It's business as usual as Arsenal travel to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa this weekend, but how have Arsenal fared at this famous ground over the years...?

The Gunners are undefeated at Villa Park in their last five visits. Two goals from Thierry Henry saw Arsenal take all three points last season.

The last time Arsenal lost away at Aston Villa was in 1998 when Wenger's men went 2-0 up courtesy of Dennis Bergkamp, but in the end were beaten 3-2.

Back in 1983 Tony Woodcock scored five goals for Arsenal as they triumphed 6-2 at Villa's ground, and in 1936 Ted Drake scored all seven goals for the Gunners in a 7-1 rout.

Arsenal's biggest Premiership win over Aston Villa came at Villa Park in 1995 where Ian Wright and John Hartson scored two goals each in a 4-0 win.

Also Arsenal have suffered mixed fortunes in FA Cup semi-finals in recent seasons.

1998 saw a Christopher Wreh goal defeat Wolves 1-0, but in 1999 and 2004 the Gunners were beaten by Manchester United.

Arsenal's overall record at Villa Park doesn't look that impressive but a large number of the defeats came in the first half of the 20th century. Since the Premiership began Arsenal have won four times at Villa Park, drawn five and only lost three.
