Arteta thinks he knows what Villa’s approach will be

Mikel Arteta expects Aston Villa to come out fighting from the first whistle after they lost their last two league games.

Villa was one of the in-form team at the start of this Premier League season and they even beat Liverpool 7-2 in an unbelievable upset.

Their early season form made them title contenders, but their form has since tailed off and they are winless in two games ahead of this match.

Arteta was speaking ahead of the match and the Spaniard claimed that Villa is a very competitive team that is always changing their approaches to different games.

He also acknowledged that Dean Smith’s side has earned some huge wins against top teams recently.

He then adds that he expects them to attack the game from the start after they lost their last two Premier League games.

He said via Arsenal.com: “It is a really competitive side, they have played some very different matches with different approaches to certain matches, having some big results against big teams and after two defeats they need a win as well and they will show that right from the start I think.”

Arsenal will want to get all three points from this game after they beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford the last time out.

      Did you see Pickford take Maguire out? Although he made a meal of it, it did make me laugh!!

      1. Kev82 says:

        Haha yeah Sue bloody hilarious 🤣🤣 Everton fans were all getting ahead of themselves telling other supporters what they’re team needs 😝 signing a relegated doucoure who has never played one game for France and a has been Allan.. to top that off they have Alex Iwobi 😂

        1. Sue says:

          Would love to see the look on Tony Bellew’s face right now… he was bigging them up on Soccer AM earlier, Kev….
          Plus Pickford in goal – he’s awful!!
          It’s because Richarlison was missing don’t forget, Kev 😜

          5. Kev82 says:

            I’m guessing your not a fan of him either Sue ? 😆. Bamford is notching up the goals isn’t he ? He’s well clear of Auba lol. I have to say Sue I really enjoyed the molde game well the second half we actually looked like scoring from every attack, I want to see more of that tomorrow night 😄

          6. Val says:

            hes more like a rabid velociraptor or a cat on cokeknip 🤣

          7. Kev82 says:

          8. Sue says:

            Yeah the 2nd half was good, Kev…
            Auba needs a couple tomorrow.. can’t believe Palace have scored 3 – especially at home!!
            It’s the dreaded International break next week… 😫 I’ve picked up a big fat 0 in my predictions so far….. 😂

          11. Kev82 says:

            The wheels are coming off for Leeds and Bielsa Sue as I knew they would.. some people talk about bielsa likes he’s won 10 champions leagues he managed Argentina, did nothing.. managed Bilbao don’t think he won anything there, managed lille, Marseille and lazio… Maybe I don’t understand football but I don’t see the hype surrounding him. 4 now Sue 😂 8 in 2 games 😳 oh I haven’t done it this week, I didn’t see any posts on prediction’s yesterday 😂 Chelsea game up next should be good

          12. Sue says:

            If Palace can put 4 past them…then surely we’ll be alright!!
            Have Palace ever scored 4 in a game before?!!
            Yeah I’ll have a butchers at that – nowt else on 😂😂😂 World cup of darts later!

          13. Kev82 says:

            I don’t recall palace scoring 4 🤪 with that defence of there’s anything other than a comfortable victory I would be disappointed Sue 😉 Partey can take care of they’re midfield on his own 😝 haha come on admit it, you were looking forward to this game all week 🤣 that’s your Saturday night sorted 😃
