Arsenal go up against Aston Villa in the Premier League 2022-23 at the Emirates Stadium in London on Thursday, September 1, 2022, at 12:00 AM IST.

Arsenal lead the Premier League points table so far this season with four wins on the bounce. Arsenal are now the only team in Europe’s top five leagues with a perfect win record this season. The Gunners beat Fulham 2-1 in their last match after being a goal down in the second half. 

Meanwhile, Aston Villa suffered a 1-0 defeat against West Ham United in their last league match and are currently 15th on the Premier League 2022-23 points table.

The Gunners have won 14 and drawn one of the last 20 matches against Aston Villa in all competitions. At the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal have won 13 matches against Villa, who have won six matches, in the Premier League. 

However, Aston Villa have won three of the last five matches against the Gunners. The visitors have also won thrice at the Emirates Stadium since the 2013-14 Premier League season. 

Arsenal’s defence and midfield lack pace and they play a high-pressing style of football. With Ollie Watkins, Leon Bailey and John McGinn, Aston Villa have the pace to get in behind the Arsenal defence and trouble the goalkeeper. 

Watkins exploited the Gunners backline in this manner at the Emirates Stadium in the 2020-21 season as Aston Villa won the match 3-0. Villa are likely to once again employ similar tactics to beat the hosts in this fixture.
