Quick Facts

  • Arsenal managed to keep three clean sheets in last four home fixtures
  • Gunners are after their 12th home win of the season

Arsenal vs Aston Villa Prediction

Arsenal aim to cement third position in the Premier League standings and they will certainly give their all to finish the season in great manner. The Gunners are a real force to be reckoned with at home and considering that rock-bottom Aston Villa recorded their last league win back on 6 February, 2015, I am tempted to put my money on the capital club. The Villans are on a six-game losing run on the road and they are unlikely to upset Arsene Wenger’s troops at Emirates Stadium.
