West Ham vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

Aston Villa will be hoping to guarantee themselves a place in the Premier League next season when they travel to London for a clash with West Ham.

Villa are currently above the relegation zone due to their slightly better goal difference over Watford. The small margin means that Dean Smith and his men simply have to win if they are to survive.

Should the visitors fail to get the three points, they risk opening the door for Watford who would overtake them with a victory over Arsenal. It should also be mentioned that should Villa and Watford both lose, then Bournemouth would overtake them both with a win against Everton.

As things stand, Villa are priced at 13/10 to win this Sunday. West Ham, on the other hand, are available at 2/1.

Both teams are in good form and both have won two of their last three league games. Villa’s victories over Crystal Palace and Arsenal have propelled them out of the bottom three. West Ham, meanwhile, enjoyed recent wins over Norwich and Watford as David Moyes continues the rebuilding job at the Hammers.

The London outfit don’t exactly have much to play for in this game however, with United in good form it’s hard to bet against them. Villa have also enjoyed an upturn in form but the question remains whether they’ll be able to take the heat and produce a strong performance when it really matters.

With such narrow margins, our recommendation is to back the draw which is currently available at 13/5.

Four of the last seven head to head games between these two teams have ended in draws; three of those were goalless. If you want a better price you could back another goalless draw to take place at the current offer of 14/1.

    Aston Villa survive late scare to retain Premier League status at West Ham

    Jack Grealish took centre stage as Aston Villa escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth after a 1-1 draw at West Ham.

    The Villa captain, whose future at his boyhood club remains uncertain, came up with the goal which should have settled their nerves six minutes from the end.

    However, moments later Grealish deflected in Andriy Yarmolenko’s shot to leave the visitors hanging on by a thread again, knowing another West Ham goal would send them down with rivals Bournemouth beating Everton.

    Yet Villa, who were seven points from safety heading into their game against Crystal Palace on July 12, held on to complete their version of the great escape to stay up by a single point.

    The four-match unbeaten run Dean Smith’s men managed to end the season with, including wins over Crystal Palace and Arsenal, kept their heads above water while the Cherries and Watford joined Norwich through the trapdoor.

    West Ham should have provided relatively compliant opposition having guaranteed their own safety a couple of matches ago.

    Yet Villa hearts were in their mouths after 12 minutes when Michail Antonio burst clean through as he latched onto Issa Diop’s long ball.

    The forward had scored eight goals in his previous six matches, but this time his finishing deserted him as he scuffed his volley wide.

    The visitors got their first sight of goal when Mbwana Samatta rose to meet Frederic Guilbert’s cross, but his header flew straight at Lukasz Fabianski.

    Grealish should have put Villa ahead just before half-time when John McGinn’s ball across the pitch was helped on by Samatta to the left-hand side of the penalty area.

    Grealish shaped to curl the ball around Fabianski but could only clip his effort straight at the Polish goalkeeper.

    The news that Bournemouth were winning must have been relayed to the Villa players at half-time, because they emerged with far greater urgency.

    Samatta missed his kick in front of goal from Conor Hourihane’s cross and McGinn’s follow-up was hacked clear by Ben Johnson.

    But Villa soon retreated and West Ham could have had a penalty when Mark Noble was tripped by Matt Targett, before Sebastien Haller and Tomas Soucek were off target with headers.

    However, when John McGinn found Grealish on the left of the area, he managed to wriggle away from two men and fire a powerful shot past Fabianski.

    When Yarmolenko’s long-range shot looped in off Grealish, it suddenly looked like it might not be their day after all.

    But five minutes of stoppage time were safely negotiated and a point ultimately proved enough, meaning the celebrations could begin.
