Aston Villa News and Form – Can Villains beat Everton?

Just before the international break, Aston Villa thought that they had gotten a late equaliser against Crystal Palace. But their strike was ruled out because of a supposed dive by Jack Grealish. It was a contentious call, but in all honesty, Villa had been so poor in the game they didn’t deserve a point out of the fixture at Selhurst Park.

So the Villians now hold a W1 L3 record for the season and they can take the positive that their one victory in the top flight in this campaign happened at home. That was a very good 2-0 home success over Everton, which they fully deserved. They just need more biog home performances like that instead of the poor showing at Selhurst Park.

Two-thirds of the goals that Villa have conceded in the Premier League this season have come after the half time break. The Villains have opened the scoring in half of their fixtures and they have been leading at the half time break in two of their four as well. The Villains will be playing without summer signing Trezeguet who missed through suspension. Other than that, Dean Smith has a full squad to pick from.

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.

Aston Villa v West Ham Predictions

West Ham to win: The Hammers can edge this one at Villa Park to keep their good run of form going. While they are not the greatest at the back and both teams scoring in this fixture is likely, they look the stronger of the two sides and can nail the three points.
