      Aston Villa vs Arsenal Predictions

      Aston Villa just don’t look capable of getting themselves out of trouble. They sit rock bottom of the Premier League table with just six points from their opening 15 matches.

      Three of these points came on the opening day of the season when they beat Bournemouth 1-0, and since then they haven’t managed to pick up a single win in the Premier League.

      They have lost 11 of their last 14 league matches, drawing against Manchester City, Sunderland, and Southampton.

      It’s going to be difficult for them to end this winless streak against Arsenal on Sunday. The Gunners are on a four match unbeaten streak in all competitions and have won three of their last four.

      Their last match saw them beat Olympiakos 3-0 in the Champions League, a very surprising result which saw them miraculously qualify for the knockout stages of the competition.

      Their form has taken them to 2nd position in the Premier League table, just two points behind league leaders Leicester and one point ahead of Manchester City in 3rd.

      Arsenal are in good scoring form as well. They have netted ten times in their last four outings in all competitions, and they are coming up against an Aston Villa side who have shipped 11 in their last five games.

      Five of Aston Villa’s last seven matches have seen three or more goals scored, whilst Arsenal have seen goalfests in eight of their last ten outings.

      Recent history between these teams also points towards a glut of goals. A huge 22 goals have been scored in the last six meetings between Arsenal and Aston Villa, with all of those games ending with more than two goals.

      This makes odds of 17/20 for Over 2.5 Goals look very appealing to me. I think Arsenal will get the win as well, so I’m also backing a 2-1 correct score prediction at 8/1.
