Unai Emery will be reunited with his former club Arsenal when they take on Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday.

Emery was in charge of the Gunners from 2018 to 2019 before he was sacked and joined Villarreal. The manager now works for Villa who will attempt to take points off of the league title chasers.

He will face an Arsenal side who are keen to get back in the winning books as they haven’t won a match in their last four outings. Their latest loss came at the hands of Manchester City and Martin Odegaard is keen to get the team back on track.

“As we have said all season, work hard and take it game by game. It is the same now,” he said “It is one game we have lost here and now we look to the next one. A new game on Saturday and we must come back and win.”

Here’s everything you need to know as Arsenal look to return to winning ways.

When is it?

The match will kick-off at 12.30pm GMT on Saturday, 18 February at Villa Park.
