Match Preview

Confidence is rising around Villa Park that Unai Emery could lead the club to something pretty special in 2023-24. Aston Villa come into this match sitting third in the standings after winning three of their last four matches. They upset the odds in midweek with a stunning performance at home against Man City, as they landed a 1-0 win.

However, such was their dominance in that match, Villa could have easily won by three or four. They also limited the reigning champions to just two shots on target. The Villa’s winning goal was netted with 15 minutes remaining by Leon Bailey. Their home record has been staggering under Emery, as they have now won each of their last 14 matches at Villa Park in the Premier League.

Arsenal will be the latest visitors to Villa Park on Saturday, as the Gunners look to move five points clear at the top of the Premier League standings. They come into this match in excellent recent form, as Mikel Arteta’s side have won each of their last four. However, they needed a massive slice of luck to maintain that winning sequence in midweek, as Declan Rice scored the 97th-minute winner in a 4-3 success at Luton.

Arsenal have landed victories in each of their last four Premier League matches against the Villa, with the latest of those coming in the form of a 4-2 success last season. Meanwhile, they have won on each of their previous two visits to Villa Park after losing two on the bounce in 2020 and 2021.

Aston Villa vs Arsenal Prediction

This could be a classic showdown in the Premier League on Saturday, as both sides come into the match in stunning form. However, Villa’s home record is excellent, and at the prices available, it is well worth siding with a home win this weekend.
