Aston Villa vs West Ham odds

Aston Villa
West Ham

Despite being so early in the season, this is a key battle between two teams looking to break up England’s elite and once again challenge among the European places.

Aston Villa head into the match fifth in the table, just one point adrift of the Champions League spots and unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches, though a 1-1 draw against Wolves just before the international break was a slightly underwhelming result — especially given they’d thrashed Brighton 6-1 a week earlier.

As for West Ham, they’re seventh, just two places and two points behind their hosts and sporting a four-game unbeaten streak across all competitions which includes a 2-2 comeback draw against Newcastle.
