Arsenal – Aston Villa Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:30

The Hornets swarmed, the box was overloaded, Cleverley scored, and Watford ruined Emerys plan - which had worked up until this point. Arsenal could still play it short, and didnt have to pass it within the box under a press, but they passed it within the box, limited the passing range for the defender and succumbed to pressure.

This being the first game between these two teams in this season I had to focus on some other factors when crafting my selection. I focused on each teams form and recent results. They have more quality and talent than Aston Villa. The safest bet in this game will be on goals scored, that is my opinion after evaluating all the factors. Arsenal is a heavy favorite in this game.

Arsenal vs Aston Villa Score Prediction

The Villans are tough to beat at home, but they are not capable of matching top-table sides on the road. Unai Emerys troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the newcomers and seeing that they are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the capital club. In their last meeting at Emirates Stadium Arsenal recorded a 4-0 win over Aston Villa.

Theres no reason as to why not. Why not Villa? Arsenal havent started off in an impressive manner and we know that anything can happen in football. Again, Villa might fancy a point here (or more, if they are looking at the game tape of Arsenals last match against a Watford side who have just been clipped by Manchester City).

Arsenal vs Aston Villa Correct Score Prediction

They were stunned, with a 2:1 home loss to Bournemouth and have not recovered since. That was not a start they have wished for. Aston Villa will be fighting hard to avoid being relegated this season. They will be missing Chester and Kodjia in this game. Aston VIlla will try to surprise here and somehow avoid third defeat early in the season.

At all. The name Arsenal should strike fear into Villa fans worldwide. In the new modern era of football (marked at about 2015), Villa havent been able to question Arsenal. Youll have to recall Gabby Agbonlahor, Antonio Luna, Olof Mellberg and more to consider the last time Villa threatened Arsenal. Simply put, Aston Villa havent enjoyed a good match against the north Londoners in a long while.

In the scatter graph above, produced by the excellent Experimental361, we can see that Aston Villa head the graph and fall into the competent but busy category when defensive effectiveness is highlighted. This shows that Aston Villa, more than most teams, are capable of absorbing shots. Villa are giving away around 18 shots a game, but are capable of accepting 15 before a goal is scored. A well-organised defence like Villas is able to restrict shooting space in the box and act on reflex, there is plenty of reason to have faith in that. Teams arent simply being wasteful against the Villa either - Tyrone Mings is the league leader in shots blocked per 90 minutes and Tom Heaton in goal is a superb shot-stopper.

Features

Aston Villa will be very wary of this, especially since they have conceded 4 goals in their 2 Premier League away days since their promotion. After 5 games they find themselves on 4 points, only outside the drop zone on goal difference. Overall, its been a pretty subdued start for The Villains, with their heavy summer investment yet to yield any real returns.
