Extensive Arsenal Match Preview/Predictions

Aston Villa travel to Arsenal in the fourth game that assistant manager Gary McAllister will be taking control of, having failed to win under the Scot in their previous three attempts. Despite having lost 3-1 to Stoke last time out, Arsene Wenger’s men are unbeaten in their last 11 games at the Emirates, although they have netted just 2 goals in their last 4 games at home. Villa welcome new signing Jean Makoun back to the squad after the midfielder recovered from a leg injury this week but will be without defender Ciaran Clark once again. The hosts welcome back a key player in Thomas Vermaelen who has been out of action for the entire season having suffered an achilles injury over nine months ago. The Belgian will replace Laurent Koscielny who picked up a thigh injury in the loss at the Britannia Stadium. Gabby Agbonlahor could return for the visitors after Emile Heskey’s bizarre behaviour against Wigan last time out, though McAllister could opt to play a 5-man midfield with the likes of the returning Makoun and Marc Albrighton both hoping for starts.
