Aston Villa vs. Arsenal Team News
Steven Gerrard, the Aston Villa manager, will be relieved to have no fitness concerns ahead of this game because he has an injury-free squad. On Saturday, Lucas Digne will be out for Aston Villa’s matchup with Arsenal. Steven Gerrard is optimistic that Calum Chambers and Douglas Luiz will be ready for selection. Calum Chambers hopes to be able to face his former club after a facial injury against West Ham.
Matty Cash will play right back with goalkeeper Emi Martinez. Defenders Tyrone Mings and Ashley Young will start for Aston Villa on the left and right.
Douglas Luiz, John McGinn, and Jacob Ramsey are all anticipated in Gerrard’s midfield line-up for Villa Park’s game. The only other viable candidate for Villa’s engine room is Morgan Sanson.
Philippe Coutinho has scored three of his four goals (and assisted on three others) in the Premier League this season. Emi Buendia is fighting for a return, but Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings are the favorites to maintain their spots in attack, slightly ahead of Coutinho.
On Saturday, the Gunners will have a short turnaround time between matchups.
Mikel Arteta is aware of this, and his substitutions indicate what and who he intends to play in the match. The good news is that Mikel Arteta’s squad is fully injury-free.
Despite having no apparent problems, Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and Alexandre Lacazette were all substituted during the defeat to Liverpool to rest up for the weekend.
As long as Takehiro Tomiyasu is long absent, the situation remains unchanged. However, the good news comes from Arteta, who recently spoke about the right-back position. The hope is that he’ll be fit. However, the international break may help him recover better.
Aston Villa vs. Arsenal Form Prediction
In the wake of the Liverpool defeat this week, Arsenal will need to show that they are up to the challenge at Villa Park on Saturday. For the Gunners to remain in contention for a place in the top four, they cannot afford to lose any points in this match.
