SKY BET: Get Bukayo Saka to have 2+ shots on target at 11/2 – CLAIM HERE
Saka leads Arsenal’s goal and assist tallies this season and has been instrumental for the Gunners in their title challenge this season, scoring his side’s only goal of the game in their crucial top of the table clash with Man City on Wednesday.
Arsenal lost the game 3-1 at home to Manchester City, which knocked the Gunners off the top the table for the first time since before the World Cup, and has now left the north London side with three defeats in their last four matches.
Mikel Arteta’s side had a five point cushion at the top of the table just a fortnight ago, but a three match span in which they picked up just one point means that the Gunners now trail the Citizens on goal difference.
Arsenal do still have a game in hand over their Man City, a home game against Everton at the start of next month, and will hope to still be within reach of Pep Guardiola’s side by then to reclaim top spot.
The Gunners will retain top spot if they avoid defeat at Villa Park on Saturday lunchtime, and a win would pile the pressure on Man City, who face a tough trip to the City Ground later in the afternoon.
Aston Villa have also hit a small slump in form after a resurgence in results following the appointment of Unai Emery as manager.
The Villans were just a point above the relegation zone when the Spaniard was hired, and just five wins in his first seven games saw the club climb up 11th and within touching distance of the top half of the table.
Defeats in their last two matches, against Leicester and Manchester City, has hindered their progress slightly, and a visit of title challengers Arsenal isn’t the ideal match get back to winning ways.
The Gunners have won the last three meetings between the two sides, but Emery is unbeaten against both Arsenal and Arteta in his managerial career.
