Arsenal will look to strengthen their top-four spot in the Premier League when they make the trip to face Aston Villa at Villa Park this weekend, knowing that a win over their hosts will only solidify their Champions League prospects for next season.
The Gunners may have been felled by Liverpool last time out but they still have games in hand over their chasing rivals – and Mikel Arteta will know that they cannot afford too many more slip-ups.

Steven Gerrard’s Villa Park revolution has been one of the stories of the season, with the former Rangers boss arriving to boost their fortunes and move them up to mid-table.
If he maintains his touch, the Midlands outfit could even be in the mix for Europe next year – but they still have a campaign to finish here and will be out to be a thorn in Arsenal’s side.
Predicted Aston Villa starting XI: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Young; McGinn, Sanson, Ramsey; Coutinho; Ings, Watkins.
|Goalkeepers||Leno, Ramsdale, Okonkwo|
|Defenders||Tierney, White, Gabriel, Holding, Cedric Soares, Tomiyasu, Tavares|

Mikel Arteta’s men were downed by Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasing Reds last time out, but rather than consider it a setback, the Gunners will surely use the expected stumble to iron out their kinks.
