Arsenal take on Aston Villa for game week 4 of the Premier League 22/23 season. Here we have how to watch, team news, head-to-head, odds, prediction and everything you need to know about the fixture.

Arsenal are cementing themselves as one of the sides to really watch out for this season. A flawless start to the campaign sees Mikel Arteta‘s men sit comfortably top of the Premier League, with their next test being a home tie against Steven Gerrard‘s Aston Villa.

Villa are yet to get going this season, they only have one win thus far and most recently lost to fellow slow starters, West Ham United. A couple more losses will really put the pressure on Gerrard, so they’ll be desperate to get something off the high-flying Gunners in this fixture.

So, with this – here’s everything you need to know regarding the fixture between Arsenal and Aston Villa
