Aston Villa face off against Arsenal as they travel to the Emirates Stadium hoping to get better results unlike their previous match. The Villans come into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat against West Ham United last weekend. The Gunners continue their winning streak grabbing their fourth win against Fulham in their previous Premier League fixture.
Steven Gerrard will name a strong line up against the North Londoners as he utilises the 4-2-3-1 formation, with Tyrone Mings replacing Calum Chambers in the backline.
4-3-2-1 Aston Villa Predicted Line Up Vs Arsenal
Emiliano Martinez will operate in between the sticks for the Villans as he looks to keep a clean sheet in this away encounter. Ezri Konsa could partner up with Tyrone Mings at the heart of Aston Villa’s backline as they look to produce a solid display against the Gunners.
Matty Cash could fill in at the right-back position while Lucas Digne looks to impress on the opposite flank as the left-back. Both of them would be expected to stretch the opposition in the final third and remain compact defensively.
Calum Chambers will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the centre-back positions.
Gerrard’s midfield trio would comprise of John McGinn, Boubacar Kamara and Douglas Luiz at the centre of the park. All three of them would need to be efficient when distributing possession in the centre of the park.
Phillipe Coutinho will play as an attacking midfielder looking to create enough chances for the two-man strike team. He will be allowed to roam the attacking third and will need to make some decisive passes to split the opposition defence.
Jacob Ramsey would take a spot on the bench alongside Emiliano Buendia as they might come on to make an impact in the latter half if required.
Danny Ings will form a striking partnership with Ollie Watkins as both of them will need to step up and be more productive in front of the goal if they wish to produce a positive result for their team.
Leon Bailey will act as a reserve as he could come to make an impact if Gerrard looks to opt for a change of attacking scenario in the second half.
