Premier League | Arsenal VS Aston Villa; Sunday, 14 April at 23:30 GMT +8

The Gunners are leading the Premier League race, one point above Man City, after a 3-0 win over Brighton Hove & Albion and a four-goal stalemate against Liverpool. They must overcome every hurdle in the final seven rounds to end their years-long wait for glory. Arsenal’s journey begins with a challenging match against Aston Villa, who have a dominant run in 2024, claiming 10 victories out of 11 league contests and netting 37 times. They have a strong H2H record against the Villans, having bested them six times in the last seven face-offs at the Emirates. Aston Villa, on the other hand, has a shorter recovery time before heading to the capital. Unai Emery’s boss will take heart from a recent upset against his former club, but the chances of replicating the upset against the top dogs are bleak. Aston Villa’s recent dip in domestic results has led to them falling out of the top-four, prompting them to find a way back on track.

Arsenal’s selection process is complete, with only one fitness concern for Mikel Arteta. Jurrien Timber will miss the match. The Gunners may use a 4-3-3 formation.

Aston Villa manager Unai Emery faces limited availability due to injuries to Emiliano Buendía, Boubacar Kamara, Matty Cash, Tyrone Mings, and Jacob Ramsey. The Villans may use a 4-4-2 formation.

Predicted lineups:


Goalkeeper: David Raya
Defenders: William Saliba, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, Oleksandr Zinchenko
Midfielders: Martin Odegaard, Jorginho, Declan Rice
Forwards: Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Kai Havertz

Aston Villa

Goalkeeper: Emiliano Martinez
Defenders: Diego Carlos, Ezri Konsa, Lucas Digne, Pau Torres
