Preview: Aston Villa Women vs. Arsenal Women

Arsenal Women will attempt to claim a third consecutive victory in all competitions when they travel to Villa Park to face Aston Villa Women in the Women’s Super League on Sunday.

The host were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester United last weekend, but they have won four of their last five competitive matches.

Aston Villa recorded three straight victories in all competitions before they were hammered 5-0 by Man United at Old Trafford.

Despite being comfortably beaten, the Villans remain in fifth place in the WSL as they prepare for their final game of 2022.

They also have the chance to record consecutive victories after beating Sheffield United 2-1 in the League Cup during the week thanks to goals from Kirsty Hanson and Kenza Dali.

That result ensured that Aston Villa progressed to the quarter-finals after they topped a League Cup group that contained the likes of Manchester United and Everton.

As they turn their attention back to league matters, Aston Villa know that they will face a tough test on Sunday after losing their two league games against Arsenal last season by a combined 11-0 scoreline.

After losing to 3-2 in the WSL to Man United and drawing against Juventus in the Champions League, Arsenal returned to winning ways last weekend.

Vivianne Miedema scored in the first half to guide the Gunners to a 1-0 victory over Everton that leaves them level on points with second-placed Man United and three points adrift of league leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.

The Gunners replicated the 1-0 scoreline in their midweek encounter with Juventus, and once again, a first-half Miedema effort helped Arsenal claim a narrow victory.

Jonas Eidevall’s side are now currently top of their Champions League group with 10 points to their name, and they will look to qualify for the knockout rounds when they face Lyon on Thursday.

Before they can focus on their home match against the European champions, Arsenal will attempt to record an eighth consecutive away league victory in Sunday’s meeting with Aston Villa.

We say: Aston Villa Women 0-3 Arsenal Women
Aston Villa are without a number of first-team players, and we think that they will be swept aside by an Arsenal team that have won their last seven away league games.
