Arsenal – Aston Villa Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

Arsenal is listed as a favorite here, as they should be. They have won against Eintracht Frankfurt 3:0 which is a perfect reminder for everyone of how good Arsenal can be. They only have 8 points from 5 games. Currently they are 7 points behind the league leaders, Liverpool. They are a strong team with many goal-scoring options and a solid tradition behind them. Besides that, their Premier League season didnt start well.

In the scatter graph above, produced by the excellent Experimental361, we can see that Aston Villa head the graph and fall into the competent but busy category when defensive effectiveness is highlighted. This shows that Aston Villa, more than most teams, are capable of absorbing shots. Villa are giving away around 18 shots a game, but are capable of accepting 15 before a goal is scored. A well-organised defence like Villas is able to restrict shooting space in the box and act on reflex, there is plenty of reason to have faith in that. Teams arent simply being wasteful against the Villa either - Tyrone Mings is the league leader in shots blocked per 90 minutes and Tom Heaton in goal is a superb shot-stopper.

Well focus on goal kicks here. Arsenal have enjoyed using short goal kicks since the relaxing of the goal kick rule. Since goalkeepers can now play the ball within the box, Arsenal have allowed Bernd Leno and his defenders to liberally restart play with a short goal kick regardless of opposition intent. With Arsenal 2-0 up and facing a high press, Leno and his defenders restarted play with a short goal-kick.

The Gunners experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last league match, but they are still seen as hot favourites to pick up all three points from Sundays football game. After dropping a two-goal advantage in a 2-2 draw with Watford, Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they host Aston Villa at their Emirates Stadium.

If Arsenal start to play softly with the ball from the back, Aston Villa should consider it as a pressing trigger and aim to win the ball in the box, or push the line against Aubameyang to contain the pitch by winning an aerial duel. Its about forcing errors, or applying the pressure for unforced errors to occur. Back to the goal kick. Its about occupying headspace. Pressing isnt necessarily about winning the ball.

Truth be told, if we consider the attack of Arsenal to be a productive attack - thats going to be down to the efforts of PEA. The man capable of anything, seemingly acting on the whim of divine and unseen input. If there is an edge to Arsenal, it is because Aubameyang is providing it. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang exists as the video game striker.

Free Bets & Offers

This being the first game between these two teams in this season I had to focus on some other factors when crafting my selection. I focused on each teams form and recent results. They have more quality and talent than Aston Villa. The safest bet in this game will be on goals scored, that is my opinion after evaluating all the factors. Arsenal is a heavy favorite in this game.

In their last meeting at Emirates Stadium Arsenal recorded a 4-0 win over Aston Villa. Unai Emerys troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the newcomers and seeing that they are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the capital club. The Villans are tough to beat at home, but they are not capable of matching top-table sides on the road.
