The game between Aston Villa and West Ham promises fun, involving two teams shooting high this year. Both the Villains and the Hammers have secret hopes of reaching the Champions League spot and have formed excellent squads to pursue it. Their recent form has been solid, and we are pretty sure there won’t be any calculations here but an open and flamboyant approach.
Aston Villa vs. West Ham Preview
The Villains have four in a row without a defeat and look pretty sharp. The winning streak started against Crystal Palace and then continued in London against Chelsea at home vs. Brighton, which was a marvelous 6-1 victory before stopping against Wolves, 1-1.
Unai Emery’s crew is fifth with two losses, one tie, and five victories. Their games have been interesting because they produced 31 goals, with the Villains netting 19 and conceding 12.
Villa is superb at home, having three EPL games and winning all of them with a combined goal difference of 13-2. They have the potential to be one of the hardest teams to beat on their turf in the Premiership.
The Hammers didn’t lose in the previous four contests across all the competitions. They had three wins, one each in the EFL Cup, Lincoln, Premiership, Sheffield, and the Europa League, Freiburg.
That excellent streak of results stopped against Newcastle at the London Stadium two weeks ago. To be perfectly clear, West Ham was solid in those 90 minutes, but in the end, they had to settle for a draw.
The Hammers play very good football on the road, with four wins, one draw and one defeat. Liverpool was the only unit that defeated West Ham so far this season.

Aston Villa vs. West Ham Predictions
Villa is very good at home; the same goes for West Ham on the road. The two sides play fast, modern football, with plenty of action and very direct. Their approach and solid form should be enough to see at least one hit on both ends of the field. These are the teams that emphasize offense, not defense, and that also needs to be taken into account.
