Spain Copa del Rey

Aston Villa-Arsenal Preview

Mikel Arteta provided an update on the in-form Alexandre Lacazette's contract as Arsenal prepare to invite Aston Villa to Emirates Stadium.

The hosts sit a point above Friday's opponents in 12th after banishing a torrid three-game winless run at the start of the season.

Arsenal left it late against Crystal Palace, with Lacazette netting a last-minute equaliser to extend the Gunners' unbeaten run to six games across all competitions.
