Arsenal vs Aston Villa Match Preview
Arsenal’s results continue to be better than the public perception of them as a team – and that could be the case again when they host Aston Villa on Sunday.
The Gunners have lost only two of their last 11 matches, yet they were widely criticised for allowing Watford – who were inspired by the return of a popular manager – to fight back from 2-0 down for a 2-2 draw last weekend.
It was obviously not an ideal outcome for Unai Emery’s side, yet they shrugged off the brickbats and went to Eintracht Frankfurt and pulled off a 3-0 victory on Thursday in the Europa League which was a terrific response at a very difficult place to visit.
Still a tricky team to weigh up, Arsenal are an easy target when things are not going swimmingly but if they can win at home to Villa, as they should, then it can be classed as a satisfactory start to the campaign with just a solitary defeat away to Liverpool so far.
Villa, meanwhile, have failed to score in their last two games and appear not to have properly got to grips yet with life back in the Premier League after being promoted via the play-offs.
However, they led for more than an hour when they visited Arsenal’s fierce rivals Tottenham on the opening weekend of the season and have shown themselves to be defensively sound enough of late to avoid too emphatic a defeat at the Emirates.
