games, even though it has lost both of those this season. Interestingly, Villa have conceded all of their away goals in the second parts of their travels. In an interesting coincidence, the Lions’ last away victory in which they conceded first came at the Emirates Stadium. Dean Smith will also have some issues ahead of the game with Arsenal. James Chester and Jonathan Kodjia are sidelined due to injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Heaton – Davis – Engels – Mings – Taylor – Lansbury – Nakamba – Grealish – El-Ghazi – Wesley – Jota
