There is quite a gap between the Champions League spots and those below it, with Aston Villa looking to fend off Tottenham whereas West Ham aim to close in on the likes of Manchester United and shake off Wolves and Newcastle.

West Ham currently sit seventh in the Premier League after 28 games. The Hammers have 12 wins, seven draws and nine losses, leaving them on 43 points, ten points from European football.

The Hammers have been underwhelming in front of goal this season, scoring just 43 goals in 28 games, an average of 1.59 goals a game. West Ham have struggled defensively with some big losses this season. The Hammers have conceded 47 goals and have kept five clean sheets.

Aston Villa sit just above West Ham in fourth in the Premier League. In 28 games, Villa have 17 wins, four draws and seven losses which leaves them on 55 points, just two points ahead of Tottenham.

Villa have been amongst the goals this season, scoring 59 goals giving them an average of 2.19 goals a game. Aston Villa have also been consistent in defence, conceding 37 goals and keeping six clean sheets.

This will be the 120th meeting between West Ham and Aston Villa, with the first meeting coming back in 1913. The Hammers have the better record in the fixture with 45 wins in comparison to Aston Villa’s 39 wins, the other 35 games ending in a draw.

The last five games in the fixture have seen three West Ham wins, one draw and one Aston Villa win. However, other than the 1 - 0 West Ham win in August 2022, both teams have been on the scoresheet in the four other games, three of the games having over three goals.

FlashPicks Prediction

Despite West Ham historically having the better record in the fixture, Aston Villa have been far better than The Hammers this season and will likely take the win this weekend but with both teams on the scoresheet. West Ham 1-2 Aston Villa
