Aston Villa – Arsenal: ‘Gunners’ get up

Aston Villa - Arsenal: 'Gunners' get up 4

* Starts at 3pm London time (9pm Hanoi time) today.

The match in round five of the Premier League at Villa Park today is a competition between two of the three rare teams that still maintain an unbeaten record through the first four rounds (the other team is Chelsea).

Aston Villa is making a better impression with three wins and second place in the current table, including two recent wins.

In theory, Aston Villa can still play in a quick winning style like that to deal with Arsenal today, especially when the away team is having problems in the defense system due to a series of injuries in the attacking midfielder position.

Arsenal is rated higher than Aston Villa in terms of team quality.

Arsenal just lost to Dortmund in the opening round of the Champions League and lost points in the last three consecutive rounds after winning their opening match in the Premier League.

History is also on the side of the `Gunners`, as they were invincible in their last 15 visits to Villa Park in the Premier League, winning eight and seven times forcing Aston Villa to cut points.

Another factor that makes Arsenal more optimistic when stepping onto the Villa Park lawn today is the fact that Welbeck scored two goals here for Man Utd last season.


Aston Villa is unlikely to have midfielder captain Ron Vlaar for tonight’s match.

Arsenal can welcome back defensive midfielder Mathieu Flamini and versatile defender Calum Chambers – the duo could not participate in the loss to Dortmund due to injury.
