Aston Villa faces Arsenal on Tuesday, July 21st at Villa Park for an English Premier League match.
Aston Villa is in the danger zone, and if the season as of now, Villa would be relegated. Aston Villa is in 18th place in the Premier League, three points behind Watford for safety. Watford will also be playing on Tuesday, so if Aston Villa is able to win and Watford loses by a decent score, Villa can leapfrog Watford. It will not be easy for Aston Villa, as they have to take on a surging Arsenal team that has won three of its last five matches. In Aston Villa's last match at Everon, Villa was able to earn a point in a 1-1 draw. Aston Villa was winning this match until the 87th minute, so a draw was certainly a huge disappointment for a team in desperation like Aston Villa.
Arsenal was able to defeat the former Premier League champions in Manchester City during the English FA Cup semifinals on July 18th. The final score in that game was 2-0, as striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was able to score two beauties on the counter-attack for Arsenal. Arsenal will now face Chelsea in the championship of the FA Cup. In terms of the Premier League, Arsenal is in 10th place in the standings, one point behind Burnley. Arsenal can certainly pick up six points in their last two matches, as the team faces Villa and Watford to end the season. Arsenal has high hopes for a competitive finish in the Premier League next year, but this season has to be seen as a major disappointment for the Gunners.
The last time Aston Villa and Arsenal met was on September 22nd of 2019, in which Arsenal defeated Aston Villa by the final score of 3-2.
I expect both teams to score in this match, as I think both teams should be able to break through at least once. I really like the way Arsenal has been playing as of late, especially in their latest performance in the FA Cup. I will take Arsenal to win this match, but it should be close.
