OK well hands up I got the 10 reasons why we will beat Villa WRONG when we played them at home this season, in my defence this was pre-Ozil.. https://shewore.com/2013/08/17/10-reasons-why-we-will-beat-aston-villa/
1.. We have Ozil now, back after his winter break/shoulder injury
2.. We have a nice 9 day break from our last game, which was a fairly easy 2-0 win against some mongs from Middlesex.
3.. Despite what http://www.arsenal.com are saying about team news I would expect Giroud to play.
4.. We haven’t lost at Villa since 1998
5.. Villa have only scored 7 home goals, we have scored 21 away goals.
6.. Theo is out till next season, but we have Gnarby ready and willing to come off the bench.
7.. Koscielny is fully fit, him and the BFG have never lost a game they have played the full 90mins since 1901
8.. Diaby is injured, which is better than him playing.
9.. Rosicky, currently in the form of his life.
10.. Wenger knows, after the first game when Villa beat us we were rock bottom, a win tonight and we are, well we are top
Likely Starting XI – Chesney, Sagna, Kos, BFG, Monreal, Wilshere, Arteta, Flamini, Rosicky, Ozil, Giroud
