West Ham vs Aston Villa: Predictions
After falling to defeat in their opening two league games, the Hammers have lost just one of their last seven top-flight matches, winning four and drawing the other two.
David Moyes is squeezing the very best out of his squad and he’ll be looking for a repeat of the defensive performances which inspired six points in their last two games against Fulham and Sheffield United, respectively, without conceding a goal.
Aston Villa, meanwhile, have fallen away somewhat after a scintillating start to the season. Dean Smith’s men maintained a perfect record in their opening four games of the campaign, which including that famous 7-2 win over defending champions Liverpool. Since then, they’ve won just once, losing their other three Premier League matches.
Both sides have plenty of players capable of hurting the other and we could be in for an extremely tight evening of Premier League action.
