Arsenal vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 31 August 2022
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal continue to be the best team in the English top flight this season, with a 100 percentage winning record. This Wednesday they will be eager to keep this trend going on in front of their home crowd against the struggling Aston Villa.
Villa have a 100 percentage losing record so far this season, disregarding a single fixture. They have been letting in goals in huge numbers and it goes without saying that they are placed at the bottom-most tier of the table.
Moreover they have also been letting in goals in plenty in away fixtures lately and their recent performances have only increased pressure upon them.
Meanwhile the Gunners are finally reaping the rewards for keeping trust in their manager. It was tough for them for the past few seasons but now it seems that they are on the right track.
At the beginning of the campaign the best they hoped for was a top-4 finish, but now there is even talk that the team just might go for the title.
They already have a lead at the top of the table and it is important for them to keep this cushion of points alive at any cost.
Moreover, they also have a dominant head-to-head record against this rival over the years. Considering these observations, expect Arsenal to deliver another victory this Wednesday.
