Championship play-off winners Aston Villa have found the going tough in the Premier League since their promotion in the summer and currently sit 3rd from bottom after 4 Matchdays. Can they claim a win over West Ham? Read on for Aston Villa vs West Ham betting tips and predictions.
Villa’s solitary league victory of the campaign so far came at Everton’s expense at the end of August, though in truth the Toffees were a little unlucky to not have taken something having dominated proceedings for the entire second half.
With so many new faces in Dean Smith’s squad, Villa remains something of an enigmatic, unknown quantity, and we expect them to have a difficult evening at home to a much more settled West Ham side on Tuesday morning.
The Irons were on the wrong end of a confidence-sapping 0-5 battering by Man City on the opening day of the season, but to their credit, West Ham found their bearings quickly and are currently on a 3-match unbeaten run in the league following wins over Watford and Norwich.
- Aston Villa are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 home league games against West Ham (W3 D2).
- Aston Villa have lost 3 of their last 4 league games (W1).
- West Ham are unbeaten in their last 3 league games (W2 D1).
Aston Villa vs West Ham Prediction
- Villa have been pretty poor this season and they don’t look capable of competing at this level. West Ham have looked solid in recent games and have won their last 3 competitive fixtures. As such, we are tipping the visitors for a 2-1 win.
