Aston Villa entertain Arsenal on Tuesday night and the pressure will be firmly on Aston Villa to win if they are to survive the dreaded drop. Villa trail Watford by three points and have a four-goal inferior goal difference to the Hornets. But if Watford get a drubbing off Manchester City earlier on Tuesday evening and Villa win, that could see Villa leapfrog Watford before the final games of the season.
Villa could also be meeting Arsenal at just the right time as Arsenal’s best chance of playing in Europe next season looks to be by winning the FA Cup on August 1. That could mean Mikel Arteta is tempted to rest key players for this match. That’s why a win for Aston Villa is our Aston Villa vs Arsenal tip.
Arsenal have broken Villa’s hearts already once this season, as Villa lead 2-1 at the Emirates earlier in the season for most of the game. But late goals by Chambers and Aubameyang gave Arsenal a 3-2 win. It could also be argued that Arsenal are a much-improved side under Arteta’s leadership, especially in defence. But the players will surely want to avoid injury and fatigue with Wembley beckoning and it’s easy to envisage Villa being more committed.
Having looked dead and buried two games ago, Villa will also take confidence from their last two results. They beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in their last home game and came within three minutes of collecting all three-points at Everton last time before having to settle for a draw.
That little bit of extra confidence and a lack of obvious motivation for Arsenal could just swing this in favour of Villa and give them a fighting chance of survival. That’s why our tip for Aston Villa vs Arsenal is Aston Villa to win.
