            Aston Villa vs Arsenal Prediction, Tips & Stats

            It's set to be one of the games of the season when Aston Villa welcomes Arsenal to Villa Park on Saturday with the Villains moving up into third and only adrift of the table-topping Gunners by four points.

            This has now officially been Villa's best-ever start to a Premier League season after a stunning, famous win over the European champions, Manchester City. Leon Bailey's deflected goal earned Unai Emery all three points for the 10th time this season, and Villa have even now moved above City in the table by two points. They also restricted the Premier League champions to just two shots in the entire game, which is by a distance the lowest tally ever seen under Pep Guardiola in the Premier League.

            Arsenal had some celebratory moments of their own in midweek, as a thrilling clash with Luton Town saw Declan Rice snatch the winner in stoppage time with his third Premier League goal for the Gunners. His 94th-minute finish saw Arsenal stay top of the Premier League ahead of Liverpool by two points, while it now means Mikel Arteta's men are staring in the face of back-to-back first-place finishes at Christmas - they haven't done that since the early 2000s.

            Arsenal have now won 11 games and lost only once to Newcastle United, but after a stunning win over City during the week for Villa, heading to Villa Park has rapidly become one of the toughest places to go in the Premier League, as they even smashed Brighton & Hove Albion 6-1 here.

            McGinn to commit 3+ fouls, Saka to score or assist and 3+ corners in each half is up at 16/1 for this game, while you can also get odds as high as 250/1 for McGinn and Odegaard to each take 2+ shots on target and Digne and Havertz to each commit 2+ fouls.

            Declan Rice 1+ fouls committed is at EVENS too, and Rice committed 1 foul in his last league appearance. 12+ match shots on target is at 3/1 if you're expecting a thriller, while Ollie Watkins and Gabriel Jesus both to score is boosted to 11/1 and Bukayo Saka 2+ shots on target is at 7/2 - Saka had 2 shots on target in the last match between these two teams and scored last weekend.
