After a stuttering start, Arsenal have started to turn things around under Mikel Arteta, most-notably in a 3-1 win over Spurs in the north London derby.
The next challenge is to keep climbing the Premier League table and try to secure a return to European football next season.
We’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Arsenal – from their next league game, to the latest football betting odds.
Arsenal’s next Premier League fixture
It’s a quick turnaround for the Gunners this week. Having drawn with Crystal Palace on Monday, they return to action against Aston Villa on Friday night.
Villa have had the better of Arsenal in recent meetings, winning the last three, but it is the Gunners who lead the Premier League head-to-head stats with 27 victories to Villa’s 11.
This weekend’s Arsenal odds
Buoyed by their late equaliser against Crystal Palace, Arsenal are slight favourites against Aston Villa. Given the Gunners have only kept a clean sheet in two of their last 12 Premier League home games, a home win and both teams to score might be worth a look at 14/5.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has netted in each of his last three league games at the Emirates. He is 3/1 to open the scoring against Villa.
What’s the latest Arsenal team, transfer and injury news?
Bukayo Saka is the only injury doubt for the Aston Villa game after being withdrawn at half-time in Monday’s draw with Crystal Palace following a strong tackle from James McArthur.

Odds on Arsenal to win the Premier League
Title ambitions are not something many Arsenal fans have this season, and the odds reflect that. The Gunners are 100/1 to finish top of the table in May. A top-six finish is probably more realistic. They’re 11/10 to achieve that.
Who is the manager of Arsenal?
After serving his apprenticeship under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Mikel Arteta is stepping out on his own at Arsenal. Arteta, a former player at the club, is the latest manager challenged to emulate the success delivered by Arsene Wenger. He already has an FA Cup in his trophy cabinet.
Who are Arsenal’s key players?
Arsenal’s squad features a mix of star players, exciting young talent and a selection of players that the club would ideally be looking to move on. In terms of their key players, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the Gunners captain and star striker, but he will be hoping to improve on his lacklustre season last term. Bukayo Saka has become indispensable for the club, even more so after his Euros heroics with England, while Kieran Tierney has become the side’s most influential defender since his arrival from Celtic.
Where is Arsenal’s stadium?
Arsenal play at the 60,000-seater Emirates Stadium in north London, having moved there in 2006 from Highbury. It is the fourth-largest football stadium in England after Wembley Stadium, Old Trafford and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
