Aston Villa v Arsenal: Gunners can extend great record at Villa Park
Arsenal will have to bounce back from their Dortmund disappointment the hard way when they travel to in-form Aston Villa.
Paul Lambert’s side are unbeaten in their opening four Premier League matches and boast a win over Liverpool last time out.
But the Gunners are 4/5 favourites with Ladbrokes for victory, while Villa are 10/3 to continue their excellent to start to the season with the draw available at 11/4.

With just one win in their last six matches it’s not been quite the start to the season Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger were expecting but with a trip to Villa Park up next things could be looking up for the Gunners.
Aston Villa may be the surprise package of the season so far with three wins from their opening four league matches but Wenger’s men have an excellent record in front of the Villa faithful.
The north London club are unbeaten in their last 16 visits to Villa Park and we are backing them to extend that record and get their campaign back on track.
Following on from the theme of Arsenal’s good record in Birmingham against the Villans, in three of the last four of Aston Villa’s home meetings with the Gunners the visitors have picked up all three points with both teams finding the net.
And with seven of the last nine fixtures between the two sides in all competitions featuring goals at both ends this looks a bet to be on the right side of this Saturday.
Goals from Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud were enough to cancel out Christian Benteke’s strike the last time these two side met and with two of the last three encounters between the two teams at Villa Park ending at 2-1, it could pay to back the result ending this way once again.
Four of the last 12 of these fixtures have ended with the Gunners taking all three points back to north London with a 2-1 scoreline and at 7/1 with Ladbrokes it can provide plenty of value should history repeat itself.
