Aston Villa (@2.62) vs West Ham (@2.62)

Our Prediction:

West Ham will win

Aston Villa – West Ham Match Prediction | 17-09-2019 15:00

After ending his loan spells with Real Madrid Castilla and Eibar in 2014, he decided to take a step forward in his career, signing a three-year deal with Championship side Brentford for an undisclosed fee. Jota quickly established himself as the first-team regular with the Bees and it has to be noted that he scored 23 goals in 69 appearances for the club in the Championship.

The Villans have already suffered three defeats in the new Premier League season and seeing that they will be without suspended midfielder Trezeguet against the Hammers, home win should not be considered. Mondays football game at Villa Park pits together Aston Villa and West Ham United, the two teams that sit in the different parts of the Premier League table.

The season just began, so they still have the time, but they need to improve their game a lot to prevent returning to the EFL Championship. This time they will have a home-ground advantage working for them, still, I dont believe theyll be able to outscore their opponents, however, theyll most likely score at least one goal. In the last 5 matches in all competitions, the Villans, as they are universally known won 2 and lost 3, while scoring 10 and conceding 7 goals. Aston Villa is one of the returnees to Premier League this season, and they arent doing so well lately. After 4 matches they are almost at the bottom of the table, in 18th place, with 3 points and 4:6 goal difference.

If Mondays guests are to find a route out of the bottom three, then there is no doubt that Smith will be looking for summer arrival Wesley to lead their charge. Putting in their best performance since opening the 2019/2020 campaign with a 2-0 win over European hopefuls Everton last month, that was remarkably just Villas first top-flight victories in their previous 17 attempts. Along with suffering a 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace last time out, the former Brentford boss has seen his side lose three of their opening four contests and find themselves in the bottom three entering September. Starting with Mondays hosts, after having a point controversially snatched away from them away at Selhurst Park prior to the international break, Head Coach Dean Smith will be demanding on an immediate response from his side. Opting to spend big over the summer and breaking the 100million barrier, fans around Villa Park will be desperate for their side to replicate their most recent display in the Midlands. Finding the net in their 2-0 victory over Everton last month, the former Club Brugge man will once again lead the Villans charge on Monday.

In their last 5 H2H meetings, the visitors were victorious twice, the hosts once, and twice we saw a match without the winner. So after carefully looking into their recent form, performances and other important factors, I believe that this time we will see more goals on both sides and that the visitors will grab all three points. However, their last fixture was played more than a year ago, and a lot has changed since then. We didnt see many goals in those clashes, the Villans scored 3 and the Hammers scored 6 goals.

We are about to see another match of the 5th round of Englands most elite football league, so read on to get a good grip on the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this match. Aston Villa vs West Ham prediction brings forward all the important information ahead of the Premier League clash at the Villa Park in Birmingham.

This time he clashed with his teammate Marvelous Nakamba during the training and ended up with a fractured cheekbone. Dean Smith will have a bit of a problem with picking his starting eleven because two of his men are unavailable. Matt Targett suffered a hamstring injury and Jonathan Kodjia just got back from an ankle injury, to get injured again.

Moreover, in their most recent 5 matches, they scored 8 and conceded 7 goals, which averages to over 2.5 goals per match, so I suggest backing that betting option in the upcoming game. They are currently on a four-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, and they are looking forward to continuing that success. After 4 matches they are in the 7th place in the standings, with 7 points and 6:7 goal difference. Out of those 4 games, they kept a clean sheet twice. West Ham, also called the Hammers had a good start this season.

Recent Competition Form

The squads only win in the new campaign came in their previous clash at home though, with the newly-promoted side slotting two unanswered goals past the Toffees. Aston Villa missed out on the opportunity to record back to back wins before the international break after Crystal Palace did just enough to secure a 1-0 win over the hosts at the last blast of the whistle.

Villa have been a team of peaks and troughs so far this term as they get to grips with life back in the top flight, and they give the impression of having lots of potential but still with plenty to learn about the Premier League which is a new experience for their manager Dean Smith as well as a sizeable percentage of his players.
