Aston Villa vs West Ham Prediction & Match Preview

Aston Villa vs West Ham
England Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20.15 UK
Venue: Villa Park, Birmingham.

Aston Villa quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Burnley, with the team beating Southampton on the road on Matchday 21. 

The Villans aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Wednesday’s football game. 

Both Hause and Wesley are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team. As always, a man to watch in the home side will be Jack Grealish.

The Hammers, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Mane-less Liverpool. 

West Ham United face yet another difficult task in the midweek fixture, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Villa’s party at Villa Park. 

Defender Arthur Masuaku has yet to recovery from a knee injury, while goalkeeper Darren Randolph should be fit to face the VIllans. Anyhow, home win should be considered as West Ham were anything but impressive in their last league match.

Team News:

Moyes must decide whether to hand a first start to Jesse Lingard after his loan move from Manchester United.

While the Scot will assess the fitness of Michail Antonio, the Hammers may line up with the same team which started against Liverpool.

Smith could take the same approach with his Villa XI having had an extra day to prepare for this fixture.

That would see Morgan Sanson remaining on the substitutes' bench as he awaits his first outing in a Villa shirt.
