Aston Villa News and Form
Aston Villa thought that they had gotten an equaliser out at Crystal Palace just before the intentional break. But it was ruled out for a dodgy call of a dive by Jack Grealish. Regardless of that, the Villains didn’t do anywhere near enough in the fixture to really warrant a point out of the fixture. It leaves them in a W1 L3 record for the season. The positive from that is that they got their one home win in their last home fixture, a rousing 2-0 home success over Everton.
They need more big performances like that, not like the abject one they produced at Palace. Two-thirds of the goals that Villa have conceded in his season’s top flight have come in the second half of games. They have opened the scoring two of their games, leading at half time in two of them as well. Aston Villa will be missing Trezeguet who is suspended but other than, boss Dean Smith has pretty much a full squad. No player has made it past one goal for the Villains in this campaign.
Aston Villa v West Ham Head to Head
This is the first league meeting since 2016
Both teams have scored in just one of the last six Premier League fixtures
Three of the last six EPL meetings have ended in a draw
West Ham are W2 D3 L1 in their last six against the Villains
West Ham News and Form
West Ham will be happy with their back to back wins just before the international break. It is a three-match undefeated streak for them and they have looked pretty good. Especially when you take their big loss against Man City out of the equation. Big summer signing Sebastien Haller has netted three times in his last two games and the Hammers have produced some good stuff going forward and don’t look as if they are going to struggle for goals.
The Irons are unbeaten on the road this season, taking a draw at Brighton and then a win at Watford. They too have almost a full squad to pick from apart from the sidelined Winston Reid and Michail Antonio. It is a four-match undefeated streak of away form that West Ham are on in the top flight (W3 D1) and they have scored in each of their last five. Both of West Ham’s wins this season in the Premier League have been by a margin of exactly two goals.
