The first Premier League game of the weekend sees Aston Villa take on Arsenal at Villa Park. The Midlands side have won just two of their last eight home games in all competitions, losing five, but did beat Arsenal 1-0 in the reverse fixture. Dean Smith’s side have scored in eight of their last nine games, only failing to score away to Manchester City.
Arsenal have recovered from their awful start to the season, but lost their first league game of 2021 on Tuesday night, as they were controversially reduced to nine men in a 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton. The Gunners have won three of their last four games away from home in the league and will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing midweek performance.
We think Arteta’s side will come out on top in the early kick-off in an entertaining game, with both teams scoring which is 10/3.
