  • Edson Alvarez to be booked

Bet builder pays 15/2

Team News

Ollie Watkins enjoyed a goalscoring appearance for England over the international break and will now return to club football. Emi Buendia and Tyrone Mings remain out with long-term injuries but there is hope that Alex Moreno will return at the end of this month, although this game may come too soon. 

For West Ham, Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson are still suffering from issues and are likely to miss out here, as David Moyes attempts to fight on four fronts this season. 

Match Odds

Aston Villa are 9/10 to win this game, while West Ham are the underdogs at 5/2. A draw can be backed at 11/4. BTTS Yes can be picked out at 8/15, BTTS No is 11/8 and over 2.5 goals is 4/7

Aston Villa to win

This looks like a cracking match up on paper but Villa Park is a special place this season and it appears Villa are thriving on home soil. They smashed Brighton and Hove Albion 6-1 in their last home game and can tear any team apart on their day. I feel West Ham may, having lost to Liverpool in their last away Premier League match, be on the end of another defeat.

BTTS Yes

We’ve seen how phenomenal Villa have been in front of goal recently, but West Ham’s games have also been thrilling this season. Seven of their eight league matches this season have ended BTTS Yes, and their only clean sheet has come against struggling Sheffield United. Meanwhile five of Villa’s eight games have ended BTTS Yes. We should see goals. 

Ollie Watkins to score

Four goals and four assists in eight Premier League games so far for Ollie Watkins this season, and you can visibly see the confidence he is playing with. With a goal for his country over the break, he is sure to be raring to go when he puts on a claret shirt again. Backing him to score feels like a sensible choice. 

Edson Alvarez to be booked

To bump the odds up, we’ve added a card into the mix in what should be a competitive battle. In midfield, Aston Villa’s talented squad is going to need stopping and the man who could be in for a rough time is Edson Alvarez. Clearly talented, the destructive midfielder is also susceptible to a yellow card, having picked up two in his last three outings.
