Aston Villa vs. West Ham: will the guests fight back?
Aston Villa vs. West Ham. Prediction for the English Premier League match (February 3, 2021)
On January 3, "Aston Villa" will host "West Ham" in the next round of the Premier League, so we have prepared a prediction for this confrontation. What to expect from the match? Find out below.
With small steps "Lions" are approaching the leading five. The team is a strong mid-player who can take points even from the leaders of the championship, so it is not surprising to see Jack Grealish and the team on the ninth position.
"Aston Villa" is in a good mood, as in the last match the team managed to beat "Southampton" with a minimum score (1:0). It could have ended worse, as on 93 minute Danny Ings scored but was adjudged to have been offside.
Dean Smith's players will face a tough opponent in the next round, as "West Ham" is joining the struggle for European competition. The hosts will have a hard time, but they have everything to survive in the home arena "Villa Park".
Upcoming Predictions for Football
The "Hammers" perform incredibly if to take into account the fact that they got over "Chelsea", "Tottenham", and "Everton" in the standings. The team ended up in fifth place and is four points behind the Champions League zone.
"West Ham" has been doing great for the last four rounds until they faced "Liverpool". David Moyes' guys performed well in the first half of the match, but then the opponent began to aggressively pressurize and the hosts' defense could not survive. The team missed three goals and only in the 87th minute Craig Dawson answered with one goal (1:3).
The team clearly does not plan to slow down or leave the Top-5, so in the next match, they need to earn points. There are no serious problems with the squad, so the team can claim victory.
"Aston Villa" feels better in away matches, but recently the team has also started to show good football at home. Dean Smith's guys have not been able to beat the "Hammers" for a long time, and most likely this time it will not be easy to achieve the desired result again.
"West Ham" is in good shape apart from the last defeat from "Liverpool". David Moyes' guys set the goal of staying in the European competition zone, so in the next confrontation, they must at least not lose, which is what we hope for.
Our prediction is that both will score with odds of 1.64 on 1xbet.
