Aston Villa vs West Ham Betting Tips
Aston Villa are back in the top English flight, but this team is also one of the biggest candidates for relegation. Although they’re currently third from the bottom, they do not seem too desperate. Actually, if they keep on playing like they have, they have every right to hope to stay up at the end of the season.
This team did lose three matches so far, but they weren’t as bad as the results might suggest. In fact, the Villans put on a pretty good performance in each of the games they lost so far – to Tottenham, Bournemouth, and Crystal Palace. They even got themselves one victory so far. It happened in Birmingham, at the Villa Park where they outplayed Everton, beating the Toffees 2:0.
In front of their crowd, this team seems really tough to beat. And that is why many of their supporters are feeling optimistic ahead of the Monday’s clash with West Ham. Aston Villa are ready for this game and are very motivated to win all three points. The Hammers, on the other hand, would probably be satisfied even with a draw.
West Ham seem like a potential dark horse of the season that could challenge one of the top 6 positions. Their squad looks incredibly powerful in all areas. They have been strong for a while now, but in the recent seasons, the Hammers always had problems in the final third. But, the curse of West Ham strikers seems to have been broken with the arrival of Sebastien Haller.
The powerful French striker is considered to be one of the best finishers in the game. He scored 15 Bundesliga goals last season playing for Eintracht Frankfurt and is on the good road to achieving something similar in the Premier League as well. After three games in West Ham shirt, this guy has three goals to his name.
The Hammers are putting their trust in Haller in the match with Aston Villa, but will he be able to score a goal or two? It’s not going to be easy because the Villans seem to have an antidote for him in the form of Tyrone Mings, a powerful defender who’s recently gotten a call-up to the English national team.
