Two of the Premier League’s most in-form sides meet as Aston Villa host Arsenal.

Unai Emery’s side extended their home winning run to a remarkable 14 games with a midweek victory over Manchester City.

The three points lifted Aston Villa above the defending champions, four points and two places back from their weekend opponents.

Arsenal required an extremely late winner from Declan Rice to emerge with victory from a seven-goal thriller against struggling Luton, and will expect another tough test.
