Arsenal got back to winning ways with a 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League last time out, and will be keen to right the wrongs of their dismal 2-2 draw with Watford in the Premier League as they host Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium.
Newly-promoted Villa also drew their last league game and may well feel disappointed at being unable to force a winner against 10-man West Ham United at home, with the game finishing goalless at Villa Park.
Head To Head
Arsenal have won their last six competitive meetings with Villa in all competitions and have not conceded in any of their last five against them.
In the last 20 years, Arsenal have only lost three games against Villa from 37 meetings in all competitions, winning 20 of those games.
However, only Manchester United and Chelsea have won more games against the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium than Villa, with Villans claiming victories in 2008, 2011 and 2013.
Possible Line Ups
Arsenal: Leno; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Guendouzi, Ceballos, Ozil; Pepe, Aubameyang
Aston Villa: Heaton; Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Taylor; Luiz; Jota, McGinn, Grealish, Trezeguet; Wesley
Arsenal’s strong record against Villa, coupled with the red-hot form of star striker Aubameyang, who has six goals in six games this season, makes them clear favourites to beat Aston Villa.
