Aston Villa v Arsenal team news

Aston Villa: Kortney Hause could return to the line-up if Dean Smith wants to re-jig his defence.

Neil Taylor is a doubt, otherwise expect a similar XI.

Arsenal: Shkodran Mustafi is likely to miss out, but Rob Holding will step in comfortably.

Expect little in the way of changes, but it will be interesting to see how Mikel Arteta treats the league now that their season hinges on the FA Cup final.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Arsenal

It's now or never for Villa. A defeat is not calamitous in terms of points, but it would damage their goal difference to a point of potentially no return with one game left.

Smith must deliver the inspiration team talk of a lifetime to whip his squad up for this one.

They came so close to recording an immense victory over Everton, and they will give this one an almighty shot, but Arsenal may just have too much for them.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 1-2 Arsenal

(Arsenal to win 2-1: 17/2 at bet365)
