West Ham Utd. – Aston Villa

Write-up by Dusko Koricanac

The Hammers search for a 1st property win

West Ham opened the current season with an away win towards Hull City (2-), but considering that then they’ve discovered eleven aggressive video games (9 in Premier) devoid of a single win. Club solved a difficulty in attacking line by bringing Italian Alessandro Diamanti, but latest concern is defense line that are leaking also significantly objectives. West Ham conceded 14 targets in previous 6 games in Premier! However, their overall performance looks far better than benefits. Two two-2 draws, towards Arsenal at residence and Sunderland on the road, carry the hope for much better long run. At their property, Boleyn Ground (typically known as Upton Park), Hammers have two draws and two defeats and desperately will need a win that would transfer them from the relegation zone. On that activity will be with out midfielder Radoslav Kovac who is suspended following his recent sending off in opposition to Sunderland, whilst Kieron Dyer stays on harm listing with a hamstring dilemma. But, big increase for team’s morale will be a return of essential midfielder Scott Parker.

The dream looks so shut

The Villains took only two factors from final three games on the street (Blackburn Rovers 1-two, Wolverhampton Wanderers one-one and Everton one-one), but nevertheless maintain a higher placement in Premier and win at East London would start them on area range 4. Champions League spot is a target for Villa in very last handful of a long time and tonight could be only the additional motive. However, Villa search in not so good shape lately (right after win around Chelsea 2-1) and currrently Upton Park looks like a difficult place to go. Norwegian John Carew put a very good show in opposition to Everton and he’s anticipated to commence the game in attack alongside excellent Gabriel Agbonlahor. Manager Martin O’Neill will have some issues in midfield as Stiliyan Petrov and James Milner are carrying the knocks. They’ll face a late fitness test, whilst Nigel Reo-Coker (ex West Ham) and Fabian Delph are standing by to replace them. And while this duo could be replaced with out as well a lot difficulties, headache for O’Neill is suspension of his crucial defender, Carlos Cuellar at right-again. Villa are unbeaten in their very last six conferences with West Ham (3 wins and three draws).

Diverse motives at Upton Park

West Ham chase a 1st home win to run from the bottom, Villa want a move to Champions League spot, the two sides will not be satisfied with one point. Hosts will assault, but I doubt their defense can end killer duo Carew- Agbonlahor. Bet on targets looks like a logic conclusion.
