West Ham manager David Moyes will be able to welcome back Michail Antonio to the squad for the clash against Aston Villa on Monday night. The 30-year-old has missed the last three games due to a hamstring injury.
The Hammers may also have Andriy Yarmolenko back for the game after the Ukrainian had to self-isolate following a positive virus test whilst on international duty. It could mean Moyes has a fully fit squad to choose from for the game at the London Stadium.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Aston Villa:
Fabianski, Coufal, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Masuaku, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Haller, Fornals
Villans boss Dean Smith is likely still reeling from the 2-1 home defeat to Brighton last weekend. He will have Kortney Hause (adductor), Frederic Guilbert (side) and Keinan Davis (ankle) back in contention but the likes of Ross Barkley (hamstring), Wesley (knee), Bjorn Engels (thigh) and Tom Heaton (knee) are all unavailable.
Aston Villa’s Predicted XI:
Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett, Luiz, McGinn, Hourihane, Trezeguet, Watkins, Grealish
The bookmakers have made West Ham the slight favourites for this game with Unibet pricing them at 13/10 for the win. A draw is currently 13/5 with Sky Bet while an Aston Villa victory is 21/10 at Betway.
