Arsenal v Aston Villa Premier League kick off time, TV channel, news

Arsenal will be aiming to stay top of the table when they take on struggling Aston Villa on the Premier League TV schedule this week.

The Gunners have made a great start to the 2022/23 season with four wins from four games marking real signs of progress since last season.

New captain Martin Odegaard has led by example with three goals in four games to inspire his side to victory and Mikel Arteta will demand consistency from his leading men going forward.

Aston Villa have lost three of their first four games, all to sides below 12th in the current table, leaving Steven Gerrard under increasing scrutiny.

The Liverpool legend had a mixed debut campaign but is now under pressure to have his star squad fire on all cylinders or he could face an uncertain future.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Aston Villa

Arsenal are looking like the real deal this season. Simply, they have been the best team in the Premier League after four rounds of matches and there is no reason to believe they cannot maintain their form. A few injuries have dented their options, but they still have a starting XI capable of taking on almost anyone. They need to win all of their games against teams they are supposed to beat to have a chance of challenging Liverpool and Manchester City by May.

Our prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Aston Villa (2/13 at bet365)
