Our Top Tips for Arsenal vs Aston Villa

Here are our predictions for Arsenal vs Aston Villa.

*Odds from NetBet are subject to change

Over 2.5 Goals

At least three goals have been scored in three of the last five meetings between these two clubs and we're expecting more of the same from the pair this Friday. Over 2.5 goals have also been scored in three of Arsenal's last four outings and four of Aston Villa's last six matches, so you can see why we're predicting goals in Friday's game.

BTTS

We're not backing either team to keep a clean sheet in this game as both side's defences looked suspect last time out. Both teams have scored in two of Arsenal's last three matches and the Gunner's looked vulnerable at the back against Crystal palace's counter-attacks. three of Aston Villa's last four matches have seen both teams score and the visitors conceded three goals at home to Wolves last weekend.

Lacazette to Score

Alexandre Lacazette came on and made a big difference for Arsenal on Monday night at home to Crystal Palace, eventually scoring the equaliser for Arteta's side deep into stoppage time. Lacazette and Aubameyang clearly have a great understanding together and this is something Arteta should be looking to exploit, especially in home games when the Gunners are expected to take the game to their opponents. If Lacazette doesn't start he will come on against Aston Villa and we're backing the Frenchman to score.

Just 1pt and one position separates Arsenal and Aston Villa in the Premier League table

Arsenal ended up needing a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser to take a point from their home game against Crystal Palace on Monday night. The Gunners had been in good form ahead of kick-off and started this match really well but the Eagles soon turned the game in their favour and really should have held on for all 3pts. Lacazette was the Arsenal hero in stoppage-time and the French forward clearly made an impact when he came onto the pitch, so surely Arteta will start him against Aston Villa.

Aston Villa let a 2-goal lead slip at home to local rivals Wolves and ended up losing their derby match by three goals to two. All of Wolves' goals arrived in the final 10-minutes as Aston Villa completely collapsed at the back. Villa haven't quite made the impact most thought they would this season and it has taken more time for some of their new signings to settle, Injuries have also played their part in Villa's hit and miss run of form lately but if they put in a decent performance on Friday then there are points to be gained from their trip to London.

Team News

Arsenal: Granit Khaka and Bukayo Saka are both injury concerns ahead of Friday's clash with Aston Villa.

Aston Villa: Traore, Cash, Davis, Baily and Trezeguet could all miss the trip to the capital through injury.
