    Premier League: Aston Villa v Arsenal LIVE!

    4311788

    Probable teams…

    Aston Villa (4-4-2) Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Luna, Bacuna, Westwood, Delph, Weimann, Benteke, Agbonlahor.

    Ron Vlaar and Nathan Baker will face late fitness tests after last weekend’s FA Cup third round loss to Sheffield United. It’s likely Christian Benteke will start, despite going 785 minutes without a Premier League goal.

    Arsenal (4-2-3-1) Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Flamini, Ozil, Wilshere, Cazorla, Giroud.

    Olivier Giroud should have recovered from an ankle problem and illness to start up top for the Gunners, who are now without Theo Walcott for the remainder of the season. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could also be back in the squad.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Christian Benteke fires in his second penalty as Villa come from behind to stun Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates.

     

    Fantasy Football Danger Man…

    Having had nine days rest since beating Spurs in the FA Cup, the Gunners and the jaded-looking Mesut Ozil should be back up to full strength. Expect the German to run riot.

    Some stats to get your head around:

    Victory in this game would be Aston Villa’s 300th in Barclays Premier League history.

    Arsenal are unbeaten in 14 Barclays Premier League trips to Villa Park, winning seven and drawing seven.
