Bukayo Saka (RW) – If Partey is not the first name on the team sheet, Bukayo Saka is.
The youngster is the side’s best player at the moment and he starts every week. It’s as simple as that.
Alexandre Lacazette (ST) – Lacazette has been having one of his best seasons for the club, individually. The Frenchman’s hold up play coupled with his ability to score goals can be instrumental against a side like Villa and their stubborn defense.
Many may want to see Aubameyang in the No. 9 role, but Lacazette will surely start on Saturday.
Nicolas Pepe (LW) – Nicolas Pepe finally seems to be finding some form at Arsenal, and the fact of the matter is, he cannot be taken out of the side while he is playing this well.
The captain, Aubameyang, is surely eager to get playing again, but he will have to earn his spot back and it will be difficult against the likes of the in-form Lacazette and Pepe, who looks happier in his new, simplified role.
