Arsenal's predicted starting lineup against Aston Villa

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is once again expected to make changes to the side that beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 in midweek when they host Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon. 

The Spaniard made seven changes to the starting team for the match in Germany from the side that drew 2-2 away to Watford and is once again expected to ring some changes. 

Joe Willock was impressive in midweek and might get the nod to start, which will mean Mesut Ozil dropping to the bench having started last week against Watford, even though Emery indicated he rested him for the Villa match.  

Guendouzi and Xhaka are expected to once again partner in midfield, with Dani Ceballos expected back in the starting lineup as well.

Torreira, who had a good game in Germany leading to Emery saying he might have found his best position (playing upfront) might be forced to settle for a place on the bench as well. 

With Lacazette out injured, Aubameyang is once again expected to lead the lines for the Gunners and will be joined by summer acquisition Nicolas Pepe. 

Here is the predicted starting lineup. 

Starting XI: Leno; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, David Luiz, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Ozil, Guendouzi, Ceballos; Aubameyang, Pepe.
