Gunners gaffer Mikel Arteta has named German shot-stopper Bernd Leno in goal in place of Aaron Ramsdale who is out due to a hip injury, while Brazilian hitman Gabriel Martinelli is unavailable for the clash due to illness.

Villa boss Steven Gerrard has listed the usual suspects in Phillipe Coutinho, Matt Cash, Emi Buendia and Douglas Luiz in his starting XI.

Both sides come into this game having lost their respective matches last time out, and will be seeking to get a positive result at the end of 90 minutes. Aston Villa fell to West Ham United at the London Stadium while Arsenal lost 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to visiting Liverpool on Thursday.
