West Ham United v Aston Villa 20:00

– Last season’s repeat fixture ended, West Ham 1-1 Aston Villa

– Both head-to-heads last season ended in DRAWS

– 5 of the last 8 head-to-heads ended in DRAWS

– The last 8 head-to-heads went UNDER 2.5 GOALS

– Both teams ‘DIDN’T’ score in 6 of the last 8 head-to-heads

– Villa have scored just 3 goals in their last 8 vs West Ham

– 2 of the last 3 head-to-heads saw RED CARDS (1 each)

It’s Claret all the way on Monday night as West Ham entertain Aston Villa in another intriguing Premier League encounter.

Both sides have started the new season well, with Villa winning 5 of their opening 9 league games, while West Ham have won four – and there is just a point separating the two sides in the table.

The match betting is tight too, with West Ham on offer at 2.37, the Draw 3.50 and Villa 2.80.

Last season this clash ended in a 1-1 draw, so a repeat of this score might be on your radar at 7.50. In fact, a draw has been a popular outcome with both head-to-heads last season ended all square, while 5 of the last 8 clashes also ended with the teams sharing the points.

The last 8 meetings also went UNDER 2.5 GOALS, so it’s slightly surprising to see this option as the second favourite at 2.10 in this market – with Over 2.5 goals at 1.72.

Both teams ‘Didn’t’ score in 6 of the last 8 meetings so at 2.25 this is another option – Villa has actually only netted 3 times in their last 8 games against the Hammers.

With 2 of the last 3 meetings having a red card (1 each), then there is a bit of needle between the teams of late so this might be worth considering too – a red card in the game can be backed around 4.00.

Looking at the scoring markets, West Ham’s Antonio is sure to be popular at 6.00 (1st) or 2.40 (anytime), while Villa’s pin-up boy – Jack Grealish – is 9.00 (1st) or 3.40 (anytime)

Overall, a tricky game to call so the DRAW at 3.50 might be the best way to play this one.
