Arsenal v Aston Villa

Postby Conner99 » Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:17 pm

Arsenal managed to beat Sunderland 1-0 thanks to a goal from Santi Cazorla , the red card for Carl Jenkinson though meant a torrid last 20mins for Szczesny and the back four ..Arsene Wenger was relieved at the final whistle as the 3pts kept his side just outside the top four .



Aston Villa moved out of the bottom three with a 2-1 win over West Ham at Villa Park , two quick goals in the second half was enough to get the 3 pts and lift some of the pressure from manager Paul Lambert , he commented after the match how important the win was .."it was huge"

Did you know that Arsenal have won only two of their last six home games against Aston Villa in the Barclays Premier League.

Any comments or predictions?

I think Wenger would have no other option but to resign if Villa won at the Emirates but I don't think that will happen.

Arsenal 3-1 Aston Villa.

Team news

Full backs Sagna and Gibbs are both out but Monreal is available again and should play in his usual left back position.

Play maker Charles N'Zogbia is back for Aston Villa along with striker Gabriel Agbonlahore but Richard Dunne is still sidelined.

Any comments or predictions?

Honestly our games are so hard to call these days but I would hope normality will resume and we'll win this relatively comfortably.

2-1 Arsenal

Aston Villa should be afraid ...very afraid .....Arsenal will annihalate them 8-0 with Theo Walcott scoring 5 goals in a 4 min burst ...Monreal and Cazorla will get one each , then right at the end Wilshire will bang in two within 30 seconds of each other ....

The newspaper headlines will read next day .`Wenger the Gr-eight` .

With Aston Villas form :lol: I can see in my crystal ball that they may well give Arsenal a scare, but no other result than an Arsenal win here. I wouldn't be shocked if Villa got a draw here, but I wouldn't be putting my money on it.

Cazorla with a goal.

Good call!

We should be doing much better at home against a team like Villa but I'll take the three points.

Nice prediction Stan :wink:

I guess with Arsenal being just 1 point now behind Tottenham you will all be supporting West Ham on Monday night!

Whats happened to Walcott?

He was demanding to be played as a central striker and when he finally gets his wish he couldn't score in a brothel.

Well done, Arsenal. I've got a strange feeling Arsenal will, yet again, get into the CL.

A much needed win for the Gooners, lets face it, anything less might have put Arsene under some real pressure. OK, I'm a Spurs fan, but this interview by Wenger after the game, a man in denial? Arsene, you don't have a leader on the park apart from Wilshire, and you were f*cking dismantled by Bayern Munich. Face facts man!

Oh yeah, and after watching MOTD this morning it looks like the Arse were quite lucky to get the W. Villa had enough chances to win the game.

It was indeed a lucky win for Arsenal and Aston Villa should consider themselves unlucky not have left the library without at least a point.

are you sure you were watching Arsenal v Aston Villa .. :shock: i just watched the game and we had enough chances in the first half to have easily won the games ..in the end 24 shots on goal to 5 shots on goal for Villa tells you Arsenal had more than enough chances to win it . The problem for us was again defensive ...a ball hooved up the field by Villa and we could not take care of it ...nobody closed down Weimann and Szczesny should not have allowed that shot to slip though his arms ..

Why do people always call it a lucky win when a team is clearly on top in a game yet cannot quite wrap the game up until right at the end , we had to work hard for the 3pts ..in the end it was a great set up by Monreal and Cazorla put it away nicely . There was nothing `lucky` about the two goals and the win was well deserved .

Granted that highlights can sometimes 'mask' a game, but in that second half Villa ripped into the Arsenal defence three times with (if you're a Gooner) alarming ease. OK, to be expected if you are up against a 'form' team, but Villa? At home? Jeezy Peeps!
