Arsenal have their focus on a fifth successive victory at the start of the new Premier League season ahead of the visit of struggling Aston Villa on Wednesday night. The North London giants welcome Aston Villa to the Emirates Stadium with four league wins under their belt at the start of this season and they are massive favourites to get a win and make it five league wins at the start of this season.
Villa were convincingly beaten by newly promoted team Bournemouth surprisingly on the opening weekend of the season as Jefferson Lerma and Kiefer Moore scored for the Cherries for a 2-0 win at home. They recovered from the poor result against Bournemouth to beat Everton 2-1 at home through the goals from Danny Ings and Emiliano Buendia. Since the win over Everton, Aston Villa have been beaten by Crystal Palace and West Ham United. Ivorian international Zaha scored twice for Palace on the way to a 3-1 victory at home at the expense of Villa, while Spanish star Pablo Fornals scored the only goal to give West Ham United a 1-0 away win over Villa.
Arsenal began their season with the 2-0 London Derby away win over Crystal Palace. They then beat Leicester City 4-2 at home to make it two successive league wins at the start of the season. The 3-0 away win over newly promoted team Bournemouth made it three wins. Arsenal made it four successive league wins at the start of the season with the 2-1 comeback win over Fulham in the London Derby.
