Arsenal: The Gunners have gone three straight league games without a win but didn’t beat Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday in the Europa League with Pierre-Emerich Aubameyang finding the net. They are expected to win this, so if they don’t, prepare for more pressure on Unai Emery.
Aston Villa: Zero goals in the last two games, so where are the goals going to come from? Seven shots on target over the last two games are hardly enough, but part of it is trying to do too much on the ball. Even with a bit of space, this team needs to take more chances to get the ball on frame instead of looking for golden chance after golden chance.
Arsenal vs. Aston Villa prediction
The Gunners have this one over by halftime and cruise to a victory behind Alexandre Lacazette’s two goals.
