Confirmed: Arsenal v Aston Villa line-ups

Here is how Arsenal and Aston Villa will line up for the Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium…

Arsenal will be looking to continue their impressive run of form and get the better of Aston Villa at home this afternoon.

The Gunners will head into the Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium having won their last four matches in all competitions.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently sixth in the league table with 39 points from 22 matches, just three points behind Southampton, who are fourth and play later today.

Meanwhile, Villa are struggling for survival in the English top flight and find themselves 16th in the standings with 22 points from as many games at the moment.

Paul Lambert’s side are just three points above the relegation zone and are in real danger of dropping down to the Championship at the end of the season.

Arsenal will be heavy favourites to win today, but the North London outfit should not get too complacent. If the Gunners concede an early goal, then it could become tricky for them.
