Arsenal vs Aston Villa predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture tonight

Arsenal host Aston Villa after Mikel Arteta’s side won at Old Trafford last week.

Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the winner after being without a goal since the opening day win at Fulham, and he’ll be desperate to net his first home league goal of the season against Villa.

After an exceptional start to the campaign, Dean Smith’s side have suffered in recent weeks and conceded six goals at home across 90 minutes against Leeds and Southampton.

Despite that, Aston Villa will fancy their chances in north London – only Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have won more Premier League games at the Emirates than the Villains.

Here’s everything you need to know before the match.

When is it?

The fixture will kick-off at 7:15pm GMT at the Emirates Stadium.

How can I watch it?

The match will be televised on Sky Sports Box Office on a pay-per-view basis.

What is the team news?

Mikel Arteta will welcome back Thomas Partey, Gabriel and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the starting side after earning a rest for the Europa League. Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli both remain out, while Reiss Nelson may not be fit in time for Sunday.

Dean Smith will be without Bertrand Traore, who suffered a groin injury in the home defeat to Southampton. The summer signing may return to action after the international break, alongside Tom Heaton. Wesley is out whilst Kortney Hause is a doubt for the trip to north London.
