The Gunners are finding their feet after a slow start to the Premier League season and now boast one of the best defensive records in the league. Mikel Arteta has no major injury woes to content with and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Thomas Partey both expected to return, having been rested midweek.
As for the Villains, winger Bertrand Traore is out with a groin strain following the defeat at Southampton. But if things go Dean Smith’s way, Villa could seal three consecutive Premier League away wins for the first time since April 2010.
With both teams needing to keep their momentum going, this could turn out to be one of the highlights of the weekend. Arsenal vs Aston Villa kicks off 7.15 GMT on Sunday 8th November.

Watch Arsenal vs Aston Villa from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Premier League services, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
