Manchester City are currently leading the board and the Gunners are in search of just three points that would reclaim to the top of the league.
The recent injury of Theo Walcott would be the biggest disadvantage for the North Londoners, who will miss the remaining season for at least six months. His injury could be proved as major blow for Arsene Wenger.
In the defence department, the duo – Kieran Gibbs and Thomas Vermaelen will not be available due to injuries, so it has been expected that the 27-year-old Spanish Nacho Monreal could be the replacement for the above.
Midfielder – Aaron Ramsey is still sidelined with a thigh injury. Whereas, Oxlade-Chamberlain is fully fit and could make a comeback.
Our Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Aston Villa
The Gunners have performed impressive this season especially away from the Emirates Stadium and could earn three points and reclaim the top position in the league table.
Trust me Arsenal will surely give a tough challenge for Paul Lambert’s men. The match will start on Monday night (13th January 2014) from 20.00 UK Time.
