Arsenal v Aston Villa team news

Arsenal: The Gunners are coming through their patch of injuries, with just long term absentees Calum Chambers, Gabriel Martinelli and Pablo Mari sidelined.

Reiss Nelson has a knock but wouldn't have been likely to start anyway. Nicolas Pepe is pushing hard for Willian's place in the XI but involvement in the Europa League may have scuppered his chances of getting into the starting line-up for this week at least.

Aston Villa: Smith has settled on an XI he believes can carry his side to safety this season, so don't expect many changes.

Bertrand Traore picked up an injury last weekend after being given the nod to start. He was replaced by Trezeguet, who enjoyed a good day out, and is expected to regain his place here.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Aston Villa

Don't expect fireworks from Arsenal, they've been relatively muted going forward this season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang far short of his best form.

However, a well-executed – yet narrow – win over Man Utd will give Arsenal players plenty of heart going into the rest of the campaign.

Arsenal don't appear capable of demolishing anyone right now, but they should be able to find a way through a porous Villa backline at the Emirates.

Our prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Aston Villa
