This Premier League clash sees Aston Villa take on Arsenal at Villa Park, and not many would have seen this being a clash between the top of the table and third place. Both of these teams have been playing some great football this season, so this is one of those matches that should be great for the neutrals. Arsenal will be looking to solidify their spot at the top, while Villa could jump into second place with a win. Before you go ahead and bet on this match, do yourself a favour and check out the following prediction.

🏆 Aston Villa vs Arsenal

Aston Villa are a team transformed this season, and if they are able to keep it up then they might just book themselves a spot in next season's Champions League - especially if the EPL gets one of the extra spots that is up for grabs. It is hard to believe that a little over a year ago, they were sitting just a few places above the relegation zone. Unai Emery has worked wonders with his charges, and they are formidable at home - they have won 14 home EPL matches in a row.

Arsenal have basically started where they left off last season. They have added a few additions to their team, and are now having another punt at winning the title for the first time since 2004. Every team need a bit of luck to win the EPL, and Arsenal are certainly having their fair share - just ask Luton fans if you do not believe me. They have lost just the one match this season, which is only equaled by Liverpool.

This has all the makings of a quality game with a lot of drama and entertainment, but who will come out on top? Well, I think it will be a close game, but my money would be on an Arsenal win. They got lucky in this fixture last season, scoring two goals in injury time, and it would not surprise if they got lucky once more.

My Prediction: 🏆 Aston Villa 1 Arsenal 1 ⚽

Aston Villa vs Arsenal: Match Winner

It is not surprising that Arsenal are the favourites for this match considering that they are sitting at the top of the league, but I do think that Aston Villa fans will find the odds for their team to be slightly insulting, considering their home record and the fact that they just beat City. If you are neutral, though, they are pretty enticing. Check out the match-winner odds in the table below:

Aston Villa vs Arsenal: Both Teams To Score

In the 30 matches that both of these teams have played this season, they have scored a total of 67 goals between them, so it is safe to say that finding the back of the net is not a problem for either of these sides. The bookmakers are favouring both teams to score, and it is easy to see why.


Aston Villa vs Arsenal: Over/Under 2.5 Goals

In the previous ten matches between these two teams, more than 2 goals have been scored on 6 occasions, so it is a fixture that historically has goals in it. There have been 30 goals in these matches, which averages 3 goals a game, so it is not surprising to see why the bookies are favouring over 2.5 goals to be scored.

✔️ Aston Villa vs Arsenal - Betting Tips

Now that I have given you the odds from five quality bookmakers for three popular football markets, I shall now provide you with my betting tips for this Aston Villa v Arsenal game.

  • Tip 1: Bet on Arsenal to Win: Unai Emery has transformed Villa into a team to be feared, but I still think that Arsenal will come out with another three important points. Villa have lost their previous four matches against Arsenal, and I think that Arteta's men will have just a little too much for Emery's men. Spreadex are currently offering odds of 2.10 for an Arsenal win.
  • Tip 2: Both Teams to Score: Villa have scored in five of their last six matches, while Arsenal have also scored in five of their previous six. Teams are finding it hard to prevent either of these two teams from finding the back of the net, so I am backing BTTS in this game. Kwiff Sports currently have odds of 1.57 for this market.
  • Tip 3: Over 2.5 Goals: Arsenal and Villa have scored 67 goals between them this season in the English Premier League, so I would not be surprised if there are a number of goals scored in this match. Keeping a clean sheet has been a struggle for both of these teams, so the last thing that I am expecting is a lack of goals. You can find odds of 1.72 for this market at Spreadex.
  • Tip 4: Arsenal to win 2-1: If you like placing bets on the correct score for a match because of the enticing odds, then I think that this will end 2-1 in Arsenal's favour. Spreadex have odds of 8.50 for Arsenal to come out on top 2-1.

1️⃣ Aston Villa Update

In November of last year, Villa were hovering just a point or two about the dreaded Relegation Zone, and looking destined for a relegation scrap. Steven Gerrard was brutally sacked straight after an embarrassing loss to Fulham, and Emery has come in and shown us his class. They have won 22 Premier League matches in 2023, which is a number that is only bettered by Manchester City.

Not only are they winning, but they have become a really entertaining team to watch. They play fantastic front-foot football and have no problem finding the back of the net. However, at times, they do tend to gift teams some soft goals with sloppy passes, and they cannot afford to do this against a quality Arsenal team.

When it comes to injury issues, they have no new additions or suspensions after their match against Manchester City. Emery also has no suspensions that he has to take into consideration when choosing his XI to take on Arsenal.

2️⃣ Arsenal Update

Arsenal find themselves sitting at the top of the table, which has been a familiar position for them in recent years. They came close to winning the title last year, but they fell away at the end - they will be desperate not to see a repeat this time around. The last team to beat Villa at home was Arsenal, and Arteta will be confident of getting one over on his compatriot on Saturday evening.

They have had their fair share of luck in their most recent matches, scoring late winners against Brentford and Luton, and maybe it will run out at Villa Park on Saturday.
