Aston Villa will face West Ham United at their home ground. They meet again in the fourth round of the English championship. Will the Birmingham side break their losing streak in their head-to-head encounters?Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
In three games in the current EPL campaign, Aston Villa has performed below their potential. In the first leg, they lost away to newcomer Bournemouth 0:2. The Birmingham side beat Everton 2:1 at home and then lost 1:3 away to Crystal Palace in the third leg. The Lions are only 13th in the EPL standings. Aston Villa thrashed Bolton 4:1 on the road this week to reach the round of 32 in the English League Cup.
West Ham United's start to the EPL season has been frankly disappointing. They lost to Manchester City in the first leg, followed by defeat to Nottingham Forest. In the third round, the Hammers lost to Brighton. It is worth noting that West Ham didn't score a single goal in these matches. West Ham is the only team in the current Premier League campaign not to have scored a single goal (last place in the standing).
Expert Betting Tips
The only positive moment for West Ham is two wins over Viborg and qualification to the Conference League group stage. Moyes' side now needs to perform at its best in the EPL. The match against Aston Villa could be a perfect time for the Hammers if you look at the statistics in their head-to-head encounters - four wins in a row for the Londoners. However, the visitors have had a tighter schedule, which could affect the players' form after the break. We believe there will be plenty of corner kicks in the upcoming match.
