The Gunners surrendered top spot in the table to title rivals Manchester City in midweek as the defending champions sealed a 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.
However, Arsenal can regain the edge in the title race with a positive result at Villa Park, as they come up against former boss Unai Emery.

Aston Villa vs Arsenal prediction, odds
Arsenal cannot afford another slip-up, as they look to keep pace with City in the run-in, but they are without a Premier League win in their last three games.
However, they take on a Villa side coming off the back of successive Premier League losses, and with one clean sheet in their last five league outings.
Prediction: Arsenal to win 2-1
|Aston Villa win||+350||10/3||4.25||+328|
|Over/Under 2.5 goals||-115 / -120||10/11 – 4/5||1.95 – 1.85||-112 / -118|
|Both teams to score Y/N||-122 / -115||4/5 – 10/11||1.80 – 1.91||-133 / -118|
