Arsenal's table climb's been halted by consecutive draws and now the 12th-place Gunners must fend off the team below them on the Premier League table (start time 3pm ET Friday on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).

The Gunners have a one-point lead on Aston Villa, which has lost back-to-back games and allowed five goals in the follow-up to a 1-0 win over Manchester United.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Arsenal vs Aston Villa.

This one could be open and fun, should Mikel Arteta deem it so. We think he will and that there will be goals for both clubs… but one more for the home team. Arsenal 2-1 Aston Villa.
