Aston Villa are right now desperately looking for their second win of the Premier League this season as they welcome Arsenal at Villa Park.

Newly appointed manager Remi Garde is still waiting for his first win in charge, having seen two draw and two defeats during his four games after taking charge. The interesting part is Garde will be in the dugout against his former club Arsenal and their manager Arsene Wenger, who brought him to England to play for Arsenal in 1996.

The Gunners destroyed Olympiakos 3-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday, and Wenger will be looking to follow that winning habbit with yet another victory.

The French manager will be eyeing to finish this calendar year in top spot as crucial encounters wait for them over the festive period, and most the important part is Giroud has finally found his form at the right time for Arsenal to boost for a title run domestically.

 Here is the starting lineup for Aston Villa and Arsenal.

Aston Villa Starting Lineup:

Guzan; Hutton, Okore, Lescott, Bacuna; Gana, Veretout, Sanchez; Sinclair, Gestede, Ayew

Aston Villa Substitutes:

Bunn, Clarke, Westwood, Traore, Gil, Grealish, Lyden

Arsenal Starting Lineup:

Cech; Monreal, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Bellerin; Ramsey, Flamini; Walcott, Ozil, Campbell; Giroud


Arsenal Substitutes:
