Why you should back Arsenal 

Kai Havertz is in the best form of his career. The 24-year-old German ranks second on the team in goals (nine) and is tied for third in assists (five). Over his last seven Premier League matches, he has five goals and four assists. Over his last four outings, he has been the Gunners’ main scoring threat, leading the team with nine shots, eight shots in the box, and three big chances.

Havertz and Arsenal will face an Aston Villa side that will be without Douglas Luiz. The 25-year-old midfielder from Brazil will be forced to sit out the match because of an accumulation of yellow cards. His absence is significant as Luiz leads the team in tackles (36) and ball recoveries (169) and also has nine goals and five assists. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Aston Villa

The Villans have one of the best players in the Premier League in Ollie Watkins. The 28-year-old striker has scored 18 goals in league play this season, which ranks second in the EPL behind only Erling Haaland (19). Watkins also is tied for the league lead in assists (10). His 28 goal contributions lead the EPL.

Watkins and Villa enter Sunday’s match knowing they’ve already beaten the Gunners this season. On Dec. 9 at Villa Park, the Villans got a seventh-minute goal from captain John McGinn and held on for a 1-0 victory. The win came three days after they had knocked off reigning league champion Manchester City, 1-0. See which team to pick here.
