Gabriel Agbonlahor
Fresh from signing a new four-contract, Gabriel Agbonlahor is out to impress. He, along with Andreas Weimann, is Villa’s joint-top scorer this season with two goals already. He is good in the air and has an abundance of pace, which means his runs from deep could prove to be a real problem for the Gunners’ back four.
