EPL: AVFC vs AFC






Arsenal's penultimate match in their 2019-20 Premier League season saw them go to Villa Park to host Aston Villa on Tuesday night. The Gunners have won two Liverpool giants in the Premier League and Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final recently. Villa need to win in this match and wait for Watford to beat Man City to reach the group safely

Aston Villa have lost to Arsenal all the last 5 meetings and even conceded 18 times, 4 games can not be scored and only scored against the London club in a dramatic 2-3 loss in the first leg of this season. . Villa in the last two consecutive rounds were unbeaten when they won Crystal Palace 2-0 at home with a recent draw with Everton despite Erzi Konsa's lead in the 72nd minute but equalized at the end of the match. This is their seventh draw from the start of the season and Dean Smith's army has only 31 points, 3 points behind the safety position, they need to soon improve their second worst defense with 66 goals, The last 7 rounds have only kept 1 clean sheet, the last round they will clash directly with West Ham which is 4 points higher than them.

Arsenal suddenly defeated defending champion Man City with a score of 2-0 with a double of captain Aubameyang but the trio of players Alexandre Lacazette, David Luiz and Granit Xhaka created an extremely good vertical axis for the Gunners. Defender center-back David Luiz had a superb performance when he accompanied the opponent's detonator Sterling, blocked Gabriel Jesus and even got the highest score in this match. While the former captain with his steel has fed up the technical midfielders of Man City, Lacazette in the center position has made a wall and attracted people for rich Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. . They reached the FA Cup final after three years of waiting and aiming for the 14th title in this arena. In the last 8 matches, they only lost to rivals Tottenham and are 2 points behind Spur even though ranked 10th. Aubameyang is seeing BLD Arsenal break his long-term binding rule despite being at the age of 30 after the recent dazzling performance. Arsenal's injury list is still Ozil and star Martinelli after last knee surgery last month, with goalkeeper Leno also injured his right knee in a defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion.
