Villa vs Arsenal Prediction and Betting Summary
Arsenal vs Aston Villa predictions and betting : Recent form
Arsenal’s season has been up and down just like it was in 2019. Despite winning FA Cup and Community Shield last season, they didn’t have a particular good season in England which has continued in 2020.
They started off their campaign with wins against Fulham and West Ham but fell against the defending champions Liverpool at Anfield. They came back with a win against Sheffield United but lost to Manchester City and Leicester City in October.
A win against the red devils would have done a huge favor in boosting their confidence but they will have to carry this momentum in the upcoming games.
It is quite ironic that Aston Villa have played some high-quality football when they have played top teams like Liverpool and Leicester but have resorted to being complacent when they face other teams.
They were unbeaten in the first four games which included one of their biggest wins against Liverpool by a 7-2 margin and an important victory over Leicester City. But from then on, they have lost 3-0 against Leeds United and conceded 4 times against Southampton to succumb to their second defeat of the season.
This has dropped them to 8th spot in the table and a big performance is awaiting them on Sunday.

Willian’s lack of scoring has been a major concern for the gunners waiting for a turn-around in the coming games. The Brazilian has 2 assists in 6 outings along with an 87.8% pass accuracy so far.
