West Ham should have Vladimir Coufal back available for the game against Aston Villa on Sunday. The Czech international missed the win over Viborg midweek due to concussion protocols after being knocked out during the defeat to Brighton.
Manager David Moyes could also have Craig Dawson (thigh) back in contention if the defender passes a late fitness test. Summer signing Nayef Aguerd remains sidelined with an ankle injury.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Play Aston Villa:
Fabianski, Coufal, Kehrer, Zouma, Cresswell, Soucek, Fornals, Rice, Bowen, Scamacca, Benrahma
Villa boss Steven Gerrard will welcome back Ludwig Augustinsson following a knee problem, but Diego Carlos is out for the long term after rupturing his Achilles tendon.
Aston Villa’s Predicted XI:
Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne, Ramsey, Kamara, McGinn, Bailey, Ings, Watkins
The bookies have made Villa the favourites with 888 Sport pricing them at 13/10 for the win. A draw is 5/2 with Betfred while a victory for the Hammers is 9/4 at the same bookmaker.
Predicted Score – 1-1
