Arsenal will be looking to extend their 100% start to the 2022/23 Premier League campaign when they welcome Aston Villa to the Emirates for their Matchday five tie on Tuesday night. Arsenal have exceeded expectations so far and they are the only side to boast a 100% record in the top flight. They currently sit at the top of the Premier League two points above second-placed Manchester City. Mikel Arteta’s side continued their flawless start to the season with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Fulham, with the Gunners forced to fight for the three points from behind through their captain Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Magalhaes after Aleksandar Mitrovic’s opener for the Cottagers. That comeback success against the Cottagers has added to the ever-growing optimism among the Emirates faithful and they will fancy their chances of filing another three points when Aston Villa come calling on Wednesday. Aston Villa have had a difficult start to the campaign with the side winning one and losing three of their four opening matches. They are coming off a damaging 1-0 home defeat to West Ham, making it back-to-back defeats in the top flight and a result pressure is mounting on Villa manager Steven Gerrard who now finds himself among the early favorites in the dreaded Premier League sack race. He will be desperate for his side to cause Arsenal an upset on Wednesday, but that will require them to bring more than just their A-game since the Gunners are slowly turning the Emirates into a fortress that is hard for away side to come away with anything. Arteta’s side have won all their last five home league matches stretching back to last season.
