How to watch Aston Villa vs Arsenal: Live stream and free audio

How to watch Aston Villa vs Arsenal: The Premier League weekend kicks off with Arsenal travelling to Aston Villa. Here’s how to watch on TV and online and listen for free.

Arsenal are in the midst of a sticky patch. Once eight points clear at the top of the Premier League, the Gunners have recently suffered defeat at Everton, were held at home to Brentford, and lost against Manchester City in midweek.

Whereas a VAR error that cost Arsenal two points against Brentford, Mikel Arteta’s side was architects of their own downfall in midweek, with individual errors leading to all three Man City goals.
