Arsenal and Aston Villa kick off the second day of Gameweek 5 of the English Premier League.

Gameweek 5 of the English Premier League features a clash between two English football sleeping giants, Arsenal and Aston Villa. The Gunners are currently top of the table and the only team with a perfect record this season. Villa, on the other hand, are currently 16th in the table, having won just one of their four matches this season.

On Saturday, Arsenal were far from their best against an impressive Fulham, but the Gunners held on for a 2-1 victory. Martin Odegaard equalised in the 64th minute before Gabriel Magalhaes scored the game-winning goal four minutes later.
While Arsenal is flying high, Villa is not. They are coming off a 1-0 home defeat to West Ham United, with Pablo Fornals scoring the game’s only goal.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa: Players to Watch Out

Ollie Watkins

The English striker is the only consistent source of goals for Steven Gerrard. He has been the club’s talisman since joining from Brentford in the summer transfer window of 2019. Watkins has also contributed the most goals in his team this season, scoring once and assisting twice in four games.

Martin Odegaard

Since his permanent arrival from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window of 2021, the Norwegian attacking midfielder has been an instant hit at Arsenal. He is now the club’s captain and top goalscorer, having scored three goals and being the team’s pivotal player thus far.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa: Team News

Arsenal were missing Thomas Partey and Oleksandr Zinchenko against Fulham due to knee and thigh injuries, respectively, and the former will most likely miss this match as well. Arteta may decide to rest Zinchenko in order for him to play against Manchester United this weekend, so Kierney will keep his spot, but there will be a change in midfield due to Mohamed Elneny’s hamstring injury. New signee Fabio Vieira is an option, but Albert Sambi Lokonga appears to be the more likely replacement for the hosts. Changes could include Emile Smith Rowe and Takehiro Tomiyasu, but the starting lineup could be very similar to the one that faced Fulham.

Diego Carlos is a long-term absentee for Villa due to an Achilles tendon injury, but Tyrone Mings may be able to recover from the illness that forced him to miss the game against West Ham. Head coach Steven Gerrard is expected to make changes from the starting lineup that faced the Hammers, with Jacob Ramsey and Leon Bailey possibly coming in for starts. Ollie Watkins should keep his place at centre-forward, while Calum Chambers is likely to be dropped from the defence if Mings can prove his fitness.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa: Match Predictions

Fulham proved to be difficult opponents for Arsenal on Saturday, and this could be another difficult match for the Gunners. Villa have the ability to cause problems in the final third, but we expect Arteta’s side to win by a narrow margin, extending their unbeaten start to the season. We predict a 2-1 home win to Arsenal.
