Aston Villa v Arsenal Preview, Premiership, Sunday 13th December 2015

Aston Vill head into this game on Sunday lunch time having had a terrible season so far and currently occupy bottom of the league table on just 6pts from a possible 45 !

The hosts did manage to secure a good 1-1 draw away at Southampton last weekend, but you have to go back to the 8th August to find the last time Aston Villa actually managed to win a game when beating AFC Bournemouth 1-0 away from home and those statistics show, that unless they can start producing some wins, they look destined for relegation come next May.

Arsenal head into this game having secured their place in the knock out stages of the UEFA Champions League with a convincing 3-0 victory away from home against Olympiakos midweek and both the players and fans will strongly believe that they will return back home to the capital on Sunday night with all 3pts from this game.

Aston Villa Team News:

The hosts have no fresh injury concerns for this match but there are concerns over defender Micah Richards who is struggling with a knee problem and he will under take a late fitness test to determine whether or not he plays in this one.

Arsenal Team News:

The visitors continue to be without the services of Mikel Arteta, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin and Alexis Sanchez as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems.

Aston Villa are having a season to forget at the moment and look destined for relegation to the championship next may, so no surprise to see the online bookmakers offering up their current best price of 6/1 with Betfred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets for New Customers, for them to somehow win this game on Sunday afternoon.

The Draw is a current best price of 16/5 with Bet365 – £200 Free Bets For New Customers, but this also looks like an unlikely outcome as there has not been a draw between the two teams in the previous six meetings.

Arsenal are the clear favourites to win this game and look good value at their current best price of 4/7 with Paddy Power – Deposit £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets when Registering a New Account, and I can definitely see plenty of people having this down as an Away Win Banker for Sunday’s matches.

Aston Villa v Asrenal Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Aston Villa have have gone 14 matches without a win, which has become the longest run without a victory in Premier league history and with the squad looking weak in several key areas, it really is impossible to believe that the hosts can win this game on Sunday.

Arsenal however are riding high and having secured qualification to the knock out stages of the UEFA Champions League midweek, which looked almost an impossible task after their first couple of matches in the group, the whole squad will be full on confidence when they take to the pitch and the visitors look great value to win this game at their current odds on offer.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be Arsenal to Win as I really can’t see Aston Villa being able to keep this Arsenal strikeforce at bay for long and once Arsenal get the first goal, I can only see them going on to get more as Villa throw more people forward looking for the equaliser.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Oliver Giroud to grab the first goal of this game as with a hatrick midweek against Olympiakos, he will be in confident mood of getting his name on the score-sheet in this game.
