Arsenal and Aston Villa go head-to-head at the Emirates Stadium for a Premier League (PL) fixture that sees the visitors trying to bring Arsenal’s six-game winning run in competitive H2Hs to a halt.
After a promising start to the 2019/20 campaign and back-to-back wins over Newcastle United and Burnley, the hosts have struggled to pick up a triumph in the last three PL outings (D2, L1). Both of Arsenal’s league draws have ended with the identical 2-2 scoreline and have seen the match hosts trailing at the break before reducing the gap in the second half. Dominant when at home, the Gunners have won eight of 11 PL home games since the turn of the year (W8, D2, L1). Although they’ve kept a blank sheet only four times across those matches, Unai Emery’s men have netted 2+ match goals ten times in that sequence. Encouraged by a solid competitive home H2H record against Aston Villa recently (W6, L1), Arsenal will now look return to winning ways.
Meanwhile, the visitors have endured torrid time since returning to the top-flight (W1, D1, L3), losing both of their previous PL trips by conceding four goals while scoring just one. Aston Villa’s main issue this term is a lack of goals, as their tally of four goals scored so far is the league’s second-joint worst in the PL. Idle between the 25th and 70th minute, all of the Villan’s PL goals have arrived inside the opening 25 minutes and the final 20. Another potential worry for the returnees is that they’ve failed to secure a win in four of the last five competitive trips (W1, D2, L2), netting under 1.5 match goals four times in that period.
