Arsenal will be looking to return to winning ways today when they take on Aston Villa at Villa Park in the Premier League.
The Gunners have drawn their last three league games and suffered a 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in Germany in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The performance against the Bundesliga outfit was Arsenal’s worst of the season so far, and manager Arsene Wenger will want his players to bounce back in style.
The North London club have not been helped by injuries, but it cannot be denied that their midfielders have not played to the levels that they can.
Heading into today’s encounter, Villa find themselves second in the league table with 10 points from four matches, just two points behind leaders Chelsea. In fact, Paul Lambert’s side can go top with a win as Jose Mourinho’s team are in action on Sunday.
It will not be easy for Arsenal to pick up a win today, but one can rest assured that the Gunners will give their all to do just that.
Here is how Villa and Arsenal will line up today:
