The first match of this weekend will take place at Villa Park on Saturday at noon between Aston Villa and Arsenal, who both suffered 3-1 losses to Manchester City in their most recent Premier League clashes. The Gunners have dropped to second place but might easily retake first place in this division, while Unai Emery’s current team is ranked 11th in the premier flight.
Many people were unsure of Man City’s instant response to the numerous accusations made against them for purported financial violations, but the champions instead replied like champions should, making Aston Villa the latest victims of an onslaught from the Etihad.
Villa has scored in all 11 of its competitive games played under Emery, a former Arsenal and Villarreal manager. But, allowing seven goals in their last two games does not augur well for their next matchup with the championship contenders.
Both teams have scored in each of the hosts’ last five Premier League home games, but only one of those games has resulted in a victory for Emery, who is already aware of the threats that his former employers will present in the West Midlands.
Arsenal suffered a similar beating at the hands of the champions on Wednesday night, knocking the Gunners off their perch at the top of the table as defensive errors plagued them. It was Villa’s turn to lose 3-1 to Man City at the weekend, and it was Arsenal’s turn to suffer the same defeat at the hands of the champions at the weekend.
