West Ham travel to Villa Park for the first time since 2015 in Monday night Premier League action
888Sport Pre-Match Odds: Aston Villa 33/20, Draw 5/2, West Ham 8/5
Aston Villa traditionally have a very good record at home against the Hammers, losing two of their last 18 Premier League games against them at Villa Park.
But a long time has elapsed since they last played one another in a competitive game, with Villa back in the big time after three years down in the Championship. Jack Grealish remains from the side that was relegated in the 2015-16 season, but otherwise this is a very different side.
West Ham come into the game in good form with a return of seven points from the opening four games equalling their best start to the season since Sam Allardyce was in charge in 2012.
Since suffering their usual thrashing at the hands of champions Manchester City at home on the opening day, they've since beating Watford 3-1 and Norwich 2-0 as well as taking a point away to Brighton with a 1-1 draw.
Sebastian Haller is looking particularly good for West Ham, with three goals in his last two appearances.
It's been a tough start to life back in the Premier League for Villa, who have lost three of four games so far, although they've mostly remained competitive, and can feel aggrieved not to take a point from Crystal Palace last time out, with a harshly disallowed late equaliser.
Villa's three points came at Villa Park in an evening kick-off against Everton, as Dean Smith's men turned up to put in a strong performance against a Toffees side chasing European football.
Trezeguet is suspended for the hosts here, but otherwise they're at full-strength with Grealish alongside John McGinn and Conor Hourihane in midfield and striker Wesley, who scored against Everton, leading the line.
We recommend going for an away win here, with West Ham looking in very fine form coming into this fixture.
