Matchday 23 of the ongoing 2020-21 Premier League season sees Aston Villa hosting London rivals Arsenal FC as both teams go head to head against each other on Saturday. The PL clash is set to be played at the Villa Park on Saturday, February 6 with the match scheduled to kick off at 6:00 pm according to IST. Let’s have a look at the AVL vs ARS Dream11 prediction, playing 11, top picks, and other details of this PL clash.

 Narrowly escaping relegation last season, Aston Villa have bounced back in style and been far more successful than what was expected from them in the ongoing PL campaign. Currently slotted ninth on the PL standings, Dean Smith’s men have registered 10 wins from 20 matches. With 32 points against their name, Aston Villa will walk into the match following a 1-3 bashing at the hands of West Ham. The hosts have slipped up in recent times managed just 2 wins from their previous 7 Premier League outings and will be cautious to not lose any points as their Saturday evening opponents are breathing down their necks. 

Arsenal, on the other hand, had a horrendous start to the PL campaign which saw Arteta’s men stick closer to the relegation zone for quite a while. However, their match against Chelsea turned things around as the London outfit revied their form and are now back into the top half of the table. Arsenal are slotted just a spot below Aston Villa and currently sit at 10th position in the PL standings.

The visitors have 31 points from 22 games and with just 1 point differentiating the teams, The Gunners will start the match following a 2-1 loss to Wolves’ and will be hoping to bounce back on the winning ways with a win against the Villa who still have 2 more games in hand and solidly their position in the top half of the Premier League table.

AVL Vs ARS Fantasy Probable Winner

With their opponents losing their bygone match as well, this fixture grows in importance for both the clubs. We envision it being a closely contested encounter, one which sees another side being able to break the deadlock at the end of the 90 minutes.

Fantasy Team


Up against his previous employers, Emiliano Martinez will be extremely eager to remind Arsenal of their mistake to let go off him.


They ended up shipping three goals the last time around but apart from that, both Matt Targett and Matthew Cash have been impeccable for their side. The two have not only kept attacking threats at bay but have more importantly provided width to the side’s attacking plays as well.

Arsenal will also see us repose faith in a duo. Its one comprising of Cedric Soares and Rob Holding, two players who have closed the ball with ease to nullify attacking plays.


His assist against West Ham now sees Jack Grealish with the 6 goals and 10 assists, numbers which make him an instant pick for today.

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka was unfortunate to see his thunderous strike be ruled out the last time around but it was one which emoted towards his expansive expertise. Granit Xhaka and his ability to disrupt attacking plays see him partner Saka up.


Moving to 9 goals as he struck for his club the last time around, the team’s leading scorer, striker Ollie Watkins completes the set of picks from his team.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is set to return to the side’s playing 11 after missing out across the last couple of weeks. He’s going to link up with the side’s top scorer with the eight goals, Alexandre Lacazette.

Captain And Vice-Captain

Saka’s 5 goals makes him our captain while Jack is the vice-captain.
