West Ham vs Aston Villa – Betting Analysis
Aston Villa has not fared well in these meetings, according to results dating back to July 26, 2020 between these two teams.
They haven’t been able to win any games at all, but West Ham United has been too strong for them, winning 83% of the times they’ve played each other.
During those matches, they combined for 18 goals, with 13 from The Hammers and 5 from The Villans. That equals an average of three goals scored per contest.
Alphonse Areola, Benjamin Johnson, Nayef Aguerd, Angelo Ogbonna, Emerson, Tomas Souek, Declan Rice, Lucas Paqueta, Jarrod Bowen, Danny Ings, and Saad Benrahma appear to be possible candidates for The Hammers’ 4-3-3 configuration for this match.
Only one fitness issue needs to be addressed by Aston Villa manager Unai Emery due to a group that is generally at full strength. Diego Carlos won’t be playing because of an Achilles tendon tear.
Emiliano Martinez, Matty Cash, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings, Alex Moreno, John McGinn, Leander Dendoncker, Douglas Luiz, Jacob Ramsey, Ollie Watkins, and Emiliano Buendia are likely candidates to play for The Villans in a 4-4-2 lineup.
We predict that West Ham United will win and very likely maintain a clean sheet, so we think it might be difficult for Aston Villa to score goals against this West Ham United lineup.
