West Ham United vs Aston Villa: prediction for the Premier League Week 28

A massive clash near the top of the table!

Aston Villa will visit the British capital to face West Ham United at London Stadium in a stand alone Sunday clash. The Premier League Week 28 will conclude on March 17, at 3 PM CET.

West Ham United

Winning the Conference League in 2023 gave West Ham United a boost to stay in the race for the Champions League spot in the first half of the Premier League season, but 2024, so far, is not being as kind to the Hammers.

West Ham could not find a victory for nearly two months, fell closer to the middle of the table and after seemingly turning the tide, lost on the road to Freiburg in Europa League before barely snatching a point at home against an outmatched Burnley. Still, an extended homestand gives WHU a chance to stay in the UEL and the race for sixth in EPL, but a high quality opponent is coming up to town on Sunday.

Aston Villa

After it looked like Aston Villa got back on track to lurk near the top-3, the Birmingham based club got demolished at home by Tottenham Hotspur, falling nine points behind the leading Arsenal.

A tough week with a trip to Amsterdam and an aforementioned clash with the Spurs will change to another uneasy one. Ajax will come to Villa Park, as the hosts will try to advance in the Conference League after an emotional “0-0” draw in the Netherlands, before the Villans travel to London Stadium to face West Ham United on Sunday.

Prediction ⚽️

Aston Villa crushed West Ham United in the first round in October, winning “4-1”, but they have not beaten the Hammers on the road since returning to the Premier League in 2019.

With two volatile squads, having to play on short rest after stints in the European competitions, it will come down to the sheer force of will. And with Aston Villa still being in the coveted Champions League, they might need it a bit more, so we will side with the visitors and hefty 2.42 odds 🔥.
