Aston Villa vs West Ham Lineups and Last Match

Aston Villa

Aston Villa picked up a point in their derby match against Wolves last time out. The pair played out a goalless first-half but early in the second, Wolves took the lead. Aston Villa responded really well to going behind, equalising through defender Pau Torres just 2-minutes later. Wolve shad a man sent-off in stoppage-time but there wasn't enough time remaining for Villa to capitalise and the game ended all square. Buendia, Mings, Moreno, Iroegbunam and Ramsey could all miss out this weekend through injury.

Predicted Lineup – Martínez (GK), Digne, Carlos, Torres, Konsa, Cash, McGinn, Kamara, Luiz, Watkins & Diaby 

West Ham

West Ham knew they were in for a tough game at home to Newcastle, but the hosts gave as good as they got over the 90-minutes. Soucek fired the Hammers in front after 8-minutes but two goals in the space of 5 second-half minutes saw Newcastle take the lead. New summer signing Kudus scored his first Premier League goal to secure West Ham a share of the spoils in the 89th-minute. Cresswell, Johnson and Fabianski are the main injury concerns for the visitors this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Areola (GK), Coufal, Zouma, Emerson, Aguerd, Ward-Prowse, Souček, Paquetá, Álvarez, Antonio & Bowen

Player to Watch: Ollie Watkins

The Aston Villa striker, Ollie Watkins, has impressed this season both scoring and creating goals on a regular basis.

The 27-year-old has proven himself to be a Premier League striker, one that Aston Villa nearly lost under the management of Steven Gerrard. Thankfully for the Villa faithful their hardworking forward has stayed at the club and looks renewed under the guidance of Unai Emery.

After scoring the winner for England against Australia, we're backing Watkins to impress once again this weekend when he returns to domestic duty with Aston Villa.
