Tip Reasoning

  • West Ham have won five of their six competitive away games this season.
  • Aston Villa have lost their last three Premier League games and conceded eight goals in the process.
  • Michail Antonio has seven goals in ten appearances for West Ham this season.

Villains struggle for momentum

Aston Villa’s slump in form continued last weekend as they were comfortably beaten at the hands of the resurgent Arsenal and Dean Smith’s side could be in for a fourth consecutive defeat when they face one of the form sides in the Premier League.

The hosts have struggled to find any sort of consistency so far this season, with their host of new arrivals struggling to bed in at Villa Park and injury problems prolonging the transition, too. They have lost each of their last three games and have just two wins in their last eight in all competitions.

Hammers flying high after cup success

West Ham are having no such issues, despite a relatively hectic fixture list. The Hammers knocked Carabao Cup-specialists Manchester City out of the competition on penalties in midweek to follow up on their fantastic win over London-rivals Spurs last weekend.

They have now won six of their last eight within 90 minutes in all competitions and have kept six clean sheets in the process, pushing them up to fourth in the Premier League and putting them in a fine position in both the Europa League and the Carabao Cup.

The Hammers have lost just two of their 14 competitive games this season and things get even better for David Moyes’ side away from home. They remain unbeaten on the road, winning five of their six competitive games and conceding just once in their last five.

Antonio can lead Hammers to victory

It’s hard to back against West Ham right now and they look excellent value to take all three points at Villa Park, so that’s what I’m backing on Sunday.

I’m also expecting a clean sheet after their recent defensive successes and, with Aston Villa conceding eight in their last three, I’m opting for a 2-0 correct score prediction.

One man stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to the anytime goalscorer market and that’s Michail Antonio. The West Ham striker has scored seven goals in ten outings this season and bagged the winner against Spurs last weekend, so I’m backing him to add to his tally.
