Arsenal host Aston Villa on Saturday in the Premier League.

Arsenal return to Premier League action against Aston Villa on Saturday having lost their last two matches in the FA Cup and Champions League respectively.

The Gunners claimed a fortuitous 1-0 win last time in the league against Sunderland and are looking to close a four-point gap to Tottenham Hotspur, who are fourth.

Villa won their first game since mid-December last time, beating West Ham United 2-1 at Villa Park that lifted them out of the bottom three.

Kieran Gibbs remains Arsene Wenger's only injury concern and he could select the same side that lost 3-1 to Bayern Munich in the week.

For Villa, Karim El Ahmadi could return along with Gabriel Agbonlahor but Marc Albrighton is still missing.
