The Gunners will look to close in on a place inside the top four with victory at the Emirates

Arsenal host Aston Villa in the late kick-off in the Premier League on Sunday, with both sides able to close in on the top four and react to the hot pace being set at the top of the table.

The Gunners made plenty of changes midweek to dispatch Molde with Mikel Arteta likely to be considering whether to recall the players rested, given their impressive victory over Manchester United last weekend. 

Back-to-back defeats to Leeds and Southampton leave Villa badly in need of a result to maintain their very promising start to the season under Dean Smith – follow all the live action and updates from the Emirates below, plus the conclusion of Manchester City vs Liverpool:

The teams make their way out onto the pitch. Whoever wins tonight will move up to sixth in the table. Aston Villa need to get back into winning ways, they could become only the third team in top-flight history to win their opening four fixtures and then lose the next three.

A point apiece means that Liverpool fail to retake top spot and have to settle for third in the table whilst Man City move up to 11th with 12 points, the same as Arsenal and Aston Villa, who play each other next.

Earlier in the week Gabriel Jesus said it was a ‘must win’ game for Man City and he maintained his stance speaking to Sky Sports after the match saying: 


 “It was a top game. We know they work hard and have a lot of amazing players. We had a chance to win the game.

“Both teams wanted to win. Sometimes when it’s like this you have to control the ball more. We have to keep playing like this and try to convert the chances.

“We played at home and we have to win the games here. The result is not good for us and maybe it’s good for them.”
