Aston Villa gained momentum in recent matches. The team has nothing to lose and they will seek for happiness in attack against unmotivated Arsenal. All main stars of the team are in the ranks.
Before final matches of the tournament, it became clear that due to the lease and without serious work in the transfer market, it is almost impossible to stay in the league. The "burgundy-blue" assets have eight wins and seven draws, with the second worst line of defense - 66 conceded. The attack managed to score 39 goals, of which Grealish had seven, Trezeguet and Wesley had five each.
The summer session was unsuccessful. Three draws with Sheffield United (0: 0), Newcastle (1: 1) and Everton (1: 1). The main achievement was the victory over Crystal Palace (2: 0).
Wesley, Heaton, Engels and Taylor will not be able to take part in today's match.
In the championship, the "gunners" performed unsuccessfully. After the fifth place last season, the 10th position does not prettify the capital club, which also left the Europa League. However, reaching the Cup final will bring them a ticket to the European competition, as Chelsea will certainly not give up their place in the Champions League.
The assets of the "red-whites" have 13 wins and 14 draws, while Mikel Arteta's charges have hit the opponents' goal 53 times. The team's best goalscorers were Aubameyang (20 goals) and Lacazette (10 goals).
Guests spent the summer stage quite successfully, but three defeats spoiled the overall picture. In the last two matches, the team lost to Tottenham (1: 2) and beat Liverpool (2: 1), for which we made a forecast.
Chambers, Martinelli, Marie, Leno, Ozil and Mustafi will not be able to play in today's match and Genduzi will not enter the field by Arteta's decision.
In our opinion, Birmingham has practically no chance of success. The Gunners are in excellent shape and are able to outplay any opponent, despite losses in the first team and guests do have motivation. We assume that the "lions" will not be able to keep Aubameyang.
