WHU +155 O/U 3
The West Ham squad could be reeling a little bit as they have lost one of their forwards to Sevilla and that could hurt the chances of the team bringing home a win. The West Ham squad lost Javier Hernandez on the year and while the squad is tied for 4th place in what is a closely contested battle, the United club is one of the few that is at that spot with a -1 goal difference, which has them at the bottom of the 4th place table.
Already on the young season, though, the West Ham players have seen Sebastian Haller become a leader for the team with 3 goals in 3 matches this year. Andriy Yarmolenko is the second leading scorer with 1 goal. As a whole the team has scored 6 goals, but the keeper has allowed 7 goals to slip past him.
Aston Villa is heading into the game here still upset about the goal that was disallowed by VAR in the last game they had against Crystal Palace. The game was one that could have bumped the Villa team out of the bottom of the league, but also knocked the Palace team down some notches and definitely out of the third spot they are now sitting in for the standings.
John McGinn has been able to get a goal and an assist for the Villa squad this season. However, no player for Aston Villa has more than a single goal, but also the team as a whole only has 4 goals scored. The defense has allowed 2 goals on the year so far and comes in with a -2 on the goal difference.
The Aston Villa club has had some problems playing defense and when the Villa team does get the ball they are not able to drive the ball down into the opponents zone and secure a goal. However, the West Ham squad did lose a top flight scorer to Sevilla, but that will not make a difference as West Ham has a lot of talented players who can bring home a goal. Final Score Prediction, West Ham United win 2-1.
