Premier League Match Preview: Aston Villa vs Arsenal,watch live streams,lineups,prediction
Villa Park — Birmingham
Referee: L. Mason
Arsenal for some time, doesn’t start the season so good, but Aston Villa definitely had one of the worst opening in the last twenty seasons.
Currently, they are on the 18th position with only 9 points, does that mean that this season they will have to fight for survival?
Plenty of guilt for Aston Villa´s current position in Premier league has and a tough draw which awarded Villan´s with three tough matches in a row.
Who can blame the coach Lambert and his players for defeats against Manchester United,and Man City?
However the defeat of 0:5 against Man City did not well laid to management, or the fans, but it’s just one more reason that Aston Villa’s players now try to make amends against Arsenal which is always unpleasant for them.
Tradition is on the Gunners side, but Villa is hoping to be able to use that Arsenal, just three days before the tour in Birmingham, had a tough Champions League match at the Emirates Stadium against the French champion in an important match for the passage in the second round of the Champions League.
Coach Lambert can not count due to injuries on several players, such as defenders Dunne, Bennett and Lichaj, midfielders N’Zogbia, Gardner and Herd and striker Bent.
Although they opened this season pretty bad, chosen of coach Arsene Wenger raised their “level” in the last few games, and certainly the best impression they left the last weekend, at the Emirates when they smashed their city rivals Tottenham Spurs with 5-2 (Full match video).
Four days ago in the Champions League home match against Montpellier they celebrated the victory of 2:0 and so definitely ensured their appearance in the second round of this competition.
For this encounter at Villa Park due to injury Wenger still can not count on the goalkeeper Fabianski,defender Gibbs, midfielders Diaby and Rosicky and striker Gervinho.
Possible lineups :
Aston Villa : Guzan;Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Stevens,Weimann, Westwood, Ireland, Bannan, Agbonlahor,Benteke
Arsenal : Szczesny;Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Vermaelen;Arteta, Wilshere, Cazorla;Walcott, Giroud, Podolski
Match Prediction :While the guests from London are the absolute favorites in this match, we’re still a bit skeptical about their victory here, because the players of Aston Villa after two defeats will need to take at least a point here.Both teams to score,or over 2,5 goals.
