, the Villains boss Unai Emery has wished his former club Arsenal well in their pursuit of the Premier League title.

After having a flying first half of the season where they only lost a game in 19 matches, Arsenal have hit a bit of a rough patch recently as they are without a win in 3 matches. Unai Emery seeks to add to Arsenal woes, despite wishing them well in the title race.

 Speaking ahead of the game, Emery said: "

Arsenal are a really good team in a very good moment. Their last matches won’t change the confidence, and how they are progressing, how they are playing and their possibilities to win the title this year."

He added:

"At Arsenal, I had very good experiences. I enjoyed it there. I was there for one and a half years. I’m so grateful to Arsenal, to the owners, to the supporters, to the players. But I’m very grateful to everybody here and I will use my experiences from my time at Arsenal and get better with Aston Villa."

Emery, who was sacked after only 18 months at


, hopes to get a home win and go on points with Chelsea at the 10th spot, while the Gunners want to recapture the top spot again.
