Premier League Scores: Result and Highlights from the EPL Fixture between Aston Villa v Arsenal on Saturday, November 24, 2012.
Result: Aston Villa 0 – 0
Location: Villa Park – Aston Villa
|Aston Villa – 0||Arsenal – 0|
I had predicted an Arsenal win today, instead Aston Villa picked up a draw. There was very little in the match, and particularly the middle portion of the match was rather boring. Arsenal dominated in possession but lacked the clinical finishing that they needed. Arsenal this season has been very inconsistent, especially in the Premier League.
Aston Villa looked better this week defensively, but also lacked true quality at the front. Benteke shows flashes of danger up front, but really needed some support to help him out. Arsenal had a few close chances, the best coming with Laurent Koscielny who had a wide open look at goal, but put it miles high instead. Arsenal should have been ahead from this shot, but instead lacked the quality they needed to get a goal and a win.
Both teams needed a result from this match with Aston Villa certainly the happier of the two with a draw. Arsenal getting a draw away to Aston Villa is not enough, they really needed the win.
