[Teams] Aston Villa vs Arsenal: Confirmed Line-Ups

By on January 13, 2014

Arsenal take on Aston Villa at Villa Park this evening looking for a win to return to the top of the Premier League table.

The Gunners slipped to third following wins for Manchester City and Chelsea over the weekend but the north Londoners can climb back to the summit with all three points tonight.

Boss Arsene Wenger has made several changes from the side that beat Tottenham in the FA Cup last weekend. Wojciech Szczesny returns in goal while Mathieu Flamini starts in midfield with the Frenchman playing alongside Jack Wilshere. Mikel Arteta misses out with a calf problem.

Serge Gnabry retains his place in the team while Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud return from knocks. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is back on the bench after five months out with a knee injury.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Aston Villa

Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Clark, Baker, Luna, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph, Agbonlahor, Benteke.

Subs: Steer, Sylla, Bacuna, Tonev, Helenius, Weimann, Albrighton
