Aston Villa Prediction – Can Aston Villa record second win at Villa Park?

It’s been a fairly average start to the new Premier League season for Aston Villa as the west midlands club have picked up just 1 win out of their first 4 matches of the new season, which has left Dean Smith’s side in the bottom three of the early top flight standings.

Aston Villa’s singular success so far this season in the Premier League was a 2-0 home win over Everton, but 3 defeats from the first 4 matches has put the Monday night’s hosts on the back foot following defeats to Tottenham, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.

Most damaging was the 2-1 defeat at Villa Park against Bournemouth in a match which Villa would have pencilled in them getting at least a point from, but Monday night represents another chance for the hosts to get something on the board against West Ham.

Worryingly, Aston Villa have captured just 1 win out of their last 17 matches in the Premier League, a record that largely extends into their last campaign in the top flight which ended in miserable fashion as Villa were relegated.

West Ham Prediction – Can West Ham win three on the trot?

By comparison, West Ham have made a very solid start to this new Premier League season indeed as The Hammers have lost just 1 of their opening 4 matches and have picked up 7 points from these 4 matches which is an impressive return for the visitors.

West Ham fans may have been fearing the worst for their side though after the opening day of the new season as they were dealt a heavy 5-0 thrashing at home by the current title holders, Manchester City, but Manuel Pellegrini’s side have since bounced back in style.

A point in a 1-1 draw away at Brighton was the catalyst for West Ham to embark upon recording back-to-back wins in the top flight against Watford 3-1 away and a 2-0 home win over newly promoted Norwich City to lift the visitors up into 9th place.

Recent results away form home have also been encouraging for The Hammers as they’ve picked up 3 wins from their last 4 matches on their travels within a 4-match unbeaten run, and Aston Villa look to have their work cut out if they’re to get anything from this clash I fancy.


Key-Facts – Aston Villa v West Ham

  • Aston Villa have captured just 1 win out of their last 17 matches in the EPL
  • West Ham have won 3 of their last 4 away matches in the EPL
  • West Ham have won the last two meetings on the trot against Aston Villa


Betting Tips Verdict

Aston Villa haven’t been convincing in the early stages of their return to the top flight while West Ham have the quality to hurt the hosts here.
