In the 29th round, West Ham will host Aston Villa at London Stadium, with both teams have slightly different tasks. While West Ham only aims to compete for the European Cup spots in the tables, Aston Villa has a serious competition with Tottenham, and the desire to bring the UEFA Champions League nights to Villa Park was seriously shaken in the previous round. West Ham does not have hopes for the Champions League and is concentrating on its current Europa League run. In the first-round match, Aston Villa looked way better than West Ham which was reflected on the scoresheet as well (4-1), but this time, the outcome probably will not be so evident.

West Ham United vs Aston Villa Preview 

West Ham United Preview

West Ham cruised past Freiburg in UEFA Europa League (5-0), showing one of the team’s best performance this season so far, completely being over their unwinning streak of 9 consecutive matches in January and February which almost got David Moyes being fired. The Hammers still have theoretical chances to climb into the Europa League spot for the next season, with 10 points gap from Tottenham. Moreover, West Ham continues its journey in the current draw and in general, has a modest season. Given the shaky defeat of Aston Villa against Tottenham and the desire to have revenge over the defeat in the first-round match (4-1), the Hammers are waiting to continue its streak of three consecutive matches without a loss in the Premier League.

Aston Villa Preview 

Aston Villa unexpectedly lost to Tottenham without showing even half of what the team is capable of. The 4-0 loss definitely hurt both players and Unai Emery given that now the Villans are in danger of losing their 4th spot. Moreover, Aston Villa still has the most hard matches against Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool up ahead, which indirectly escalates the battle for the most important fourth place. Unai Emery understands that every point counts and if the team will be able to go over the hurtful match with Tottenham, we can expect another interesting match.
