Aston Villa Vs Arsenal:  Players To Watch As Villa Are On A Mission To Save Their Lives

Alexandre Lacazette celebrates his goal

In few hours time the Gunners will be involved in a very important clash against Aston Villa at the Villa Park Stadium.

The North London haven’t been too impressive with their performances all through this campaign having managed to win just 13 games from 36.

They have parted ways with two managers (Unai Emery and Ljunberg) already while the third manager Arteta is yet to get the best from his side.

Nonetheless, the former Manchester City assistant manager has managed to produce some excellent results despite all odds.

His side’s 2-0 victory over Manchester City during Saturday’s FA Cup semifinal clash was one of the best displays from the Gunners this season and they will hope to maintain such form later tonight.

Aston Villa at the other hand, are going through a very turbulent time and their Premier League status is under intense pressure.

Having won just eight games from 36, the Villa Park outfits are in the relegation zone with eight points — three points away from safety.

However, Dean Smith’s men are witnessing an upsurge in their performances of late and they would love to keep the spirit against wavering Arsenal side.

They recorded a much needed 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace and followed it up with a very spirited 1-1 stalemate against Everton last weekend.

Will these results help them record another famous victory over the North London club? We will discover soon.

Two Players To Watch

Aubameyang (Arsenal)

The Gabonese star scored twice against Manchester City and he looked to have regained his confidence after some uninspiring performances.

He is definitely one player many Arsenal fans are tipping to break the deadlock later tonight.

Jack Grealish (Aston Villa)

The England U21 international is one the few players who have had a decent time on the pitch for Dean Smith’s side this season.

He has found the back of the net on nine occasions in all competitions. His versatility and tricks will be extremely needed by his struggling teammates.

Our Prediction

Arsenal are in top shape having defeated City and Liverpool in less than a week.

Therefore, we are tipping them to narrowly defeat the Lions by 2-1.
