West Ham vs Aston Villa by Rahul
West Ham are now able to welcome back Diafra Sakho who has been outstanding for them, and was the player of the month back in October. He will be looking to continue that form heading into this game now to try and to help this side against a struggling Aston Villa side who blew a 1-0 lead conceding 2 goals in the final 10 minutes after a red card for Benteke who will miss this game. Sam Allardyce had to change around his team and his style of play, instead of direct, for more flair, strong winger play and through balls. The player who has blossomed most in this change in style has been Downing, who has been given a free role behind the strikers to roam around to create the ball as he sees fit.
Aston Villa are looking a lost cause these days, after losing 6 straight games against Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Everton, QPR and Tottenham while only scoring once (last week) in their last 2 months. With Beneteke out, all the pressure will fall on Weimann and Agbonlahor to handle the scoring efforts. Their defense has been completely lost despite the return of Ron Vlaar. In their last 5 games they have concede 12 goals, and they have looked absolutely lost in organization especially against teams who go direct.
West Ham in great form, need to secure a win to keep up with the top 5 as their current form suggests, and at home the crowd should boost them to this victory against Aston Villa.
