Arsenal are preparing to host Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday, November 8. Ahead of the game, BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson stated his prediction.

Lawrenson expects the game to end with Arsenal’s 2-0 win.

“I was very impressed by Arsenal at Old Trafford last weekend. They fully deserved their win and Thomas Partey already looks a force in midfield.

“After a good result like that, the Gunners need to push on and show they have eradicated the defensive mistakes that have cost them in the past. If they can stop them, then they will be right up there at the top of the table.

“Yes, Arsenal can still improve their creativity, but manager Mikel Arteta is right to try to make them more solid first.

“Aston Villa have leaked a few goals in the past couple of weeks and I would be surprised if they manage a clean sheet here.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
