Aston+Villa+v+ArsenalAfter losing in the Champions kickoff 0-2 against Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal is seeking their second win in the fifth week of the Barclays Premier League against Aston Villa. The game will be next Saturday 20 at Villa Park at 14:00 ET.

Though the Villans are locals and arrive at the game as the second place of the Premier League after three wins, a draw and with +3 on the goal difference, they are not the favorites in the odds for this game. They have +400 for the win. On the other hand, Arsene’s Wenger weak team is at -125 and a draw is pay with 275.

This Premier League beginning has not been the best for the Arsenal, and they need with urgency a win in order to get confidence on their work. The Gunners have had only one win this Premier League season and was back in the first game against Crystal Palace. The rest of the matches were draws against Everton, Leicester and Manchester City. Their goal difference is only +1.

For this game, the strikers to be care off are Danny Welbeck in the Gunners and Darren Bent in the Villans. The first one has scored three goals in their last two Premiers League appearances against Aston Villa. The second one has scored eight goals in the last 11 games against Arsenal.

Jack Wilshere is doubt for this game since he turned his ankle last Tuesday against BVB in the Champions League.

“It’s difficult to say how bad it is because I am a bit cautious, normally it’s not very bad but because of his history I’m a bit cautious. Apart from that no player I took off was injured” said Wenger after the Champions League loss.
