The midfield should be able to hold the ball and control of the ball that might result in creating of chances by Villa's goal assists. The midfield should also make sure that goal scoring chances created for the forwards.

2. Attacks.

Arteta should employ a one defensive midfield with Odegaard and Smith Rowe in front of him. The forwards should be Pepe, Auba and Martinelli or Lacazette.
