Stadium: Emirates (London)
Arsenal have failed to win two games in a row. Will the unbeaten streak continue, or will the Villa lay down their arms? Under such circumstances, an Arsenal win seems unlikely.
Arsenal started the season with a series of three defeats. Then they had a three-game winning streak. Now the Gunners have a series of two draws with Brighton and Crystal Palace. The first round ended in a zero draw, which is difficult to find fault with. The second round saw the Gunners narrowly escape from Crystal Palace, led by Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira, with the second goal coming in the 93rd minute. Thus, the final scoreline was 2-2. After eight rounds, Arsenal are sitting in a legitimate mid-table position in 12th position.
Aston Villa’s form is uneven, but they sit just behind Arsenal, only one point behind the London club. After a sensational 1-0 win over United at Old Trafford, the Villan have lost two games in a row. First, Dean Smith’s side lost away to Tottenham (1-2), then they dropped a 2-0 home win against Wolverhampton. But the Villan conceded three unanswered goals in the second half to lose 2-3.
