We are entering the 16th matchday in the Premier League season, and we are doing so with a great match coming our way, as the first-placed Arsenal will face off against the third, Aston Villa.

The Villians come undefeated in their last four matches, with ten wins, two draws, and three losses in total, and having recently bested Manchester City and Tottenham in their most recent clashes.

On the opposing side, the Gunners come into this clash with eleven wins, three draws, and a single loss. They carry excellent momentum with a four-match winning streak but now have to face a huge test.

Where Can I Watch it? 


Why Bet on Aston Villa?

Aston Villa clinched the standout result of an incredible season for the club on Wednesday, leapfrogging Manchester City to go third in the Premier League table with a deserved 1-0 win over the champions at Villa Park.

Unai Emery’s team will attempt to repeat the trick against leaders Arsenal on Saturday with club history in their sights. They are still black horses for Champions League qualification, but it’s no secret that a win here could even put them in the picture for title contention.

Why Bet on Arsenal?

Having already beaten Manchester United, Man City, and Brentford with late goals this term, Arsenal enjoyed their most dramatic finish yet in midweek as Declan Rice’s header – after 96 minutes and 23 seconds –broke Luton Town’s hearts in a 4-3 triumph at Kenilworth Road, the latest in a series of goalfests to grace the Premier League in recent weeks.

The Gunners have developed their style of play to a less flashy one. However, they seem more efficient in saving energy in the games, requiring less than 100% to win, something required to withstand the late-season siege of teams like Manchester City.

Final Betting Analysis: Aston Villa vs. Arsenal

The last visiting team to avoid defeat at Villa Park in the Premier League? That would be Arsenal, who claimed a thrilling 4-2 win there in mid-February. 

That is the only defeat former Arsenal boss Emery has suffered in five managerial meetings with the Gunners, though three of those encounters have finished level.

Villa Park has also traditionally been a happy hunting ground for the Gunners, who have only lost on two of their last 21 league trips there (12 wins, seven defeats), though those two defeats have come in their last four visits.

Though the leaders will be facing an actual challenge, they should get the fifth victory in their streak as they visit Villa Park for this clash.

Go for a victory for the visitors at +110. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $110 for a total payout of $210.
