English Premier League: Aston Villa vs Arsenal: Preview, starting line-up, injuries, result

On Saturday afternoon, Aston Villa hosts Arsenal in their Premier League Round 24 match at Villa Park.

Aston Villa is heading into the match after losing 3-1 to Manchester City in the last Premier League match, while Arsenal lost 3-1 to coach Pep Guardiola’s team.

Unai Emery’s team is currently 11th in the Premier League table and has been inconsistent so far this season.

On the other hand, Arsenal are currently second in the league table and have exceeded expectations so far this season.

Arsenal has a good historical record against Aston Villa and has won 86 out of the 200 matches played between the two teams, compared to 69 victories for Aston Villa.

Aston Villa team news:
Aston Villa will not be with Diego Carlos in this match as he recovers from achilles surgery while Jed Steer is also working his way back from a calf problem.

Tyrone Mings will be available for selection after missing Aston Villa’s loss to Manchester City due to an unspecified issue.

Mings’ potential return would see Calum Chambers dropped to the bench after an underwhelming display against Manchester City.

Bertrand Traore will likely play his way into competition as he shakes off a knee injury.

Possible starting lineup for Aston Villa:
Martinez, Young, Konsa, Mings, Moreno, Kamara, Luiz, Ramsey, Watkins, Bailey, Buendía.

Arsenal team news:
There is still a chance that Thomas Partey will recover in time to face Aston Villa after he missed his team’s Premier League defeat against Manchester City due to a muscle injury.

However, Jorginho was one of Arsenal’s standouts against City and would start again if needed against Villa.

Mohamed Elneny and Gabriel Jesus are definitely out while recovering from knee surgeries, while Emile Smith Rowe remains a doubt with his recent groin concern.

Arteta’s decision to start Takehiro Tomiyasu against the Citizens was not justified, so Ben White should return against Unai Emery’s men, while a quick turnaround would also benefit Leandro Trossard’s chances of earning a start over Gabriel Martinelli.

Arsenal potential start:
Ramsdal, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Xhaka, Jorginho, Odegaard, Trossard, Nketiah and Saka.

The Daily Mail predicts Arsenal’s victory over Aston Villa. The match will end 2-1 in favor of the North London club.

The kick-off time for the Aston Villa and Arsenal match is 1:30 pm.
