Arsenal v Aston Villa Betting: Gunners are odds on to bounce back to form

Arsenal will look to bounce back to form when they welcome Aston Villa to the Emirates for their Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon. The Gunners are set to endure another trophy-less season after they were humbled by Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday and that came on the back of a humiliating FA Cup exit to Blackburn last Saturday.

Arsene Wenger saw his side lose 1-0 to Blackburn last weekend before going down 3-1 to Bayern in the first leg of their last-sixteen tie in Europe and he will be hoping for a big reaction from his players this weekend. They are 3/10 odds on for a match against a Villa side who are 10/1 outsiders with Bet365 and prime relegation candidates.

Wenger is under increasing pressure following a dreadful week for the Gunners and all they have left to play for is a top-four finish in the Premier League, where they currently sit in fifth place, just four points behind Spurs. They will no doubt look to Jack Wilshere to provide inspiration from midfield after his virtual 'one-man show' against Bayern and he is 12/1 to score first against Villa.

Defeat to Villa is unthinkable for Wenger, who continues to be backed in the next manager to be sacked betting. Aston Villa's manager Paul Lambert knows how Wenger is feeling as he has been under huge pressure in recent weeks following humiliating exits to Bradford and Millwall in the League Cup and FA Cup respectively.

Villa find themselves down in 17th place in the league, just a point and a place above the relegation zone, and only a narrow 2-1 win over a very poor West Ham last time out has given them some breathing space. Christian Benteke continues to plough a lone furrow up front as he has scored six in his last five and he is 9/2 to score Aston Villa's first goal in this latest Arsenal v Villa fixture.

Villa will fancy their chances of scoring against a suspect Arsenal defence and both teams to score can be backed at 10/11 this weekend. However, Villa have been woeful defensively this term as they are without a clean sheet in 15, conceding 35 in that time, and they might struggle to keep Arsenal out.

The Midlands side have conceded 13 league goals in the final 15 minutes of games this season, while Arsenal have scored 12 during that time, with B365 going 5/6 for a goal to be scored after 77:59 minutes on Saturday. Villa have let leads slip or conceded goals in the final six minutes in four of their last six outings and Arsenal are a tempting 11/2 to come from behind and win at the Emirates.

Arsenal's form before the defeat to Blackburn was actually quite impressive as they were unbeaten in five, winning four. They may have won only two of their last six at home against Villa but they can bounce back to form against this current Villa outfit, with B365 going 7/4 that they win with a handicap of -2 goals.
