If ever there was a Premier League side ready to bounce into the weekend’s fixtures, it’s Arsenal who are still on cloud nine after getting out of jail against Olympiakos on Wednesday evening.
Facing an Aston Villa side in no form whatsoever on Sunday afternoon, the Gunners are red hot favourites for victory with Arsene Wenger’s men having not tasted defeat in their last 16 journeys to Villa Park.
Winning 0-3 at Villa last season, all three goals came in a crazy three-minute spell in the first half and a repeat result would keep the Gunners’ positive momentum going in the lead up to the busy Christmas fixture programme.
The interesting sub-plot is that Wenger will go up alongside one of his former players in Remi Garde who represented the club between 1996 and 1999.
Despite being favourites for the win, Villa did earn at least a 1-1 draw at a tough venue away at Southampton last time out so perhaps this is something to build upon for the Villans.
Arsenal are more than used to putting their supporters through an emotional rollercoaster most seasons but at the moment, we’re cashing in on the current good vibes amongst Gooners in the Football Transfer Tavern to ask them just who are the five most improved Arsenal stars this season?
