The Claret and Blue have won their last four games including resounding wins at Middlesbrough and Blackburn.
Martin O'Neill may be without Gabby Agbonlahor who picked up a knock in the 4-0 victory at Ewood Park and is definitely missing combative midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker through suspension.
If Agbonlahor doesn't make it then either Luke Moore, Shaun Maloney or Marlon Harewood could figure from the start.
Harewood recently picked up his first league goal of the season at Blackburn and fans will be hoping he has a renewed vigour if selected.
The Gunners could be without Cesc Fabregas, Alex Hleb and Gael Clichy. Dutch striker Robin Van Persie is out.
Villa have actually picked up more points in the last six games than their opponents illustrating just how good they have been of late.
So can they end the table toppers unbeaten record? Lets hope so!
Come on Villa!
Editor's Prediction: If we keep it tight in the first half we have every chance of a win. But a tidy 1-1 draw looks likeliest!
