Arsene Wenger and his men welcome Eric Black’s Villans to the Emirates Stadium for the final match of the 2015/2016 season.
Third, Fourth or even Second! – Arsenal’s finishing position remains uncertain heading into the final weekend of the season but, thanks to a sublime lay-off from Olivier Giroud and a clinical finish from Alexis, Arsene Wenger does not need to rely on results elsewhere to seal an automatic pass into the Champions League for the twentieth time in a row.
Arsenal will only need a draw against an already relegated Aston Villa side to secure a third place finish this season; but Wenger’s side will be looking to beat odds such as these taken from Paddy Power – read more, to beat arch rivals Tottenham to second place.
“There’s a big job to do because there’s a difference between finishing third and fourth,” Wenger told Arsenal Player. “We are guaranteed to be in the top four and part of that is because of the job we did at Manchester City.
“Now we can still finish second, we can still strengthen our position in third, and that definitely gives us a good potential in the Champions League. We want to achieve that and we want to finish well at home as well in front of our crowd.
