Arsenal v Aston Villa Betting Tips
The Gunners have won five of their last six games after holding on for a 3-2 victory against Brighton in the FA Cup last Sunday.
Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista has joined the North London side from Villarreal this week and could make his debut at centre back in the place of Nacho Monreal. Francis Coquelin was a surprise omission from the starting line-up against Brighton having starred in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Manchester City a fortnight ago. The young defensive midfielder is set to return but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain looks likely to miss out with a groin injury; joining the likes of Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Debuchy on the sidelines.
Olivier Giroud has scored four goals in his last five appearances and is our first betting tip at 7/2 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring on Sunday.
Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert would have been a relieved man last Sunday after his team scored twice to beat Bournemouth 2-1 to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup.
Villa have only netted on 11 occasions in the league this season; eight fewer than Sunderland who hold the second worst record for goals scored. Possession and chances will be hard to come by on Sunday, therefore an Arsenal clean sheet is our next selection at 4/6 with Stan James, and would prolong Villa’s Premier League goal drought to six games.
Fabian Delph admitted his team-mates were surprised to hear he had signed a new four and a half year deal with the club this week and the midfielder is still unavailable through an achilles injury. Captain Ron Vlaar is still side-lined leaving Villa’s defence vulnerable against a very attacking Arsenal team.
Arsene Wenger’s side to win by three or more goals is our final betting tip for Arsenal v Aston Villa at 15/8 with Sky Bet.
