West Ham have four injury concerns heading into the game against Aston Villa this weekend. Jarrod Bowen picked up a knock in the 1-1 draw against Manchester United but manager David Moyes is confident that he’ll recover in time for tomorrow’s game.
There is less certainty over Aaron Cresswell and Ryan Fredericks (calf) who remain major doubts for the match at the London Stadium. Robert Snodgrass is unlikely to feature after a slow recovery from a back injury.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Aston Villa:
Fabianski, Johnson, Diop, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Noble, Rice, Soucek, Bowen, Antonio, Fornals
Villa boss Dean Smith should have left-back Neil Taylor back in contention following a thigh problem, but Ahmed Elmohamady (hamstring), Bjorn Engels (Achilles), Wesley Moraes and Tom Heaton (both knee) are all unavailable.
Aston Villa’s Predicted XI:
Reina, Guilbert, Konsa, Mings, Targett, McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Hourihane, Trezeguet, Samatta, Grealish
The bookmakers actually have Villa as slight favourites with Bet365 pricing them at 13/10 for the win. A draw is 13/5 with Betfair while a Hammers victory is 11/5 at William Hill.
Predicted Score – 1-0 to West Ham
