Paddy Power are favouring Arsenal in the match and have installed them as 8/13 favourites to get all three points. Aston Villa won at The Emirates last year and are flying high this season so despite a price of 9/2 are going to a popular bet with the punters.

Paddy Power Money-Back Special

It’s the biggest game of the Christmas period so Paddy Power’s Money-Back Special could only be on this one.

If this wasn’t enough to entice you there is also a free £20 bet to all new sign ups after placing your first bet of £10.

With Cesc Fabregas back for the Villa game Arsenal will have their captain back pulling the strings in midfield. Hopefully he’ll be able to pick up where he left off, with a goal. He’s an 8/1 chance to score the first goal just like he did in his last game before this injury. Abou Diaby had a fantastic game against Hull and it’ll be him and Denilson competing for the other midfield spot alongside Fabregas and Song. It’s a tough choice for Arsene Wenger as both Diaby and Denilson scored in their last game they are available at big prices; 14/1 and 18/1 respectively for the opener.

This is going to be a very close game, Arsenal haven’t beaten Villa at home since the 5-0 win back in 2006, prior to last season’s 2-0 defeat the previous two matches before that 5-0 win had finished 1-1 which may not be an unrealistic result this Sunday. A 1-1 draw and a share of the spoils is 6/1 this Christmas weekend. However Arsenal have brought themselves back into the title race and have to keep the pressure on the teams above them and that means not drawing this match but winning, a tall order against a team that has already beaten Manchester United and Chelsea. Villa don’t concede many goals so look at a narrow win for The Gunners; the famous 1-0 to the Arsenal is 13/2 the same price as a 2-1 win. It promises to be a great game.
