Arsenal will entertain Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium this Wednesday night as they looked to pick up another three points at home. The Gunners managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 win over Fulham in the London derby last Saturday. Hence, they will be full of confidence ahead of this game and would be desperate to keep their 100% winning record going in the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta could stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation and will probably be inclined to name an unchanged first XI for this game. Hence, we can once again expect to see Gabriel Jesus lead the line for the North London giants up top.

4-2-3-1 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face Aston Villa

Defence

Aaron Ramsdale will feature in between the sticks for Arsenal after he allowed one goal in his last league appearance. Gabriel will continue to function alongside William Saliba at the centre of Arteta’s defence as they try to keep the Villans at bay throughout the game.

Ben White will fill in at right-back while Kieran Tierney hopes to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will be eager to get forward and offer adequate support to the front players.

Rob Holding will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he provides cover for the centre-half positions.

Midfield

Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny will get the nod to anchor the midfield for the Gunners as they look to establish their dominance over the opposition at the centre of the park.

The in-form trio of Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka will play just ahead of them as part of Arteta’s attack.

Odegaard will carry most of the creative workload for Arsenal while both Martinelli and Saka try to put their pace to good use on the flanks.

Fabio Viera and Emile Smith Rowe will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second 45 minutes if needed.

Attack

Gabriel Jesus will lead the charge for the Gunners on his own in the final third. The Brazilian striker failed to register a goal versus Fulham, so he will be desperate to get back to his goal-scoring ways when he laces up to face off against the Aston Villa defenders this Wednesday night.

Eddie Nketiah will have to be content with a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine as a late-game substitute.
