Arsenal vs Aston Villa Preview : Arsenal face a tough test of their title credentials this Sunday as Leandro Trossard and Zinchenko set to make the starting lineup…



Arsenal is set to host Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday for another exciting Premier League match.


The Gunners are currently in the midst of their Champions League quarter-final clash against Bayern Munich, coming off a disappointing defensive performance resulting in a 2-2 draw in the first leg.


Meanwhile, Aston Villa recently secured a 2-1 victory over Lille in the Europa Conference League last eight tie.


Despite their success in Europe, their domestic form has been inconsistent, including a 1-0 win against Arsenal back in December at Villa Park.


Their recent performances at home have been inconsistent, highlighted by their narrow 1-0 victory over Mikel Arteta’s team at Villa Park during a strong run of form in December.


Arsenal maintained their unbeaten streak in the Premier League by securing a comfortable 3-0 win against Brighton last Saturday. They will now aim to steer clear of any potential Unai Emery jinx. As the final title contender to play this weekend, the pressure may intensify by the time the match kicks off.


Below is our preview of the upcoming Sunday match.


Arteta will need to make some adjustments to his lineup as this game falls between clashes with Bayern.


Regarding injuries, there are no major updates. The focus now shifts to when Jurrien Timber will be back in action after training for more than a month.


Takehiro Tomiyasu, Thomas Partey, Leandro Trossard, and Gabriel Jesus are all potential inclusions in Arsenal’s starting eleven.


Aston Villa team update

Following his tenth yellow card of the Premier League season against Brentford, Douglas Luiz will be serving a suspension for Sunday’s game.


However, John McGinn will be available for selection by Emery. Unfortunately, Boubacar Kamara, Tyrone Mings, and Emi Buendia are still unavailable.


Additionally, it is likely that Matty Cash and Jacob Ramsey will not be able to play on Sunday.


Here are the predicted lineups for the Arsenal vs Aston Villa match:


Arsenal: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Partey, Rice, Odegaard; Saka, Jesus, Trossard.


Aston Villa: Martinez; Konsa, Carlos, Torres, Moreno; Tielemans, McGinn; Rogers, Diaby; Bailey, Watkins.


I predict that Arsenal will secure a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa in their upcoming match. Both teams have different motivations for the win, with Arsenal chasing the title and Villa aiming for a Champions League spot.


Despite Villa’s recent struggles and missing key midfielder Douglas Luiz, Arsenal may face a tough challenge at home. However, I believe Arteta’s team will ultimately find a way to come out on top in this physical and competitive match.
