West Ham can make a daring dash up the Premier League table this evening in a key clash with Aston Villa at the London Stadium.
The Hammers were in disarray prior to the 2020/21 campaign with a growing rift between the club’s owners and fans but David Moyes has negotiated a tricky set of Premier League fixtures to bring about relative peacetime in east London.
The former Everton and Manchester United boss has turned his side into a tricky-to-beat unit capable of scoring a goal or two as well, with previous big money signings finally beginning to justify their price tags.
Aston Villa enjoyed a tremendous start to the campaign, but they’re currently levelling out with a host of wins and draws to their name, without a single draw.
Boss Dean Smith will hope for stability this term and will be looking to take a point or more away from the capital this evening to press and probe on top-half rivals.
