Although this weekend has been set aside for FA Cups matches, some outstanding EPL fixtures will also be take place.
In today’s fixture, Steven Gerrard’s men will host Mikel Arteta’s Gunners at Villa Park.
Without taking any more of our time, let’s get to work
EPL (ASTON VILLA)
Home Advantage: Our first stat in favor of the Villans.
Although Villa haven’t been in the best of form at home recently, they can still boast of a good record against Arsenal
The last 2 meetings between both sides at Villa Park have both ended in 1 nil victories for them
Extending this run to 3 wins in a roll won’t be a bad idea, will it?
And you can bet the fact above could play a huge role in motivating them to achieve this
Head To Head: Another exciting fact in favor of the Villans
The last 4 games between both sides have seen Steven Gerrard’s men suffer just 1 loss, winning the remaining 3.
Another impressive and morale-boosting stat for the home team you might want to say.
Let’s see if they can channel these motivating facts in getting a win here today.
Shifting our focus to the away side, Arsenal.
Head To Head: Birthed from the last stat in favor of Aston Villa.
Although the Villans might look the better team in the last 4 games between both sides, they are worse off if we consider a longer time frame.
In fact, Mikel Arteta’s men have won 7 of the last 10 games between both sides.
Now that’s immense, isn’t it?
Let me also mention it that that last game between these 2 also ended in favor of the Gunners.
A win today in favor of the Gunners shouldn’t be a difficult task.
Not One Of The Big 4s, No Worries: A second fact standing in favor of the Gunners.
If you’ve actually been following this Arsenal team since they upped their game after their 5 nil away loss to City, you will agree with me that they’ve been a source of huge worry for teams not listed amongst the Big 4.
And as we all know that Villa aren’t amongst the Big 4, this could just be another easy game for Arsenal.
Do you agree with me on this?
Top 4 Race: Saving the best for last.
Dealt a huge blow in their loss to Liverpool, Mikel Arteta’s men will be looking to get back on track
They know a win today will put them 4 points clear off Manchester United, strengthening their hold on Top 4.
Now they’ve got the chance to do that against Villa, don’t you think they will take full advantage of this opportunity?
If I were to pick sides based on the stats above, I will definitely go with the Gunners.
However, you don’t know what you might get when you have a Phillipe Coutinho charged Aston Villa.
