• Aston Villa has had their best season start in ages and currently stand 2nd at EPL after 3 wins and 1 draw, including a great victory at Liverpool. However, they were eliminated from Capitol One Cup by a weak Leyton Orient.
• Arsenal stands 7th after 1 win and 3 draws against Man. City or Everton. They were dominated last Tuesday by Dortmund at Champions League and lost their first game 2-0. They haven’t won any of their last 5 road games and will miss Giroud, Walcott, Debuchy and Sanogo for this game.
• Arsenal has beat Aston Villa in 3 of their last 5 clashes.
• Arsenal should win here to keep the pace with Chelsea, already 6 points ahead. Aston Villa has been great lately and will arrive more rested to this game and I like them to at least get a draw at Birmingham today, though this is a tossup pick.
